Unions hate to tell people that they're going to be excessed until they know for sure who and when. Read union boards, and go to meetings because you'll get news as it happens. Stewards don't want to alarm anyone, mgt doesn't mind.

I was told by my supervisor it's going to get really bad next year. How many people here getting excessed? No one is even talking about it. She said this is just the first round. When the tours change, we are going to get more screwed.Where are we supposed to go? The steward here said he doesn't know anything about this but the supervisor showed me the charts. She said the union was notified. They said they werent. Where can i find a safe place to go?

Oakland-22 mail handlers and 55 clerks
San Fran-10 mh and 102 clk
San Jose-2 mh and 25 clk
North Bay-15 mh and 31 clk
LA-50 mh and 162 clk
Hawaii- 6mh and 28 clk

/m5707 First I heard of that in my 38 PO years. I'd have to read your transfer letter, see if it says you have the bid, or are pending qualification.

Off the clock: You should get 1 hour for each 16 memory items. If you pass, you get the bid and later get paid that OT amount. You must daily make out paper time card 1260, and also record your time on a training sheet. If you flunk, back to previous bid you normally go. Where this is a transfer, that stuff may not happen; for better or worse, you may never leave where you report. They might just have you study every day during your shift, and the exam might be given by your PM which means you probably won't be flunked.

As a guy who's learned 4 schemes, it's easier if you get your own copy of the scheme. Most places will turn a blind eye, just don't insist. I found it easier to then make flash cards as study aides.

I still do not understand if you were assigned the scheme or bid on it.

if assigned then on the clock.

what happened Postalvet was that I put in for reassignment and wasn't told the new office until two days before I was to be released. Didn't have much time to go for scheme training before reporting for a 40 hour position. have been a PTF for many years and didn't know what I didn't know.

Django /m5702 - there is no such thing as "excused" in the post office. If there is, please cite a reference. Doctors' notes are do not automatically provide protection for discipline for failure to maintain a regular schedule. Only FMLA does that.

/m5694 You didn't say if you told them Monday you'd be out Tuesday. Or if you called again on Tuesday. First case counts one unscheduled, second case would be another.

The next call for Wednesday on is another bang. So you certainly don't have only 1, and you might have as many as 3. Could have been worse; you could have called in each day and got 7 or 8 strikes. Next time you're that ill, call in for a week so it's just one unscheduled bad mark. If you feel better, you could return early and be a hero.
