LEAD CLERK TACS SETTLEMENT
Hello APWU MEMBERS,
Here are the documents we discussed for you to utilize. Remember this settlement is a penalty for the Postal Services failure to comply with the CBA and not an individual make whole remedy. The only employees who will be paid are the ones that appear on the attached Lead Clerk List. To be added, the employee must show clear and convincing evidence that they are eligible by completing the Pacific Area TACS Form and providing the required information as instructed. Please do what you can to get the word out to all of your offices and members as we discussed in our meeting. It is solely the employees responsibility to fill out the form, get their form 50’s and send that information to BOTH my secretary and me. If you have any questions pertaining to this settlement, please contact me. I want to once again thank Shirley, Sonia and Eric for all their help and hard work with this issue. It was a team effort! Go out there and get those new Lead Clerk jobs!!!
GUIDE TO VETERANS RIGHTS AND BENEFITS
Dear Military Veteran and APWU Member,
The APWU membership includes tens of thousands of proud military veterans, many with
service- connected disabilities, who are now proud and dedicated postal workers and members
of our union. Many APWU retirees are also veterans.
The APWU is pleased to share this booklet with you, designed as a quick reference guide on
important rights and benefits of veterans employed by the United States Postal Service.
While this guide cannot address every issue, it includes topics of interest to veterans, including
Leave Accrual, Wounded Warriors Leave, Employment and Reemployment Rights, Merit
Systems Protection Board (MSPB) rights and Retirement Credit for Military Service. We
encourage you to explore the “Veterans Issues” section of the APWU website at
https://apwu.org/veterans-issues for further information on veteran-related issues and many
other subjects important to postal workers.
In addition, a new “APWU Veterans Network” was launched in 2021 to provide opportunities to
connect with other APWU veterans and stay informed on important issues.
We encourage you to avail yourself of your veteran-earned rights as well as to be fully involved
in the union and the continuing struggle to improve the rights and well-being of postal workers
and defend and expand the public Postal Service.
The APWU national leadership appreciates your sacrifice and commitment and we hope this
guide proves to be a valuable resource to you.
Sincerely and in Union Solidarity,
