Leaders of the three management associations continue to meet with Postal Headquarters officials concerning the Fiscal Year 2014 Unit Goals. Headquarters has committed to work with the associations in an effort to ensure that the Unit Goals will be finalized by the beginning of Fiscal Year 2014. Postmaster Pay For Performance (PFP) ratings wil be applied to salary determinations for FY 2014 and FY 2015. A decision on PFP ratings applications to salaries for FY 2013 has not yet been determined.
Discussions with postal leaders also included OIC opportunities for POStPlan impacted Postmasters to vacant level 18 postions. These assingments should provide the impacted Postmasters with the needed experience to better qualify for vacant level 18 positions prior to the RIF effective date next year. Additonal discussions on POStPlan impacted Postmasters who will face possible RIF separations will continue between the Postmaster organizations and Postal Headquarters.
