/m9463 This has been answered by National many times but they haven't done a great job getting the word out. PTF's will be able to stay PTFs. They can transfer to make regular or just stay a PTF. I can say I have heard it personally from Fred Rolando and Brian Renfroe.

Hi, I'm a CCA who has just finished his 90 day probationary period. I'm into my career now about 3 1/2 weeks. I was able to twist managements arm to let me stay on the clock as trg. ring and purchase my uniforms today. I have a question about vacant boxes. When I place a 10 day in-box hold on the FC mail, after the 10 days has passed, then what do I do? take it back, look for a forward if there is one and then toss in to CFS. Or do I fill out a Moved Left No Address card and put it....where? And what do i write on the mail before I put it wherever it is supposed to go? My route is an "auxiliary" route and has 1450 +- boxes. Lots of vacant ones I guess, because the mail is STUFFED into some of the boxes. Thank you for any help, and I'll watch for an answer!>>>>>>>>>>

I hear this from many different Letter Carriers. I believe I am going to get myself a hour and date booklet of some sort. Any experienced Carriers know where or what I can do to keep up with my hours?

It's more than scary to see how the supervisors and managers in this office lie and cheat and are so dishonest. One supervisor told me that a conversation he had in front of 5 people "never happened". He couldn't remember standing there 5 minutes before and saying what he said. Bold face lie and it didn't matter that he knew that we knew he was lying. What can you do if these are the people in charge and they don't have the workers best interest at heart in the least? What drives a human being to lower themselves to these standards just to make the numbers? They really believe the computer generated numbers and they think that taking someone off the clock while they are still working is the right thing to do because the computer said they should have been off. I have witnessed these people sitting on their butts calling this hardworking carrier names and planning to write statements to back up the write up that they had not yet given him because they had to wait to come up with something for the write up, while he was on the dock loading 7 trays of flats and 10 times the parcels. I watched this group of supervisors sit on their asses and work themselves into a frenzy talking like this to attack this poor guy that had given them a little attitude because he had just cased 7 trays of flats and they asked him why it was taking him so long to leave. I can see that the people that they pick to do that job must have to have a screw missing. They are bullies, liars, cheats and just plain clueless regarding the carriers and what the carriers go through outside of the climate controlled office. They learn from each other but I could never copy this behavior that I have witnessed from this rogue bunch under any circumstance. I just have to hope that there is an afterlife and they will be held accountable by the higher power when their time comes or Karma.

Frustrated- This question has been asked before and nobody can get an answer. Most think the P.O. will have PTFs sign off on not becoming regular if they want to remain in current office. Then PTF will be agreeing to stay a PTF until a route opens up no matter how long that takes. PTFs may be given the option of transferring to a different office to become regular

/m9460 Keep applying. The person hiring just wants a body. It would be a bigger deal if you were interviewing and said you did not know whether or not you wanted the job. People turn down jobs and interviews all the time. It is fixin' to get hot in TX. CCA new hires will drop like flies.

Hello guys:

I've been applying for both RCA and CCA for different states. I'm from Puerto Rico but I recently move to Texas and unfortunately because of my change of home I couldn't make it to some of the interviews I had scheduled so I withdrew the applications, I have a lot of withdrawn applications and I'm wondering if this may affect my future applications. Hope somebody can help.

lp1980- Not what you want to hear but if you have no proof of death threat you have no case. You can keep appealing but you will not win.

I need help and I hope someone out there can help me. Last March I received a death threat my route. A package was stolen and guy claimed that I stole it. It must have been something illegal in it. I immediately reported it to the manager who called the postal inspectors but they did not do anything. I later found out that the dea shut the address down because of illegal activities going on there. I went out on stress leave for about 3 months because they never found the guy who did it. I was under doctor care even filled out a ca 1 that management never turned in I had to send it to the department of labor. When the department of labor did their investigation they said that he didn't directly threatened to kill you to leave me stress and emotionally damaged. So I was never payed while I was out. They won't tell me if they investigated the guy or went of the word of management and postal inspector. We all know they will lie to cover themselves. So they say I couldn't get paid for that time and they took all my annual leave for being out even though I was under doctors care and even saw a shrink because it is a dangerous job and they never found him. I don't think I can sue them because I don't have proof he threatened me even though the Feds shut the address down but I can keep appealing and I'm always getting denied payment. I would really appreciate it if someone can help me with this matter.

Okay, so it appears that the local policy is one year,than you need to have a refresher course, also verified with one of the two driver instructors and said 1 year also. So, I don't have a grievance because management only requested 2 ton qualified drivers. I will live to fight another day.

PTF has first dibs on vacant route, the 1 to 4 or 1 to 6 transfer only applies to FTR's
