Carmen Flores
Director of Compensation
Outlook March / April 2019
Congratulations to the Heege & Ortiz Team!
will first like to thank our president, Charlie Heege, for having confidence in me to serve with him side by side as one of his part-time officers. Secondly, thank you to all the members for having faith in our abilities as a team. I am certain that you will be satisfied with the representation you will soon receive from all of us. As I transition into my new position as your Director of Compensation, I am well aware of the big shoes I must fill.

First Vice President Anibal “Sonny” Guadalupe, former Director of Compensation, has been my mentor for many years, and I thank him for his time, dedication and patience. Sonny has been sharing his vast knowledge of OWCP with me and I now feel ready to assist the membership with their concerns and OWCP claims.

Many carriers are suffering from Traumatic, Occupational and Recurrent work related injuries. Management is required to provide all OWCP forms upon request. You have up to three (3) years from the last exposure to the working condition that caused the injury to file a claim for compensation. Once you have submitted your claim, it is the Postal Service’s responsibility to ensure that the claim gets to the Labor Department within 10 days. If this does not happen, notify your shop steward immediately so that a grievance can be filed.

Once again, congratulations to the Charlie Heege & Pascual Ortiz Team. Happy Easter!
