PTF over RCA


New member
Can management force a PTF to cover a route that’s not on their assignment over a RCA? Even if it means a regular will be forced in by using that RCA?

Whenever the leave replacement assigned to serve
a route is temporarily unavailable or no leave
replacement is assigned to the route, the Employer
may require a part-time flexible rural carrier to
serve the route prior to requiring those substitutes,
rural carrier associates, or rural carrier relief
employees who are the second or third leave
replacements designated for that route on the
leave replacement assignment list.
