Win by persuasion when possible
Beat them at the table when necessary
And give 'em hell generally

This website was created to serve APWU members of the Clerk Craft (Iowa, Missouri and Arkansas) and of the Maintenance Craft (Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska). It is a joint venture of the Clerk Craft NBAs and the Maintenance Craft NBA of the Kansas City Office, made possible by the dedication and hard work of our secretarial staff.
You have entered the Maintenance Craft page of our website. Welcome!
Here you should find information -- some archival, as well as currently important -- to assist the State and Local Officers and Stewards and the members. Please feel free to offer comments or suggestions for improvement to this website and, as always, feel free to ask questions.
With the shift of personnel work out of local and district offices into the centralized Human Resources Shared Services center, more and more matters for Postal Service employees must be handled electronically, over the internet (or intranet from inside the Postal Service computing environment). Employees interested in reviewing their own Official Personnel Folder (OPF) are now required to view it in electronic format, not in hardcopy.
Everyone should be aware that there are times when material in the OPF is incorrect, outdated or incomplete and that the individual employee has certain rights to assure that the OPF information is correct and up to date. The Postal Service recently issued a form for the purpose of assisting employees in obtaining corrections to the OPF -- or eOPF in the new terminology. This is the PS Form 8043. It allows the individual employee to request amendments, for specific reasons, to be made to his or her eOPF. Please see the attached file for a copy of this form.
