Compression of Tour 1 Starting in January 2015

USPS Moving Ahead with Tour Changes…

The Plant Managers of Carol Stream and Palatine have informed us they were given the go-ahead on 10-23-14 to proceed with plans to realign tours based on the elimination of most overnight service for First Class Mail. USPS put these changes on hold for the last year but are now moving forward with plans to change mail processing from a tour l/tour 3 window to a tour 2/tour 3 window. The plan is to start letter automation at 0800 and start tour 3 at 1600. Tour 1 Automation will run only a few machines which will probably be staffed by PSE Clerks. PSEs will probably have two days off after the tour changes are made. Palatine will post more Manual bids for IPP and Low Costs #1 and #3. Carol Stream Plant Mgr. Mike Kotula said he will be ready to discuss the specifics of the changes later in November and Palatine Plant Manager Quintin Mayberry said he will meet with us in late November to discuss Palatine changes.

Palatine Realignment Meeting on 11-3-14

We met on 11-3-14 with In-Plant Support Manager Esther Smith and In-Plant Support Specialist Gail Towner. Present for the Union were myself, VP Elerby. and 600 CCD Lloyd. The staffing plans they gave us for Automation show tour 2 going from 16 bids at 0500 to 100 bids starting at 0800, and tour 3 going from 41 bids at 1300 to 100 bids starting at 1600. Tour 1 Automation will be staffed by PSEs and go from 118 Bids to 0. Their staffing plan was based on a data fed into a program called RPG scheduler. The matrix we were given has no Sunday Monday, no Tuesday/Wednesday, and no Thursday/Friday bids, which means employees with those NS days will lose their bids. It seem that every time management makes major changes they compound the disruption by changing the NS days. The 2010 changes for the AMP eliminated SIS bids and added S/M bids and now in 2014 they are eliminating S/M and adding more S/S bids.

 

 

AFSM Changes ...

In the AFSM they are also changing S/M bids back to S/S and hocking more people out of bids. There will still be three tours in AFSM at starting times of 0700 on tour 2, 1400 on tour 3, and 2230 on tour 1. Tour 2 will have six bids, an increase of one, tour 3 will remain the same with six bids, and tour 1 will go from eight (8) bids to four (4).

 

 

Manual Bid Changes

Manual Letters and Flats now start on tour 1 at 2130 but will move to tour 3 with a 1700 start. They did not provide staffing plans for the manual bids so we don't know how many or what NS days will be posted. No time changes were given for Low Cost or IPP bids and we have no bids yet in Priority. They said Low Cost bids will be posted on tour 2 but did not say how many or with what schedules. Tour 2 Manual is the only section which still has Clerks with retreat rights. No changes were discussed for the General Expediters, Postage Due, Express Mail or the FSS. Tour 1 is being wiped out based on the elimination of overnight service.

 

 

This is a National Plan

The "Realignment" deals with three parts, changing service standards to end overnight and add a day for most first class mail, closing 82 more plants, and changing times and tours for mail processing. The only way this can be stopped is if Congress stops the changes being made to service standards. 50 U.S. Senators and 160 U.S. Representatives in Congress have signed a letter against the changes but no postal legislation has been passed due to Congressional gridlock. The results of the midterm election will impact us one way or the other and we hope things don't get worse for us in 2015. The four postal unions are working together to hold a National Day of Action on November 14th from 12 noon to 4 pm at the Carol Stream P&DC. I want to thank Palatine NPMHU Branch President Morris for mentioning the Day of Action in her floor letter. The APWU and NPMHU have the most to lose if 82 more plants close and take 15,000 of our jobs away. Carriers support the Day of Action and we support them in the fight to preserve six day delivery.

Public vs Private sector. Be it, public employees has longevity and better benefits than the private sector. One has to realize public sector job are mostly non profiting. Can anyone think of any government job that is making money or can survive with the ignorance of cost that would bankrupt a private sector business. Anyone know of any private sector who can carry a deficit of $7.5 billion dollars?
Face it folks, USPS employees are part of the Social welfare program.

Many postal services in foreign countries are looking for ways to privatize. Netherlands, the first country to do so has had no adverse impact to their mail in doing so. Japan and Korea, the largest in volume received at ISC are pushing for it. Royal Mail are pushing for it too. Expanding is not exactly the correct word. Japan postal has some banking involve and Korea wants to copy it. As we all know, our Congress can't even agree to anything will make it tough to even survive. P.O going into banking?
I find it even funny the P.O wants to deliver grocery. Have you seen the commercial recently about Sunday delivery? Cut Saturday delivery and have it on Sunday? What is this, Bait and Switch?

Well its time to vote America and for postal employees it's time to make sure your Congressman has your back. Postal reform will come the question is in what form. Will we contract out our juicey parts and end up back as part of the federal budget? Will we be allowed to expand like many postal units in the world and add income and services? You have a vote and voice in this don't waste it. The job you save may be your own.

Well, the old communist/ socialist government in China is still restricting full democracy of Hong Kong residents. We can't even say China is fully Communism or Socialist, probably more authoritarianism. The government want to prosper in capitalism but restrict your liberty and freedom. True socialism and communism won't work because it requires sacrifices and if you have any capitalist ambition and democracy, you are controlled, detained or arrested. The massive pro-democracy of Hong Kong is an example.
The socialist condition of the Latin/ central American countries has many expatriates sending remittance back to help support their remaining families. By this support, it shown they rather have capitalism rather then socialism. So..to spew this 99% socialism for all is ridiculous!

excessed: their types never answers any questions. They are enforcers and backups of Ernie's crew whose only comments are "everybody is whining". They don't answer any of the facts. I've been on their case for years and they stay by their routines, censorship!
They or their parents come to America to escape the socialist/ Dictatorship government and then when they are here, everything back home was better? What idiots!
I say, go back please! No hate, just confirming their love of their past.

Thar she blows again, the old owl lady. Your god? Do socialists even believe in God? Maybe we can start a national socialist workers party to make her happy. Like the one Germany did. She cant answer a question, just tell you how stupid you are and how you dont understand. She must be one of the elite 1%. Dictators can be voted in. Happens all the time. She is ignorant. Bye Felicia. Speak the truth, mail handler Isc. For real.
