Promotion Pay and Hold in Place dispute settled

This settlement (M-01893) lifts the hold in place instituted by USPS. The carriers affected by the hold in place will receive their step increases as scheduled prior to being held. These carriers will receive any retroactive pay owed back to the time they should have received their step increase(s).

After the Nov. 24, 2018, pay schedule consolidation and upgrade, all city letter carriers will be consolidated into a single grade and carrier technicians will receive additional compensation equivalent to 2.1 percent of the employee’s applicable hourly rate for all paid hours. However, carrier technicians will continue to be considered in a higher grade for the purpose of applying the provisions of Section 422.225 of the Employee and Labor Relations Manual (ELM). The settlement does not modify the promotional increase currently being received by any city letter carrier.
