Read thru quite a bit of the threads and the full award, but two pressing questions that I was looking for clarification:

When can we expect the actual posting of the CCA positions on usps.com?

And

Would it be safe to assume that an instillation will post the equivalent number of CCA positions as the # of TEs in the current instillation?

I understand its not to be a new job, into which TEs may be selected to move. I think it says all current TEs WILL BE CONVERTED to CCA within 90 days of the agreement. You will just change over to that designation, not lose your TE job and then have to bid on or be rehired as a CCA.

The cap on TE's is 8%. The cap on CCA's is 15%. There should be more CCA's than TE's. CCA's will still have to be "hired" rather than converted, but a TE with years of experience AND a passing score should have a big advantage.
If you ever start to feel like the world has forgotten about you, try missing a couple payments.

That is why they recently hired 3000 TEs, to increase the cap percentage

I dont think there will be a "public" post for CCA for a long time I think all dormant TE applicants will be notified via email first and I can imagine there is a long waiting list as it is.

On the PSE side, it took the PO quite a while, past the deadline, to post PSE positions. Some casuals were still around until replaced with PSEs. I think the experience with PSEs will help the PO get its act together sooner, but there might still be some TEs past the plan.

Some of your post lead me to believe you dont work for the Post Office, genx There is no "Hiring List" as a whole, there is for a specific posting but thats a candidate list of those that applied to said posting. You dont actually believe the PO will contact every single person with a passing score and tell them theres a new posting, do you? Everyone will need to apply for the postings once theyre up. The PO will not seek you out and tell you to apply cardboardbox2013-01-12 08:15:54

What state is that? Curious to see what description looks like.

Edit: I see some now They were all posted on Jan 10, the very same day the contract was awarded. Thats the fastest I've ever seen the Post Office work Of course it happens when its to their benefit with cost cutting positions cardboardbox2013-01-12 08:32:11

cardboardbox I just assumed that the general public will not know about CCA position. A person from the street who applied for TE prior and saw that their application status was "hiring list" is not going to go back to the site to apply for CCA they are oblivious to what is going on. So it would make sense for the USPS to send out emails notifying previous TE applicants who were on the "hiring list" of the new CCA position opportunity.

everyone is forgetting what the clerk casual went through.

didn't matter if they had a test score or not.

all casual had to re-apply and take the test and go through the hiring process again.

everyone who wants to work should go now and create a profile on USPS.com

It takes some time to create a profile and its not a good idea to wait.

Also they can apply for any PSE position to take the 473 test now on that profile then delete the application to keep the score.

I'm sure if its possible and required to create a new profile if the current employee applied through the system and is currently working then its possible to create multiple profiles and test more than once.

They can not be converted. They must take the exam pass it and be interviewed based on the score.

Job postings are starting today. "CITY CARRIER (TRANSITIONAL EMPLOYEE OR ASSISTANT)"
It looks like they just posted for all of the plants in my state and its still early.

Hopefully they will notify the TE's in those plants sooner than later that they will have to reapply.
