USPS Management’s TACS manipulations and Article 12 withholding ramifications require additional instruction for all Branch #34 representatives. 


Nearly all of Branch #34’s seventy-plus Station Stewards joined President Yerkes and Branch Officers on Wednesday, September 20th for an in-depth presentation on the reading and understanding the USPS’ Time and Attendance Control System (TACS) reports as a direct result of the ongoing investigation into time manipulations at the Chelsea IMC and elsewhere.  


Our Stewards were also provided substantive guidance on our National Agreement’s Article 12 provisions and the issues relative to the Postal Service’s recent decision to withhold vacant City Letter Carrier positions as potential landing spots for excessed and displaced Full-time Regular Clerks currently working in the Boston Installation.
