CCA to PTF Conversion

Due to the recent settlement of national-level case Q16N-4Q-C-19225551, M-01906 in NALC’s Materials Reference System (MRS), concerning the Postal Service hiring city carrier assistant (CCA) employees above the contractual caps, many CCAs will be converted to career status either as a full-time regular or part-time flexible (PTF).

With the signing of M-01906, members may have questions about the differences between the PTF and CCA classifications.  Many of these questions have been answered in the October 2018 edition of The Postal Record. While the 2018 article references M-01892 signed in July 2018, all of the questions and answers presented in the article are still valid.

For more information on conversion to career and a variety of other topics, members should read the Letter Carrier Resource Guide. A PDF of the guide is available for download by clicking the link or members can order a printed copy via the Members Only section of the NALC website.
