wait a minute, you are a MM (maintenance mechanic)and want OT as a custodian???

not permitted any more;

it says higher level work but it will also apply to lower level work.

beside, why would a company pay a mechanic to clean the floors?

would you go to an auto repair facility and ask them to fix your plumbing?

I am qualified to run a mop and broom which is all that is being used on OT.
The union told mangt. that they had to bring me in that was 4 months ago.
I will check with FMLA cood. to see if there is a communication problem .

/m2496 now we are getting somewhere. the more info the better. check with the medical unit about what they told management your restrictions are. maybe there is a communications issue. what machines are you qualified on? is the OT on things you are not qualified on? what did the union say?

The only restriction I have is going up on a lift as I said. The work on OT consists of floor care and filling in on regular routes.
None of which involves a lift. I can work any amount of hours without a problem . Every other custodian is working 6 days at least while I am bypassed. I know OT is not guaranteed I am not an idiot.

overworked of course you are going to be hassled for calling in sick, that is the postal management way.

with your plant on the closing list "We have a Downtown Plant that is supposed to be closing." your words. management probably is not going to hire anyone.

call your union nba and let them know what is happening, also what has the local union done?

I am a Maintenance Mech. But we have Custodians, ET's and MPE's that are short as we'll and are working 6 days a week too. We have a Downtown Planet that is supposed to be closing. The MM down there are not working because the mail is coming over to us now. If we are working 6 days a week now what are they going to do with us for the holidays?

What state is this p&dc located in and are you a custodian? I know plenty of people over here not only looking for jobs but overtime as well!

/m2490 what are you?

I work at a P&DC. We are greatly under staffed! We are being forced to work 6 days a week an I am not on the overtime desired list but still being forced to come in to work on my Non volunteer day off. When I get over worked and call in sick to take a day off to rest management is trying to hold it against me and other employees! What can be done about this?

/m2488 how are you being discriminated against?

you have restriction, the OT is for work that is beyond your restrictions.

I do not know how to explain it any other way. OT is not guaranteed

I transferred to a custodial position 8 months ago. I immediately signed the OT list. After several months I was offered a N/S day. My supervisor told me it would be for overhead dusting-I reminded him I had a restriction and could not use the lift. He said I'll have you do something else. Five minutes later he cancelled the N/S day saying it was because of my restriction (It is in my FMLA). 6 months later I still am not being given OT even though every other custodian on the list on my tour is working 6 days. Today my supervisor asked someone not even on the list to come in on my N/S day. They refused I was not asked. The Union isn't taking action aside from telling management they have to bring me in. They (management)are ignoring this. We do not have bids and jobs can be different each day-many people are being brought in on N/S days to do floor care and basic cleaning. Should I file an EEO?
I would put this on the EEO forum but all the comments there are off the wall.

I bet you are correct. I was just thinking of the guys that work in states that it is legal.Now they may have to be tested. Oh well, good luck to all and I hope every one gets the job.

you are comparing apples to oranges.

the defense of marriage act was a federal law found unconstitutional this is why same sex is legal in the federal buildings.

marijuana is still classified as a schedule one drug by the feds and is not legal in any federal building.

state laws do not apply to federal buildings.
