6-5 Area and Local Coordination

Area and local Human Resources must coordinate closely throughout implementation to ensure that repositioning of bargaining and nonbargaining unit employees is accomplished in accordance with applicable provisions of the ELM and national agreements between the Postal Service and employee organizations. Compliance with the national agreement requires notification of bargaining unit employees who will be involuntarily reassigned between installations. After the national-level employee organizations have been notified, the district’s Human Resources office ensures adherence to the various advance notice periods for the local employees.
