Canal Employees Will Have

Special Job Placement Aid

This is the first in a series of ar-
ticles on placement assistance that
will he offered to displaced employ-
ees. This article provides informa-
tton for U.S. citizens who are eligible
for assistance in obtaining jobs in
the United States. Future articles will
describe local placement assistance
that will be offered to both U.S. and
non-U.S.-citizen employees.
The Panama Canal Treaty of 1977
states that U.S. citizens who were"
employed by the Panama Canal
Company or Canal Zone Govern-
ment prior to entry into force of the
Treaty and who are displaced from
employment as a direct result of
implementation of the Treaty will
be provided maximum possible
placement assistance.
Similar assistance will also be
provided to employees of other U.S.
Government agencies in the Canal
Zone who are involuntarily sep-
arated as a result of Treaty imple-
mentation. In addition, special place-
ment assistance will be extended to
U.S.-citizen employees of the Pan-
ama Canal Company or Canal Zone
Government who desire other Fed-
eral employment within the United

Transfer Notices

Go Out to 3,000

Canal Employees
This week the Personnel Bureau
distributed Notices of Transfer of
Function to more than 3,000 em-
ployees of the Panama Canal Com-
pany/Canal Zone Government who
will be transferred to the Depart-
ment of Defense on October 1,
Approximately 40 school officers,
510 teachers and 2,680 employees
of various divisions within the Canal
organization will receive the letters
which outline the options available
to employees involved in the trans-
fer and compare their present bene-
fits to those they will receive as
employees of the Department of
Early retirement options, leave
systems, housing, rotation and trans-
fer, and health benefits are among
the topics covered. Recipients are
asked to complete and return two
attachments: a Decision Sheet which
states that they either accept, decline
or prefer to take no action in regard
to inclusion in the transfer to the De-
partment of Defense; and an Ac-
knowledgment Sheet which ac-
knowledges receipt of the Notice of
Transfer of Function.

The Personnel Bureau has re-
ceived information on a Federal
Government-wide placement pro-
gram for Canal Zone employees to
he administered by the Office of
Personnel Management (OPM). The
program will go into effect on
April 1.
Two priority levels of employment
consideration have been established
by OPM. Priority level 1 consists of
those U.S.-citizen employees of the
Panama Canal Company, Canal
Zone Government and other Fed-
Seral agencies in the Canal Zone who
are involuntarily separated as a di-
rect result of the Treaty. Priority
level 2 is made up of U.S.-citizen
employees of the Panama Canal
Company or Canal Zone Govern-
ment who wish to obtain other Fed-
eral employment in the United
States even though they are not
scheduled for separation.
With certain exceptions, agencies
in the United States will not be able
to fill positions by any other means
when priority level 1 employees are
qualified and available. When pri-
ority level 2 employees are qual-
ified and available, agencies will.not
be permitted to fill positions by
appointments from outside the
agency. Agencies may object to a
Canal Zone referral only if he/she
does not meet the qualification
standards published by the Office of
Personnel Management or selective
factors approved by the area office.
To register for placement assist-
ance, two copies of a modified Dis-
placed Employees Registration Form
and two copies of the Standard
Form 171 must be completed jointly
by the Personnel Bureau and the
employee. Employees may register
for up to five occupational categories
for which they qualify, at the grade
from which they were separated and
all other lower grades which they
are willing to accept. They may
register for two civil service regions
or for one region and Washington,
Priority level 1 employees will be
permitted to register for the spe-
cial placement assistance program
throughout the life of the Treaty
from the time of the receipt of their
separation notices until 90 days after
the effective date of separation.
Priority level 2 employees may
register any time within five years
after April 1, 1979.
Employees may remain in the
program for up to one year from the
date of their registration or separa-
tion, whichever is later, but will be
removed sooner if they are placed
in a continuing Federal position or

Senior Traffic Officer Lt. Jerry L. Carlton, who is in
charge of the Canal Zone Police Division's anti-defor-
estation project, instructs forestry aids on their jungle
patrol assignments for the day. Ready for "bush patrol"
from left are, Roxana Segundo, the only female forestry
aid in the six member team, Carl Meissner Jr., Eddie
Acosta Jr. and Luis Cerezo, right. The forestry aids are
bilingual and were trained in radio communication and

on the type of destruction to look for in the forest. Two
members of the team patrol forest areas on the Atlantic
side of the Isthmus. The Police Division is tasked with
the action of implementing the anti-deforestation
program for the Canal Zone which is a joint effort by
the Panama Canal and the Panama Government to
control and prevent further destruction of the forest
areas currently within the Canal Zone.

Going To Resign or Retire? Think It Over Carefully

Federal personnel regulations state
that a resignation is binding on an
employee once he has submitted it.
On this basis an agency may refuse
to permit the employee to withdraw
a voluntary resignation or voluntary
retirement provided that there exists
a valid reason for such refusal.
A valid reason might be a showing
that it would cause administrative
disruption or that the employee's
job has been committed to someone
In the past it has been Company/
Government policy to permit an em-
ployee to withdraw his resignation
at any time prior to the date it is
to become effective. However, the
tremendous number of transfer-of-
function and reduction-in-force ac-
tions that must be processed by this
agency during the next eight months
necessitates the temporary adoption
of a more restrictive policy. Changes
in effective dates of voluntary re-
signations and retirements would
constitute administrative disruptions
which would severely complicate
the reduction-in-force process.
For this reason, all voluntary re-
signations and retirement applica-
tions submitted by employees from
now to September 30, 1979 will be
binding on the employee and may
not be withdrawn nor, in most cases,
may the effective date be changed.

Under the circumstances, employees
are cautioned to submit applications
for voluntary resignation or retire-
ment only after careful and serious
consideration of the desired effec-
tive date. Employees in organiza-
tions being transferred to the De-
partment of Defense will be ex-
cepted from this policy unless it is
determined in advance that accept-
ing a withdrawal would cause an

undue disruption in the gaining
agencies' placement efforts.
Those employees who submitted
their resignations or retirement ap-
plications prior to the issuance of
this change will have until Feb-
ruary 28, 1979 to withdraw their
requests if they wish to reconsider
their decisions. After that date, the
temporary policy change will apply
to these employees as well.

All Federal Pay Increases Limited

To 5.5 Percent in Fiscal Year 1979

President Carter has issued a di-
rective to the heads of all Federal
agencies to limit pay increases occur-
ring in their agencies during fiscal
year 1979 to a 5.5 percent ceiling.
This directive applies to the Pan-
ama Canal Company/Canal Zone
In his January 4 memorandum,
the President stated, ".. I have

bership of the Panama Canal Em-
ployees Mutual Benefit Association

ama Canal Training Center.
All members are urged to attend.

determined that it would be incon-
sistent with the public interest for
any category of Federal pay rates
to be increased by more than 5.5
percent during fiscal year 1979."
Pay increases for the non-manual
and manual categories which oc-
curred earlier this fiscal year were
limited to 5.5 percent. Other in-
creases scheduled for this year for
major pay categories include the
railroad, power branch, postal and
floating equipment groups. It is ex-
pected that the increases for these
groups will be similarly limited to
a 5.5 percent maximum.
Fiscal year 1979 began on
October 1, 1978, and ends on Sep-
tember 30. 197Q

Spillway Prints All Unofficial News That Fits

The SPILLWAY is glad to receive
and publish news from clubs and
.organizations throughout the Canal
Zone. But whether or not a par-
ticular story appears depends on
two things: how soon the story is
received and whether or not official
news leaves space for it.
. We operate on a first-come, first-
served basis for club news. Even if
an item is received in advance of

the Friday noon deadline, it still
,may not get in the following
Friday's paper if other stories were
submitted earlier.
The second and all-deciding fac-
tor is official news, such as the sub-
committee reports and vehicle reg-
istration, that lately we've had such
an abundance of. These stories
must appear; then we print all
other news that fits.

that will be sold.
The local observance has been
coordinated by the Office of Equal
Opportunity for the Panama Canal
organization with the assistance of
the Black Student Union of the
Canal Zone College, employees of
the. Company-Government, military

Canal employees considering re-
locating to another position within
the Federal government or seeking
advancement within the organiza-

publication received at the Canal
Zone Library.
It's The 171 Workbook by Pa-
tricia B. Wood, containing the lat-

Statement (Standard Form 171) and
step-by-step instructions and tips
to help you write an effective, com-
petitive 171.

Resume Place, Inc., a Washing-:
ton, D.C. company that will pre-
pare your 171 or job resume for
you, in addition to offering such
other services as job market re-
search, printing and direct mailing.
Wood's premise is that a well-
prepared 171 is the key to -achiev-
ing the highest possible ratings and
to securing promotions,in.,a Fed-
eral career, as well as its obvious
use in applying for and getting a
specific job.
A clue to the kind of thing a
reader can expect to gain from this
publication is contained in the
chapter titles: Chapter 3, "Speaking
the Language," is a dictionary of
Federal government jargon. Terms
an employee hears perhaps without
every knowing their precise mean-
ing-words such as "career appoint-
ment" and "excepted positions"-
are explained in language anyone
can understand.
Chapter 8 is "Buzz Words", a
list of strong verbs (such as "ad-
minstered," "coordinated," "organ-
ized," and "recommended") to be
used on the 171 in describing your
experience. These words',il-Wod
says, should be used for the very
reason that they appear so often in
official descriptions of required

About one fifth of the workbook
is made up of a personalized Form
171 ready to be torn out and used.
It is personalized in that there are
several pages of unlined, different
sized experience blocks-ranging
from full page to the customary
1/3 page-which allows an indi-
vidual to choose the amount't of
space needed to describe his or
her duties in a particular position.
Wood checked with the Civil
Service Commission to insure that
the forms in the workbook are
The workbook explains, 'item by
item, each of the 35 questions that
appear on the 171. The author
spoke with personnel directors and
officials of the Civil Service Com-
mission to find out exactly what
information they are lookingfor in
each item and explains how to use
even Item 22-D Hobbies to your
advantage in selling yourself to' a
potential employer.

UVa a Renunciar o a Jubilarse? Pienselo Bien

Los reglamentos del personal Fe-
deral disponen que las renuncias son
obligantes para los empleados una
vez que hayan sido entregadas. En
base a 6sto, una agencia puede ne-
garse a permitir que un empleado
anule su renuncia voluntaria o jubi-
laci6n voluntaria si existe una raz6n
vAlida para tal negaci6n. Una raz6n
vAlida podria ser que tal anulaci6n
cause contratiempos administrativos
o que el puesto haya sido lenado
por otro empleado.
Anteriormente, era political de la
Compaiiia y Gobierno permitir que
un empleado anulara su renuncia
en cualquier moment antes de que
fuera efectiva. Empero, el crecido
nmmero de medidas de transferencia
de funciones y reducci6n de perso-
nal que tienen que ser procesadas
por esta agencia durante los pr6xi-
mos ocho meses hace imperative
que temporalmente se adopted una
political mas restrictive. Los cambios
de fechas de efectividad de renun-
cias y jubilaciones voluntarias cau-
sarian interrupciones administrativas
que podrian complicar gravemente
el process de reducci6n de personal.
Es por esto que todas las solici-
tudes de renuncias o jubilaciones
voluntarias que sean entregadas por
los empleados desde hoy hasta el
30 de septiembre de 1979 serin de
acatamiiento obligado para el em-
pleado y no ,)odraii ser anuladas ni,
en la niayoria de los casos, se podr"t
camrliar la f a l de sd efectividad.

Bajo estas circunstancias, se les ad-
vierte a los empleados que, antes de
entregar una solicitud de renuncia
o jubilaci6n, mediten seria y cuida-
dosamente sobre la fecha en que en
realidad desean hacer efectiva la
acci6n. Los empleados de las orga-
nizaciones que serAn.transferidas al
Departamento de Defensa estarin
exceptuados de dicha political salvo
que se determine con anterioridad
que el aceptar dicha anulaci6n cau-

saria interrupci6n innecesaria en lks
esfuerzos de colocaci6n de la agencia
que los recibiria.
Aquellos empleados que hayan en-
tregado sus solicitudes de renuncia o
jubilaci6n antes de la entrada en vi-
gencia de esta media tendrAn hasta
el 28 de febrero de 1979 para retirar
sus solicitudes si desean reconsiderar
su decision. Despu6s de esa fecha,
este cambio temporal de political se
aplicarA a todos los empleados.

Noticia Extraoficial Aparece Si Hay Espacio

El SPILLWAY recibe y public
comunicados de clubes y organiza-
ciones de la Zona del Canal con
much agrado. Pero, el que un ar-
ticulo en particular aparezca de-
pende de dos cosas: en qu6 fecha
se reciba el articulo y si las noti-
cias de carActer official dejan espa-
cio para su inserci6n en el peri6-
El que entregue su articulo pri-
mero tendrA mis probabilidades de
verlo publicado. Aunque su articulo

sea recibido antes del plazo para en-
tregarlo que es el viernes al medio-
dia, puede que no sea insertado en
el peri6dico del pr6ximo viernes si
otros articulos fueron entregados
El segundo factor a considerar
es la noticia official, tal como los
informes de las subcomisiones y el
registro de vehiculos. Estos articulos
tienen que ser publicados primero;
desputs, si queda espacio, pulblica-
mos los demas.

Tom Halvosa recibe el distintivo de
Explorador Eagle de su madre quien
se lo prende al unitorme durante la
Corte de Honor celebrada por la
Tropa 5, patrocinada por la Cate-
dral Saint Luke, de Anc6n. Tom,
pregraduando de la Escuela Secun-
daria de Balboa y explorador desde
hace 8 afios, es el ganador de todos
los 24 distintivos de m6rito, y es
miembro de la Orden de la Flecha,
fraternidad de honor de los Nifios
Exploradores de Am6rica. El pro-
yecto de servicio Eagle de Tom fue
el de coleccionar y reparar juguetes
para la Sala PediAtrica del Hospital
Gorgas, labor que realize con miem-
bros de su tropa. Es hijo de William
Halvosa y sefiora, de Los Rios. Su
padre fue administrator de correos
de Balboa hasta su jubilaci6n en
enero de 1976, y su madre es maes-
tra en la Escuela de Primer Ciclo de

>rmulario 171
La premise de Wood es que el
formulario 171 bien preparado es la
clave para lograr la mis alta clasifi-
caci6n possible y para asegurar as-
censos en una carrera Federal, asi
como tambi6n para solicitar y obte-
ner un empleo especifico.
Un ejemplo de lo que el lector
puede esperar de esta publicaci6n
se colige de los titulos de los capi-
tulos. Capitulo 3, "Speaking the
Language" (Hablando el Idioma) es
un diccionario de la jerigonza del
Gobierno Federal. Terminos que un
empleado escucha y qiue tal vez
jams logre entender sus significa-
dos exactos-palabras como "career
appointment" (empleados de carre-
ra) y "excepted positions" (posicio-
nes exceptuadas)-son explicados en
un idioma que cualquiera puede
El Capitulo 8 es "Buzz Words"
una lista de verbos tipicamente usa-
dos en informes oficiales (tales como
"administr6", "coordin", organicc'
y "recomend6") que deben usarse
en el formulario 171 para describir
su experiencia. Estas palabras, dice
Wood, deberAn usarse porque apa-
recen con tanta frecuencia'en des-
cripciones oficiales de la experiencia
"Information From the Feds" (In-
formaci6n del Gobierno Federal).
Capitulo 12, proporciona las direc-
ciones y n6meros telef6nicos de los
