California PVS – HCR Conversion Update
Dear MVS Members:
The arbitration hearings regarding the Postal Service’s attempt to eliminate the Postal Vehicle Service (PVS) in California concluded on Thursday, January 17, 2013. There were seven days of hearings.
In mid February 2013 the parties will submit their briefs (closing arguments) to the arbitrator and the arbitrator should issue an award in March 2013.
According to union sources, the APWU’s team of officers, lawyers, economist, contract experts, statisticians and craft witnesses did a remarkable job in presenting the union’s case.
If there are any new developments before the arbitrator issue his award, you will be advised.
