Pert-Time, Letter Carrier, Route, Conversion, Minutes, Alternatives, Compensation


The Union alleges that a part-time letter carrier route was assessed at over 360 minutes, and for that reason should have been converted to a full-time route. The Union claims that the Employer moved part of the work of that route to another part- time route "on paper only" in order to avoid making the conversion. The Employer's position is that a route's being assessed at over 360 minutes does not automatically make it full-time, and that routes are always in a state of flux, and that the adjustments were made properly. According to the Employer, the Agreement allows valid alternatives to conversion.
