/m2658 What /m2655 wanted to know was if PM had to or could do 1412 10 times a day and the answer is still no; it's not possible.

You are talking about how her hours will be charged; that is a different subject, and was not our thread.

So two takeaways. Learn how to refer to other messages properly. And learn how to pay attention and follow a topic to avoid confusing yourself and others.

No. That is wrong. Once logged on the window and until end of day consolidation she or he is staffing the window. I just confirmed this with an NBA and I am a steward.

/m2655 This is the format; '/' then 'm' then message #. But it doesn't seem to be working now because nothing changed color. [Note: color change does happen, but only you post]

1412 is the closeout and can only be done once each day. She needs to just sign-off the computer and lock her drawer either in place on the line or back in the safe.

I'm sure you guys have access to a system notebook either physically or on-line. Look up 'closeout procedures'.

As far as replies, Quick Topic is set up as one message after another. To reply to a specific post, so people can keep track & not get confused, you type a slash / then a letter m and then the post number (yours was 2655). So then you get a clickable link to the post: /m2655. Makes it a bit easier to follow.

I wish I knew how to do a reply to things others have posted but it just says I can do a new post so here goes. I have a question regarding what X-stew addressed about Postmasters doing a 1412. My new Postmaster's understanding is that every time she goes to the window for even three or four minutes she has to do a 1412. From what I read in X-stew's post she can only do that one time. Her understanding is that if she goes up to the window for five minutes she has to do a 1412 and that means that if she comes to the window only during busy times when one clerk is there she may have to do as many as 10 or more 1412's a day which to me seems ridiculous. Where can I find documentation on this? Thanks! 😊

Thank you for your response. I have made an inquiry to one the APWU NBAs to reference this too. I would say if there is a need for a backup window clerk due to window volume then there should be another window clerk on the clock. When and IF I get the references I will post them. Keep fighting Clerks... It is our money and livelihood  they are playing with and of course as usual violating our contract.

This is a new ballgame and there are no duties so settled that you wouldn't file. Union position is all time PM is logged in is window work subject to the agreed limitations. It is a very confusing situation, and there are not years of settled grievances for guidance. The grievances you file and win or lose, are making up the new rules.

Once a drawer is 'opened', 1412 must be done every time. Once a 1412 is run, that drawer can't be opened again during that day.

Confront only if you're the steward. Otherwise, call them and tell them all the work PM is doing, and let them file or not.

Hello small office clerks. Summer Slow Down is upon us and here comes the cuts in hours. I have a question regarding the amount of time an OIC, Postmaster, Manager working the window is accounted for for grievance purposes. It is my understanding that once he or she logs on and then completes his or her day by closing out with a 1412 whether or not he or she worked 20 minutes as a back up clerk and then did stamp inventory etc.... is counted towards clerk time.... or can he or she log on to administrative and then log off and then log on if the clerk line is backing up??.... and if the one clerk on the window needs help he or she logs on to window...... I want to be sure of this before I confront management with a grievance. I do believe it is the total time he or she is logged on to pos whether or not he or she does different fucntions whether the tasks are Manatorial or not.... a bit confused here. Please define with documention reference if you have it. Thanks.

I think 10% is on the high side, but I do know what you mean.

ALMOST GONE, Look at the bright side. If USPS does banking maybe that rude customer will throw money at you next time. You will have that 10% that will always be jerks that nobody wants to wait on, but they expect you to kiss their rears. Hang in there for retirement. I always expected one rude encounter a day while working there if it was a customer, coworker or a manager there always seemed to be whinny drama. Good luck.

This afternoon, while one of two window clerks waiting on a line to the door, I had a man swing a package at me. I truly thought he was going to hit me with it. He was upset because someone that had previously been to the window, that we asked to step aside and complete something, was taken before him when he was at the front of the line. Why do people feel they can abuse us just because we are on the other side of the counter? I can't wait to be retired and out of the rat race. And no, I refused to wait on him after that.
