It is understanding the new RSS system is to combine all retail under one system. This would be from kiosks to large offices using same accounting system. This would also include Staples or any other future retail arrangements. So their retail will be as slow as USPS windows.

Why is the new RSS so S-L-O-W?????? To convince customers not to rely on USPS retail operations of course. It is a thinly veiled effort to get customers to use the SSK, contract postal units, and Staples.

/m2641 A parcel per the USPS DMM is any mail that is over 3/4" thickness OR over 12" in height OR 15" in length; weight does not matter. There are other characteristics you can read about from DMM 300, but the previous information are the basics. Linear inches are the height + width + length of an object.

Hey folks. I'm a CARRIER (gasp/choke) having a problem with management agreeing to what is a parcel and what isn't. How do YOU determine what a parcel is? Our guidelines: weighs over 3 pounds. Is bigger than a shoebox (how many different sizes of those are there?) or is over 18 linear inches. There is my issue. How do you measure 18 linear inches?? Thanks for your help. Its all one battle.

For better or worse, there is a contract that governs both sides. You first must allow union to address the issue so keep on them, get answers, and maybe a timetable. Talk to local, then NBA, then maybe DC, create a paper trail to show your efforts. Then if no go, and you're convinced union is ignoring the contract, call NLRB. They hold unions accountable to their agreements.

I'll bet way before you hear from NBA, you'll be back or have a reason why not, which you can them push with the others. I very much doubt any lawyer will be interested since there's no money to be won.

Thanks Susan but with whom do I file a labor complaint? Do I need my own lawyer? Thanks

Management will have to do alot of paperwork and work regarding your complaint.... so pursue that avenue ............. more effective and maybe quicker but also persist with your grievance and stay on it.... but definitely file labor charges.

Help needed from anyone
I am an excessed ptf clerk involuntarily reassigned as a carrier because of DUO. Arbitration award of sept 22 gives me recall rights to NTFT position in my former office. Postal service is not allowing me to retreat. Grievance was filed and is now at ADRP. Do I need to do anything else? How long will this take? Thanks

This has always perplexed me;  why they promote within the carrier section to work the window section.  I am now retired and I just sit back and enjoy reading these posts.  Good luck to everyone.Susie

/m2631 many years ago higher level management started feeling you did not need to know anything about postal operations only how to push people around.

Is there anyone else out there whose manager or supervisor doesn't know anything about retail, just running the carrier side? I don't understand how people are getting promoted and know nothing about retail. In my area I've had manager after manager that makes a mess of things when doing something as simple as transferring stock to the retail floor. Not only that, they are always asking the clerks how to do things. It's crazy. Most of our new management has been in the Post Office for less than five years. Some of our 204b's are even PSE's who have been in the Post Office less than a year. They are clueless. I have one now that didn't even know what target mail was and can't figure out how to use Notice 123 to look up prices. I get interrupted during my transactions countless times during the day because the manager or 204b has to ask me how to do something or about Postal regulations. I never thought the day would come when a clerk actually had to instruct management.
