In the Post Office, can a limited duty carrier for 18 years be returned to full duty with seniority?
A city carrier in my office worked for three years and then spent 15 years on limited duty after an on the job injury. He was than reassessed as a clerk for two years. He is now going to be returned to full duty on the city carrier side after a "miracle" recovery. Does this seem correct? My union says it can't be fought.

Yes. He does not lose seniority. So when he is "fit for duty" he returns to regular duty in his original craft. I think he will be an unassigned regular, if I remember right. I have been retired a few years. Ask your stewart, or call your district rep.
