No Pay or Benefit Cuts for Postal Employees in Federal Budget

On Thursday, Oct. 26, the House of Representatives voted to approve the Senate’s budget resolution. 

With both chambers in agreement, there is now a budget which lays out limits for 2018 federal government spending.

 

 

2017 Penalty Overtime Exclusion Period

Reminder, in accordance with Article 8, sections 4 and 5, of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, penalty 

overtime rules are not applicable for a consecutive four-week period each year during December. 

This year, the December period begins December 2, 2017 (Pay Period 25-17- Week 2) 

and ends December 29, 2017 (Pay Period 01-18 - Week 1).

 

 

Update on the House Budget Resolution

On Thursday, Oct. 5, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to advance its 2018 budget resolution. 

This resolution is a broad measure that designates government spending with far-reaching implications, 

including enormous cuts to postal and federal workers, as well as America’s social safety net, 

while providing tax cuts for the wealthy. While the resolution passed the House on a narrow 219 to 206 vote, 

a federal budget can only take effect if agreed to by both chambers.
