Save the Date

This year’s dinner dance will be held on Sunday, November 10, 2019 at the Marina Del Rey from 12 noon to 5 p.m. The cost of a ticket is $90 and includes a cocktail hour, 3 course meal, dessert and drinks.

This year, Branch 36 will be honoring former 1st Vice President Harold Hillard, former 2nd Vice President Pat McNally and Frankie Perez, who during his letter carrier career served as a Shop Steward, Hearing Officer and Trustee. All three men have much in common, each served Branch 36 and its members with loyalty, honor and dedication. Let’s thank them all for their triumphant years of service by making this the biggest dinner dance ever.

I would also like to remind everyone about our dinner dance journal ads. The journal ads cost $5.00 per person and all monies collected from the journal ads go towards the Eyeglass and Scholarship Fund.

We all know it is important that we get our eyes checked as we age. The Eyeglass Voucher covers an eye exam and glasses and/or a discount wherever applicable. Each year Branch 36 looks forward to awarding four scholarships to the children of our members. These scholarships assist members with the cost of a college education. So, save the date and don’t forget to support the dinner dance journal ads.

Lastly, for everyone attending the METS game on Sunday, June 16th at Citifield: LET’S GO METS!! Happy Father’s Day!

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!
