The question is are we deemed to be "Temporary employees already in the bargaining unit, (i.e. those employees currently covered by the provisions of Article 44)" because we are not "indeterminate" or PT or FT. So what happens to us?
"If they accept a promotion to a part-time or full-time regular position, they will not receive a cut in pay. So, for example, a temporary employee who accepts a promotion to regular part-time or full-time letter carrier position in March of 2013 will continue to make the same hourly wage and follow the pay increments currently contained in the collective agreement."
Except why would CPC hire us at the higher wage; why not dismiss us and give newer terms (post Feb 1st 2013) the jobs at the lower wage? So another question is "do terms (who have their 480hrs) hired before Feb 1st 2013 have job security (ie cannot be fired/let go)? Will they continue to make their current wage if they are not indeterminate/PT/FT? Once they do get hired on as indeterminate or PT or FT LCs what wage will they make then?
