/m1159..
It's just getting started. Look for the 6 hr offices to be downgraded to a 4hr office. Close many of the 2 & 4 offices. They want the PO privatized. With staples, walmart, VPO's it's already started.

The Union is fighting for our rights and the Post Office instantly starts to side step and think of other ways of screwing workers out of money. They are forcing career full time career employees to take over offices they don't want. Is this another ploy to piss off and hopefully push the high paying employees out ? They will post jobs and refill new or empty spots with low paying employees that have no idea what they are doing. The post office (Management) is all about stirring the pot to see who sticks around to be screwed over again and again.

/m1158, except that's not what the Union wanted. Isn't that right?

Too bad there's no clear and easy way to put the word out about the Union's doublespeak. The PO screwed up. The APWU wanted this baby, well -- it's theirs now.

/m1157.. You are right. The PO doesn't care. Never has never will. It sad that they didn't somehow grandfather you, where if you pass the test, you atleast have a job somewhere. Not right someone with zero experience gets the job because of a higher test score. (Who may decide not to stay anyway)

HI. I have been reading all of these post and I am amazed how I can relate to every post. I was hired as a PMR in 2010 and of course took the test and changed to PSE 2 years ago. As I read through the 1154 post Im thinking about a Strike. Why do we go to work and allow this to happen. I dont know how many US states we represent here but . We really need to stop the post office and take a stand. What the saying "The mail must go out""" blah blah blah.. Well what is all PMR and PSEs dont show up.. ??

/m1153 Yes, I suppose there is always hope, but it looks bleak. I keep looking at my emails waiting for a post telling us whether we get an interview or not. Is that how we find out? I read where people have taken the test but nothing after that. Just curious?

I can see it doesn't look good, but remember: it's not over yet.

/m1150 Dana, read your post with much sadness and anger. I don't have a special needs child, but I have a veteran who is one of my customers who got wind of this opportunity. She took the test today. I am sure that my days are numbered too. Despite that nice letter from HR last week that told us all how much they wanted to keep us in our offices because of our experience. I keep thinking of the thousands of sad stories out there because of this. Good luck to everyone! We are going to need it.

Dana, I really do feel for you. I have a special needs child too. I am a PMR too and I am afraid of the same thing. It just isn't fair to us. The union is causing so much trouble for all of us. So many good employees are losing their jobs that they have worked so hard to have. They ask us if we want to run the Post Office and now our jobs are being taken away from us.

I have been a PMR for 24 years in a Mississippi town I grew up in. I am losing my job to a veteran. I have a disabled child and the 4 hr ad day job was going to finally be perfect for me. I am angry and heartbroken for my community.

I am not happy with having to change to a PSE. I wouldn't have minded it if they would have just slide all PMR's over. Now we have to reapply and take the test. Well I had 2 days notice on when I had to take the test. So I went and took it yesterday, I didn't have much practice. The first 3 sections were fine, but the last one which was memory I didn't do as well. My score is ok but not good enough to get an interview for it. I have no problem doing the work in my office. But now its a very good chance that I am going to lose my job to someone off the street that they are going to have to retrain. The whole thing doesn't make sense to me. Why remove good employees from their jobs. I know its not just PMR's that this is happening to, its not fair to any of us.

USPSmommy..This was filed over 2 years ago and they continued to hire PMR's. We've been talking about it on this forum ever since. I'm sorry that THEY did this to you. With the "they" being MANAGEMENT.


/m648...click here..I talked about it then. And it's true
/m698...I guess I called that one right. Time to buy a lottery ticket.
/m694...You knew it might be coming.. Can't blame the APWU
/m598...Again.. same news

I need to help some other PMRs prepare for the PSE test and I threw away all my info after I took the test. Any links you would recommend?

/m1145 As far as I know if you fail the assessment you are ineligible for the PSE test. However, if you were sent an invite for the test take it
