Mutual Exchange Offers

Hello Members of the 480 481 Area Local. Welcome to your Mutual Exchange Page.

On this page you will find listings from those wishing to come to the area Via Mutual Exchange of positions (or as it is more commonly called a SWAP.)

The following language in the 2010-2015 Contract governs employees who choose to move from one installation to another via a mutual exchange/SWAP.

Article 37.2.D.5.d.7.

Change in Which Seniority is Modified

When mutual exchanges are made between Clerk Craft employees in the same status in different installations, both of the exchanging employees shall take the seniority date or relative standing on the part-time flexible roll of the junior employee involved and shall be reassigned as unassigned full-time regular or part-time flexible employees based on existing status.

So – If you are looking to move and keep some level of seniority – check back here from time to time and see who might be wishing to do the same. Postings will be up for a period of 180 days. If they remain up it will be at the request of the person requesting a SWAP.

Good Luck!!
