The Union and management have signed the 2020 Holiday Annex Agreement.
The Omaha Area Local initiated this agreement approximately 19 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.
The Holiday Annex will be operational from November 27, 2020, through December 23, 2020.
The location for the 2020 Holiday Annex is located at 770 N 114th St, Omaha, NE 68124 (same as last year, the former Bag and Save).
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 all 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.
