Please review the attached documents. The procedures listed will assist any carrier identified as the senior bidder (temporarily disabled) versus successfulbidder in securing the bid assignment. The first page is a letter that comes from Health and Resource Management (HRM) to advise you on what you need to do to certify you will be able to carry the route in six months. The letter also contains an attachment with the functional requirements of the job. Carriers, DO NOT WAIT FOR THIS LETTER TO COME TO YOU!!! Article 41 and the National MOU 00752 only give you 10 days from the date of the award posting to get that letter to the postmaster’s office and Health and Resource Management (HRM). That information is also on the first page of every bid vacancy award posting.
What we strongly encourage carriers in this situation to do is download the attached functional requirements letter (and the example letter of physician approval) after you receive notification you are the senior bidder. Once downloaded, go to the doctor and get him/her to complete the letter. The use official physician letterhead or doctor’s stamp is strongly encouraged. Last, make sure HRM and the Postmaster’s office receives the documentation within 10 days. Send it certified or drop it off and keep a copy for yourself.

I filed a citywide class action grievance today over this repeated poor excuse for a carrier vacancy posting roster. There are a number of errors that management is refusing to correct and re-post, so they can pay significantly for them in January. These are the errors listed:
The following errors were found on the Vacancy Posting #211291:
Route 14051/Job 95845708 was not posted (Frank Tejeda) for bid after it was vacated by P. Phongsavane on 10/11/2019 when he bid to Route 19049/Job 95753234.
Route 32053/Job 95799223 was not posted for bid (Thousand Oaks) after it was vacated by R. Montoya on 10/11/2019 when he bid to Route 29003/Job 95806322.
Route 32061/Job 71424547 is a new assignment at Thousand Oaks and should have been posted for bid.
Route 38035/Job 95518135
