Biatch, do you have any links to studies on what hot, stale air does to worker productivity and morale?

/m40713 FTF bids must be open for bid otherwise mgt would control where workers would work; if you were FTF on T1, you couldn't bid to T2 or 3.

Very sick? See if you qualify for FMLA and have a SHC. Each time you call in is one bang-in with first day 'unscheduled', the rest 'scheduled' sick. Up to and including 3 days, they gotta take your word for it. If they push for a note or toss out 'deems desirable', see union cause they don't have that right. See ELM, chapter 5, sick leave.

Not sure all your answers are here but it's a good start; JCIM: http://www.apwu.org/sites/apwu/files/resou.../jcim-2012-july.pdf Read last few and you'll have a good grounding in APWU contract.

/m40712 No, the FTF positions can't be bid on. I'm not sure why but it probably has to do with FTF's not being locked into a set schedule.

I came here hoping for a search engine but there isn't one. A while back there was a discussion on unexcused absences due to illness. I'm very sick so highly doubt I'll feel like working for a few days, or at least a couple. How many days in a row can be missed and counted as only 1 unexcused absence? Is it 1, 2, 3?

Can current SLC DCO FTF's bid on the FTF DCO positions that are posted on the bid sheet? What happens if they do? I heard a co-worker say that SLC REC (FTF) keyers are not supposed to bid on the FTF DCO positions that are listed on the bid sheet. Can anyone verify this, and explain why?

/m40709 I am sure it is just a "typo " but a 7:30 pm start time is Tour 3.

/m40708 Because those are the hours mgt wants to work, and likely matches up with mail/work flow.

Tours for workers are just a way to divide jobs for bidding and OT purposes; midnight, 8 am, and 4 pm. Bids are assigned to a tour depending on where the majority of the hours fall. So 8.08 pm is T1 and 7:30 pm is T2 and so on.

Is that right? Then how come the main switches of command happen at 6 a.m. 2 p.m., and around 10 p.m.?

Basically, tour 2 is dayshift, tour 3 is evening shift, and tour 1 is night shift. Technically, tour 2 is any shift that starts after 4:01 am ; tour 3 is any shift that starts after 12:01 pm ; and tour 1 is any shift that starts after 8:01 pm.

We had a full week of early outs in tour 2. One day I tried to use a full-day pac, was told it wasn't slow enough, then they let us out over 4 hours early. How slow does it have to be before they let me stay at home the whole day?

Yeah, I was wondering why they haven't offered any pretours yet. They offer early outs during the day, especially on Mondays. Please tell me that it will slow down a little! I would love to have a breather. This job gets too monotonous at times and some days I just need to leave early or not go in at all!

I'm a little surprised they're offering modified schedules for PSEs. I dont know how it is during the day, but at night mail gets crazy high, especially PRES volumes. So much that they call overtime. I dont see the summer months being like they use to. I love my paychecks now working full time, but I kinda miss the days where there were pretours, full day pac offers, and early outs. It sure made for a fun summer! Lol!

Well four 6 hour days at full time pay would be ideal for me, but dang it, that'll never happen! Haha
I just want one extra day during the week to get things done. It would be so nice.

Ekate. Listen. I had thought that 40 in 4 days sounded great. I was in the Air Force in Hawaii. I had 24 people. We went to there for 30 days. I thought every body would love it. After 30 days the vote was 22 to 2 to go back to 40 in 5 days.
Reasons varied. I let the two that liked it to remain but two weeks later they wanted to go back.

Go figure.
