We have been advised by Postal Service Headquarters officials that rural carriers will see the contractual retro payment in their May 15, 2020 paycheck/direct deposit. This delayed payment remains inexcusable, excessive, unreasonable, and unprecedented. The Step 4 grievance we filed on February 24, 2020 is unaffected by this development and will be heard by the parties at Step 4. Absent a satisfactory resolution, we intend to pursue this grievance in National Arbitration.
Note: Anyone no longer working for the USPS for whatever reason, that is entitled to the retro payment will receive their payment in a check. The check will be mailed to their last duty station and can be picked up at that location.
