UPMA request for changes to the Annual Leave Carryover and the ALE fringe benefit programs

Posted by Frank Augustosky on 09/03/20

National President Dan Heins is pleased to announce that his request to have the limits on the amount of annual leave that could be carried over to Fiscal Year 2021 during this troubling year we have been having with the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges related to it in 2020, has been granted by Postal Service Headquarters.    The letter outlining the changes is posted on the website.   You will be able to carry over an additional 80 hours in 2020, and also have the right to exchange (sell back) an additional 40 hours in 2021.    I hope that this is enough to prevent anyone from having to forfeit any leave at the end of this year.
