/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.

Django /m5695 - that is incorrect: doctors' notes do not protect you from discipline.
