9B --June 13, 1976 Sunday Gasefte-Mail Charleston, West Virginia Letter Carriers Protesting Order By Jeffrey Mills WASHINGTON (AP) - The letter carriers' union is fighting a Postal Service order that mailmen must walk across residents' lawns to deliver the mail faster. Arbitration on the issue begins here Wednesday before Paul Passer, a former assistant secretary of labor. "We are saying that management has the right to require letter carriers to cross lawns." a Postal Service spokesman said. "The whole idea is to save time and money by delivering mail in the most effi- cient way possible," he said. James Rademacher, president of the 200.000-member National Association of Letter Carriers, said. "It's ridiculous to make letter carriers trespass on the lawns of the American people as part of an economy program for the Postal Service." Many letter carriers already walk across lawns but the Postal Service has been moving to require it when it is the quickest route to the mailbox. The arbitration centers around a clause in the Postal Service's contract with its labor unions providing that. "Letter carriers may cross lawns while making deliveries if customers do not object and there are no particular hazards to the customer." Rademacher said the word "may" is permissive. "This means it is up to the letter carrier." the union leader said. But postal management has used the provision as authority for ordering the lawn crossings. "This is a proper interpre- tation of the agreement," the Postal Service spokesman said. He stressed that anyone can avoid having his lawn crossed simply by registering an objection with the Postal Service. Meanwhile, a second arbitration case brought by the union against a different Postal Service efficiency plan is not expected to be decided before this fall, sources said.
