FULL Per Diem Target Date is November 1, 2022 for Three Years

As promised, this is an update on the newly negotiated per diem provisions of the collective bargaining agreement. Maintenance Division resident officers met three times in 2022 (twice via zoom, and once in person at Norman, OK).

The Postal Service has been working on renovating the Training Center to facilitate the transfer to per diem, with updated communications to the APWU and employees in September. The target effective date of Full Per Diem is November 1, 2022. Other details include:

The Agency proposed three tiers of dining options for employees at NCED:
