The Union and management have signed the 2021 Holiday Annex Agreement.
The Holiday Annex will be operational from November 15, 2021, through December 23, 2021.
The location for the 2021 Holiday Annex is located at 14620 Gold Coast Road, Suite 420, LaVista, NE 68128. This is the newly leased Package Support Annex.
The Omaha Area Local initiated this agreement approximately 20 years ago in order to allow full-time regular clerks the option to choose to follow the mail and/or sectional work at the annual holiday annex before such work would be assigned to non-career employees.
Volunteer sheets for clerks and PSEs are up now! Contact the Union with any issues regarding the ability to volunteer and work at the Holiday Annex.
The new Flexible Rover System (FRS) and Single Induction Parcel Sorter (SIPS) will be operational during peak season. The initial staffing of these operations will be from clerks/PSEs who volunteer/are assigned to work at the Holiday Annex during peak season. The determination of clerk duty assignments for the FRS/SIPS will be made during/after the peak season. It is anticipated that these clerk duty assignments will be posted for bid in January/February.
The annex will be staffed with at least one expediter per tour.
The positions available at the annex will be offered by seniority to clerks holding duty assignments in the manual section, by tour. These positions will first be offered by seniority to clerks whose work is being performed at the annex [priority mail]. After clerks holding priority duty assignments have had the option to work at the annex, the remaining available positions will be offered by seniority to clerks in the manual section, by tour, whose work is not being performed at the annex.
Overtime at the plant and the annex will operate as independent units.
Overtime at the annex will be rotated only with the employees at the annex.
Overtime at the plant will be rotated only with those manual clerks remaining at the plant.
PSEs working over 8 hours will apply separately at each location.
Clerks at the plant and the annex will be worked overtime in each location independently prior to the use of PSEs for more than 8 hours in a service day at the location the PSE is working when they go over 8 hours.
