UPMA Grows & Protects Postal Leadership Careers
1. Tools to Fast-track Career Development
2. Professional Representation When You Need it Most
3. For EAS and those aspiring to lead
The United Postmasters and Managers of America invite all Postmasters, Managers, Supervisors and other USPS employees with the goal of being an EAS employee to join us. In these uncertain times it is even more important that you belong to an organization that is working for the rights of all EAS employees and that will keep the needs of all UPMA members at the forefront of its mission.
Today, The Postal Service formally advised UPMA that these proposed modifications to the PFP payouts for FY 2023 will become official.
UPMA was consulted and agreed with the PFP adjustments as proposed. We want to show our gratitude for the continued collaboration to recognize further the efforts of Postmasters, Supervisors, Managers, and all other EAS covered by this program.
In that vein, we look forward to further discussions on salaries, pay bands, and benefits between now and the end of the year. We believe that together, we can take more steps, like this one, towards fully correlating duties and responsibilities with pay and benefits.
Understanding that pay talks will likely not begin until 2024, we appreciate Postal Leadership’s continued dialogue in this regard.

As many of you and your members have discovered, we migrated to a new website this past week. With this migration there has been a change to the login procedures. You no longer need to have two logins; one for the website and one for your membership information, the only login you need is your username and password that you previously used to access the “member login” portion of the website. Also, if we do not have a valid email address in our database, you will not be able to gain access to the website.

I wanted to share the following example of why our Legal Defense fund is the industry standard. This email is from Tamika; I have redacted it to protect client confidentiality.
I hope this message finds you in good spirits. I want to share that in the Upma Member matter, we have reached a settlement with the Agency for the following:
There is a global resolution of all claims/complaints/appeals. 2. The Service will remove the Notice of Proposed Removal and Letter of Decision on the removal action from the eOPF. The appellant will submit their retirement request, effective Date 99, 9999. 3. They agree they will not apply for or accept future employment with the USPS for at least five years from the date they sign the agreement. 4. Change LWOP to paid administrative leave from Month 99 to the removal date. 5. $4500 attorney fees
Facts of the case:
This was an unlawful suspension case for more than 14 days. First Last was an EAS-17 Supervisor of the City State Post Office. Beginning from Date 99, 9999, for more than 30 continuous days, the Agency placed Member on Leave Without Pay (LWOP). Additionally, the Agency put them on LWOP for 24 hours in the Financial Year (PP) and for 24 hours in the Financial Year (PP).
First, although the Member's LWOP status that led to unlawful suspension began in April, the Agency paid them in February and March. We were able to get the Agency to go back and pay them for all the time they were on LWOP in January, too.
Second, The UPMA Member was not eligible for Adverse Action Legal Defense representation in their removal claim. Still, we were able to reach a settlement in his unlawful suspension case that included what they wanted for the removal, too.
We have sent a check to UPMA in the amount of $4500 for reimbursement of attorney fees.
So, there is no comparison between the NAPS Disciplinary Defense Fund and our Legal Defense Plan.
