The least amount is $8 and goes up to around $50 or $60 a pay period, depending on how much your local union wanted to suck out of you. At the convention they voted on CCAs paying less since they earn less, but it didn't pass.

Does anyone know how much the union takes out per pay period?
CCA 702

You don't ask for days off. You won't get them. U just call in sick and use your leave. Always, always say you were sick or not feeling well. It's an atoumated service so u can use leave without talking to any supervisors. If they call don't answer. Just show up the next day and if they ask. You weren't feeling well. They can't do anything unless you are out more than 3 days. Then you will need a doctors note.

I called in once to spend a day with family visiting from out of town and told them I needed a personal day. Lol. wrong thing to say. Management can hold a grudge. So be careful and feel out the situation.

On the other hand every time I've called in nothing happened. They just ask why you didn't show up. Remeber flu season is about to begin so now is the best chance to get away with anything.

"I felt like I was coming down with something and I didn't want to get everybody sick" "but I feel ok I'm ready to work. I hope it was a fluke."

Maybe something like that. I will be using a similar method next Saturday.

It's not like we get sick leave. So take advantage when you can.

/m3653 Talk to your steward

That's unfortunate. There is nothing you can do, but the union is working on something at the national level. In the meantime, get your steward to talk to management and demand an answer as to why this is happening.

as a cca since February is anyone else having trouble getting days off with annual leave. They keep denying days we put in even when we put the request in in advance?

/m3547 The union steward just said "Well, Sundays are new". He was only recently converted to regular and didn't know what a MOU was when I was talking to him... :\ I was told the union was weak around here in orientation. But thanks, I will plan on going on in every day I'm scheduled!

Is this usually how the USPS operates! I started applying for positions about a month ago, did not hear anything so I applied to about 5 post. Just received one response last week and now this week within the last 3 days ive received 4 more interview invites! Total of 5....Wow, I thought some vets or high scorers took all the positions. I guess next week I will be at the P O everyday! Haha

If I was told they would call me if they didn't need me on a Sunday after being scheduled, I wouldn't answer the phone and show up. Especially if I took it easy on Saturday night expecting to work. Go in get paid for a few hours... Unless you don't want to work

I'm aware city guy, thanks. I am doing it and tgat is my plan. When my time comes, on that beautiful glorious day, that hell freezes over, I will become a career employee and intend to do the the full 5% in the TSP.

I agree talk to the steward about this. If you are on the schedule you must come in and report for your two or four hours (deepening on the size of your office). They can call you and give you the option of not coming in, and let you call it off, but this supposed to be scheduled work. I would grieve this with a cease and desist.

/m3645 Have you talked to your steward about this practise??

/m3644 John....The money you put into retirement as a CCA can be rolled into the regulars TSP funds when you make regular. If you can afford it I would encourage you to put what you can into retirement now and get a nice start on your TSP. The returns on TSP are quite good.
