POSSIBLE PAYCHECK DELAYS

02/18/21

At 3:15pm the USPS notified APWU Headquarters of the following:        

The USPS has been informed that some payroll checks for PP4 are delayed due to FedEx network/transportation issues.  This is impacting several Areas.  The checks may not be received at the destination office by payday, Friday, Feb 19.  District and Local management have been instructed that impacted employees will need to be issued a Salary Advance via AdjustPay.  The employee is entitled to the full amount of the check as listed on the payroll register.  At this time we do not have a list of impacted facilities.         

 

President Dimondstein has requested the list of impacted facilities and employees. There should be no dispute over advances. Any impacted employee who requests an advance is entitled to get one in the full amount of the net check through AdjustPay.        

 

We are awaiting instructions from local management on how employees should make their request for an advance.  More details will be provided when they are known.  Employees who do not want an advance andchoose to wait for their check need do nothing. Employees with direct deposit are not affected by this delay.

 

COST OF LIVING INCREASE

02/15/21


         The 5th Cost of Living Increase (COLA) under the APWU 2018 - 2021 Contract has been finalized.

The effective date of the COLA will be provided once it has been finalized. The APWU is the only Union that retained full COLA. That means that every career APWU employee will receive the $416 COLA.  Whereas, other unions agreed to COLA-lite, which some employees receive more while others receive less.

FFCRA WITHOLDINGS TO BE REFUNDED

08/27/20

If you took leave under the Family First Coronavirus Response Act, after April 1, 2020, any deductions for TSP or FERS/CSRS retirement will be refunded to you.  The USPS has been informed that FFCRA leave was not subject to retirement withholding.  These monies will be refunded to you in your paycheck on October 02, 2020.  The refund of these monies will not impact your creditable service time towards retirement eligibility.

If you wish to leave this money in TSP and CSRS/FERS, you will have to change your leave from FFCRA to a different leave type.  Contact your supervisor to request an adjustment of your FFCRA leave changing it over to your own annual or sick leave.

This is optional.  If you do not want to use your own leave to cover your FFRCA absence you need do nothing and the retirement withholdings will be refunded to you.
