Correction: Pay Period for Equipment Maintenance Allowance Schedule for Rural Routes

In the article “Equipment Maintenance Allowance Schedule for Rural Routes” in Postal Bulletin 22327 (12-29-11, page 67), the effective pay period is incorrect.

The paragraph is given again below with the corrected information in bold.

In accordance with provisions of Article 9, Section 2.J.3 of the Rural Carrier National Agreement, effective December 31, 2011 (Pay Period 2-12), the equipment maintenance allowance (EMA) will decrease from 72.0 cents per mile to 70.0 cents per mile. The EMA is 70.0 cents per mile, or a minimum of $28.00 per day, whichever is greater.
