That is so true. The productive ones get hurt and then scumbag PM's like mine throw them to the wolves.

No. They've never heard that.A productive employee is an employee with a LOW.

Any of you postmasters hear the phrase "a happy employee is a productive employee" ? The postmaster at my office (let me be clear, I am not grouping you all together) is a scumbag. He keeps doing everyone elses work in addition to his data entry job. When I catch him, I spend 2 hours writing a grievance, I win, I get paid an award and then he sneaks around and does it again, violating the cease and desist. I catch him, I file again and win again. How much sense does this make for the post office? It keeps costing $. I am trying to convince the clerks to file on him. We only have one regular clerk and the rest are ptf's and pse's. He does the work in front of the pse's and they won't file because they are afraid of what will happen to them. I like my job but the pm in this office is the biggest scumbag pm i have ever had.

If a person leaves the USPS before he is 56 (MRA) but has 30 years of service, can he start drawing his annuity at 56 without a penalty. Thanks!

I'm not a PM, but wonder why would you not attempt a delivery? It can't be delivered to the mailbox then a delivery attempt should be made.

If there is a postmaster on this forum, would you be so kind to answer my question. I am a rural carrier. Are we required to delivery a parcel to a customer's door if they have a locked mail box and the package would fit in their mailbox. I realize that we are required to dismount and deliver up to 1/2 of a mile for larger packages that will not fit in the box. I can not find any reference material on this issue except that the locked mail box has to be able to fit their normal mail...Thanks, Diane

Smart move NCCarrierv. I have considered that however I am not sure at this point in my life I would be able to handle a full time route. I did it for 5 years and in the area I live the weather is brutal for 7 or 8 months out of the year and I was miserable. I have 4 years to go to make 20 so I guess I will just stay put and hope for the best!

NCCarrierv-You must not be 57 years old with 25 years in the PO? If I were younger, I'd do the same. But having to take a 25% reduction on my annuity if I want to keep my insurance is not what I was hoping for in retirement.

I was a PM in a level 13 office for 7 years when POSTPlan was announced in May, 2012. I requested a voluntary lateral reassignment to a PTF carrier in August, 2012. My hourly rate dropped 44 cent an hour. I just made regular again after 19 months and now have my own route. I am not a gambler and did not want to sit there and become a part time postmaster with my pay cut by 40% or so.

confused..."I was informed today that they are now working on converting 2, 4 and 6 hour offices to clerk positions. What happened to the part time postmaster positions we were promised in 6 hour offices?'

Might be getting sold out by Donahoe as the other small office PM's have been.

Request to transfer to clerk craft... Part time PM at a 6 hour office here just did that to a PTF clerk in a level 18 office. She still gets 38 hrs a week and as a bonus....She received a PAY RAISE of $10 an hour to PTF clerk wages. Plus still in the FERS retirement.

No news on the arbitration being settled on this issue yet. Maybe management has figured they are going to lose this one.
Only makes sense if you're not going to have a PM in these offices, then at least have an experienced clerk in there and not some new hire PMR off the street with NO experience.

6 hour offices are still on eCareer for bid.

/3290 I have heard this also. Along with some L18's having remote PM with clerks in office. It makes sense to utilize skilled workers over off the street. I imagine it differs greatly from area to area.
Sometimes it feels like they are very close to doing my office that way. Then sometimes it feels like it might be a few years out. A good thing is that it appears the USPS is trying to find landing spots for the PMs.
