Postmasters whose FY 2013 overall numeric rating is 3 or below will receive an adjective rating of contributor.
Following years of management associations (NAPUS, League and NAPS) objections to non-bargaining employee’s performance ratings of non-contributor, most recently during our ongoing pay consultations, the Postal Service has decided to allow non-bargaining employees who received an overall numeric rating of 3 or below to receive an adjective rating of contributor for FY2013. Today the Postal Service made the following announcement:
The Postal Service has decided, through the consultation process with the management associations, to adopt a recommendation concerning the FY2013 Pay for Performance Program. Any non-bargaining employee whose FY2013 overall numeric rating in the Performance Evaluation System (PES) is 3 or below, will receive an adjectival rating of contributor.
The favorable rating change decision could serve to protect some EAS employees whose “non-contributor” rating could have caused them to lose their rights to be assigned to a different position in Round 2 of the RIF process.
I would like to take this final opportunity to wish incoming President Tony Leonardi and new Executive Director, Dave Ravenelle a hearty welcome as they begin their terms in 2014. On behalf of President Bob Rapoza and the NAPUS national office staff, we would like to wish you and your family a Happy Holiday Season.
