You get your second uniform allowance on the year anniversary of your first. There's not another probationary period but it will be 90-120 days after your break. I am curious about the insurance as well. If you find an answer please post it here.

Just got the new scanners today. No standup talk, just take them to the street. Went up to deliver a certified letter and the stylus didn't work on the scanner. I felt like an idiot when the customer gave the scanner back with no signature. Called the PO,"oh yeah, that app doesn't work right now". Thanks for the support USPS.

/m4552 Mgt can require him to have on "green tag" shoes, postal approved shoes, if he gets a uniform allowance. Not wearing approved footwear could be called "failure to work safely". Given the weather, couldn't he wear postal approved galoshes or rubbers over his shoes? At least the outermost layer would be postal. Your husband should talk to his steward.

Do CCA's have to be in full uniform? My husband has been wearing regular tennis shoes this whole year because his black shoes got worn out and haven't had a chance to replace them(low on funds). His boss yelled at him yesterday(Wed) and told him that he needs to have them by Friday. Let's be realistic... first off he came into work on that Wed at 7:30am and didn't get home until 7pm, today is Thurs and he went in at 8 even though he was really scheduled at 10:30am. And when I talked to him it looks like he won't be home until after 7pm again. So how is he suppose to buy these black shoes if he can't even get off in time for him to buy some. Not only that he told him again today that he has to have them by tomorrow. So my husband asked him for a voucher so that he can go to the store to buy them and he just walked away. In the past his old boss ordered his things for him. I've been searching for answers and reading and I just can't seem to find any answers.

I was talking to a regular and he told me that I could apply for example a federal job at a Hospital and I would get hired before a non federal employee and keep the pay rate I'm already making. Is this true or false?

I have two questions for you all.
I'm a CCA nearing the completion of my first year.
1. After my 5 day break will I serve another 90 day probation period. In which case would I not get a second uniform allowance until after that?
2. Is anyone familiar with the health insurance offered to ccas after the first year, I've tried to research it but mostly all I get is the plans for regular carriers. I am wondering if it is decent and also was wondering if it would cover my mother as I am caregiver for her, she is disabled.

USPS Mommy- Why do you deserve a raise if you are not in the union? You may not like the raise but if the union was not fighting their would be no raise period. You think the P.O. would just give raises because their such wonderful human beings. If they had their way CCAs would be making $10 an hour with no benefits.

/m4544 congratulations on becoming a regular. Now listen to the old timers. Do the route everyday like you are being inspected. No shortcuts, no skipping breaks or lunch. In other words do it by the book. It takes longer but your body will love you for it. YOU will last longer. Work safely at a pace you are comfortable with and don't let mgt push you to go faster. When they walk you ignore them because they will try to set the pace by walking ahead of you and you will strive to catch up to them. That's what they want. When they get you to chase them on the route then they say "demonstrated performance". You just showed them how fast you can run and now you will have to run the rest of your career. Walk today and you can walk till you retire. This has been a public service announcement.

I have not insulted anyone and you just insulted me. No further comment, except that becoming a regular is like hitting the lottery. Once you do, why be so greedy?

"It's not that bad" yeah ok John.

Losing a quarter of a million dollars over the course of 12 years isn't that bad.

Are you high or just naturally stupid?

Gp: no. The 0.60 answer was to the question of the difference between carrier and carrier technician pay on the same level.

If you are a cca and you were never a TE before that you are making $15.68 right now. If you were converted next pay period you would go up to $17.53 (step a). These numbers go up in November for everyone and in 46 weeks you would go up to whatever step b is at that time. It's not that bad.

So if we only get a .60 raise when we become career the benefits must be great right?
