@Concerned.....I agree with PITBULL* 100%. Have you ever heard the saying "No good deed goes unpunished'? That is certainly true in this case. You will be singled out and treated as though you were the bad guy because management usually doesn't want the responsibility of dealing with a less than honest clerk. It would require too much effort on their part. It's easier for them to look the other way. I know that you think you are being the "good" clerk, but management will just consider you a squeaky wheel that needs to be dealt with. Heaven forbid that you report this clerk and they count his or her drawer and it balances. Then you will look like a liar as well. I've been through this before. My response from management was basically that they didn't want to do anything that attracted the attention of the OIG. They decided to do their own investigation by asking the clerk straight out if they were stealing. What do you think the clerk said? After their "investigation" they decided that I had made the whole thing up. I know a lot o people out there will probably think I got what I deserved for snitching, but I always think about that street rule of don't snitch and how many problems it has caused. I thought honesty was a virtue, now I know that turning a blind eye is an even better one.

Concerned -- If the person is just borrowing I really do not think it is worth the time. If you do decide to turn the clerk in you can believe more eyes will be on you than are on the person you suspect of borrowing, as the clerk and the postmaster (that you by-passed) will have eyes on you. We all know they can find you doing something wrong if they look hard enough, even if it is the way you were trained. Unless you know it is theft, and it is on a continuing basis I would remain silent because of the enviornment the postal managers created.

/m2596 are you sure you want to go down that street?

don't you have cameras in your office? the inspectors should figure it out sooner or later.

If I suspect another window clerk in my office of stealing (borrowing) from their pos drawer, who do I contact? I don't feel like our manager responds to anything we take to her.

/m2591 it is pretty much your job to do what you are told. you can never go wrong doing what a manager tells you. this is because if there is ever an issue you just state "I was doing what I was told".

I'm a 36 hour ntft employee. Since January I normally work 41-46 hours per week. I have never received an hour of out of schedule pay and only hours of overtime when I work over an 8 hour day. If I work 6 eight hour days, I get 48 hours of straight time. What can I do to receive the $2500 they currently owe me? The union says its not grevable????

Susie and postalvet I have asked Postmaster and he says if there is no line tape it for them. If there is a line tell them to step aside and I will help when there are no more customers. We also fill out a couple customers money orders for them. One seems to be mentally challenged so I have no problem with hers. The other is a guy in a wheelchair that can write his address on the envelopes and seems fine mentally. The packaging really annoys me especially when it is all set on the counter and they expect me to do it. Is it written anywhere that it is not part of my job? All I can find is what my job description is and that is not part of it.

/m2588 what did the supervisor tell you to do?

Its been 5 yrs since I retired & I was told under no circumstances do you put their object in their mailing box, or address it for them unless they have no hands. There is such a thing as customer service and I may tape the back of the envelope. We do sell tape for their use. Smile and say "Were on candid camera.:

I am new to the window. Is it part of my job to tape a persons package for them? I can see doing it for older or disabled people but there are a couple people in their forties that come in and expect me to do it all for them. Pick what box or envelope to use, put object in mailing box, tape box and sometimes address them. I want to know if I can tell them to come back when they have package ready, that it is not my job to do it for them.

/m2585 better check your sources.

postalvet, retired postal clerks can not be rehired as a career employee, only as a non-career PMR or rural carrier associate. A recent exception is for city carriers to be able to work 4 weeks during Christmas rush, I assume at CCA wages. As far as losing money, you do not if you are a CSRS retiree, and only do as a FERS employee if you pass a certain threshold, the amount I do not know.

/m2582 how do you know the pm is paying retired people?

retired federal people loose retirement money if they work for the post office.

contact your elected rep.

Exactly. Postal Sales Associates/Window Clerks = horse designed by committee. Some backbone would do Everything for Your Garden a world of good. And next up, evidence that large brown mammals do indeed defecate in wooded areas!
