March is Maintenance Craft ‘Open Season’

Steve Raymer 
Maintenance Division Director

(This article by first appeared in the March/April 2012 issue of The American Postal Worker magazine.)

All maintenance craft employees should take advantage of the Maintenance Selection System (MSS) Open Season, regardless of your current occupational group assignment.

Open Season takes place just once every three years, so it is important to take advantage of the opportunity.

Open Season offers Maintenance Craft employees the chance to apply for placement on the Promotion Eligibility Registers (PERs) in their installation. It also provides options for employees in higher-level assignments who may want or need a lower-level assignment as some point in the future.

In accordance with Article 38.5.B.7 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, employees have until March 31 to submit their request for placement on PERs. USPS management should have notified employees of Open Season prior to March 1.

Please note that eligibility for non- MSS positions (Group Leader, Custodial or Maintenance Support Clerk) is derived in a different manner.

Apply for Every PER

As we have done for past open seasons, the Maintenance Division strongly recommends that Maintenance Craft employees apply for every PER in their installation. Do not let the fact that you may be testing for a lower-level position discourage you.

To be considered qualified for positions covered by the Maintenance Selection System (MSS), individuals must be able to generate an eligible rating, which includes a numerical score.

The Joint Contract Interpretation Manual (JCIM) states, “To be considered qualified an employee must either be eligible under the current in-craft process for the position in question or be a maintenance craft employee in the same level and occupational group as the vacancy.”

The Importance of Qualifying

The matter of being considered “qualified” is important. When higher-level employees wish to downgrade to lower-level positions, they must be qualified. Being qualified also determines which withheld duty assignments employees can acquire when excessing events occur.

If you have already qualified and are listed on a particular PER, there is no need to apply again. Those who have previously applied under the Revamped Maintenance Selection System Register (RMSS) have already been rated as either eligible or ineligible. Employees who received ineligible ratings for specific PERs can use the eligibility update procedure covered in Article 38.5.D of the contract to become eligible.

If a lower level duty assignment becomes available and you wish to have the option of being placed in the assignment, you must be able to generate an eligible rating.

Keeping Your Options Open

In addition, remember that even changes from one occupational group to another within the same level are treated as promotions under Article 38.5.B.3. of the contract.

Unlike openings for lower-level positions, an eligible rating for positions in the same level and higher levels will put you on the PERs for those specific occupational groups. An eligible rating on a lower-level occupational group, however, does not place you on the PER because it isn’t considered a “promotion;” instead, it makes you “minimally qualified” for the duty assignment and enables you to obtain a position in accordance with the “pecking order” outlined in the JCIM.

The MSS Open Season is all about keeping your options open. For example, ETs are not considered “qualified” for lower-level vacancies under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (except custodial positions, for which everyone is considered qualified). This is particularly true of those who were hired as ETs prior to June 2009, when the RMSS was implemented. An entrance eligibility rating does not transfer to in-craft eligibility from the entrance register.

Consequently, ETs who do not have a valid in-craft eligibility rating (such as those hired pre-RMSS), are considered qualified as long as they remain ETs. If they obtain a lower-level duty assignment, they will need to take the RMSS exam to get back on the PER for ETs. (They also will need an in-craft score to be used for the PER). Therefore, we suggest that current ETs apply for the ET positions during Open Season.

PER Rankings

Current PERs in your installation are ranked by seniority according to banded scores. The caveat is that everyone who was rated “eligible” under the old MSS test will be placed on the PER above those qualified through the RMSS test. Each process has its own banding, and since the results were derived under wholly different processes, they cannot be combined. Simply put, MSS is ranked above RMSS.

The change in Article 38 of the contract removed the favoritism that once existed for one occupational group over another when promotions were made. Accordingly, all occupational groups are included within their respective bands, and all are ranked within the band by installation seniority.
