I agree, career jobs will end up being very limited.

Now that USPS has gotten a taste of paying low wages and no benefits, thinking career prospects will be available in the future are just pipe dreams.

Definitely not going back to full time offices....

zig.... I think it will be more like this..If it happens at all

1) Available PTF clerks in area not getting 40 hours will get the option first.
2) Exhausting all PTF's, then converting current PMR's to PSE's (still non-career)
3) Hire new PSE's (again, non-career)

None of the offices are going to go back to full time.

USPSmommy, most likely (IMO) it goes in this order, assuming 4 hour POs have to go back to full-time with full-time PMs:

1) Careers who are interested in the position will be hired there;
2) "Regular" PMRs at the station will be given a chance to apply for a career position there;
3) Other employees (including PMRs at other stations) will be given a shot at it;
4) External applicants will be able to apply for it (very unlikely to reach this stage).

I think in the worst case for PMRs, the main PMR will be retained to work (maybe) one day a week and when the career PM back on the job needs time off.

There is not enough PTF clerks to staff these offices. It's anybody's guess how they will do it if it happens. If it happens at all, my guess is they will try to convert PMR's to PSE's.

How do PMRs find out information about area conversions to career, if we want to reapply as PSEs or CCAs? Also, is it set in stone that once the Post Office loses the APWU lawsuit, that PMRs will just be put out on the street? One last question: what is happening with the rumor about 6 hour offices no longer being staffed by PMs, but by clerks?

CNC Clerk
Tell them to take it to Staples to mail or a VPO.....NO PROBLEM getting it mailed there... Reason why the APWU and everyone should support the unions "Stop Staples" quest.

Had an inspector come in yesterday. pulled out a little package with a customs form on it for overseas. I removed the instruction sheet, and saw it said paint sample. I told her that would not be mailable overseas because it is a hazardous material, and my fellow clerk directed her to the hazmat poster. Then she pulled out her credentials and told us she was an inspector and that we had passed.

Respect is earned, not deserved because someone has been through a lot so we should understand the anti-social behavior.

I am saying that a Postmaster who has been given a hard time is not entitled to give his/her employees a hard time.

So as long as the PM is the one who is wrong, it is right. but, if you are wrong too, it is wrong. Right?

They are not all wonderful, though, Ralph, and two wrongs still don't make a right.

Frankly, I have worked for 9 different PMs/OICs in 11 years {not counting working in other offices}. I would grade 2 as excellent, several as just clueless, and the rest as psycos.
