The contract is clear on 204Bs.
In order for management to use an “acting” supervisor that gives direction to clerks, they MUST be filling a vacancy or absence for a minimum of 14 calendar days and it can last no longer than 90 days.
In other words, a 204B can not come in for “Amazon” Sunday and tell the clerks what to do. There is no vacancy or absence just because the supervisor/Postmaster does not want to come in on that day.
Additionally, when we file these grievances, we need to make sure that we include the 1723 (detail form) for both the 204B and the person that management is claiming the 204B is covering for (if on detail). If the regular supervisor is on leave, include the 3971 showing how long the leave was. If the regular supervisor bid off or retired, the form 50 that assigned them somewhere else or the ending form 50 for their retirement is needed.
We also want the clock rings for BOTH the 204B and the person they are supposed to be covering for.
REMEMBER: It does not matter what craft the 204B is from, if they are telling clerks what to do, the 14/90 rule applies to them!
