hidden truth

if manager supervisor calls and leaves a hostile message on your voice mail, is the fact that they voluntarily left the message consent?
The public needs to hear the disrespect that these people show the employees.

"All 50 States allow you to record a phone call if you know the other party is doing the same." No they don't. /m4637.

/m4637 You aren't allowed to call someone on their private number and assume they are recording you and therefore do the same. You ARE allowed to record a phone call when the other party has let you know they are doing the same, some even let you know they are doing it for quality assurance. The USPS has made employees aware that phone calls are recorded and that is sufficient notice to allow you to do the same. You aren't allowed to distribute the recording in any case without permission from the other party but you are allowed to provide it in a legal or workplace investigation. Two party rule applies to private non work related communications where you have to let the other individual know that you intend to record the phone call. The USPS, DOL, OWCP, etc.. Are all federal agencies and do not fall under the 'two party' consent law.

postman 99 Deliver mail and leave the law to others. In 12 states—California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Washington—all parties involved need to consent before one of them can record the conversation. There are some exceptions to the two-party consent rules.

/m4635 /m4634 Apps to record a phone call on your phone are super cheap. All 50 States allow you to record a phone call if you know the other party is doing the same. Always fire it up when speaking in any way with postal management, OWCP, DOL, etc...

Just a guess. Your PM wants to keep SL usage down. If you call in directly there may be some way to cover it up or charge it to something else. If the 800 number is used there is no way to cover it up.

I'm curious why would a PM push to not utilize the #800 call in number when SL is unplanned?
99.9% of the time I get preapproved SL (mostly doc appts). But had two incidents this past month that I needed SL quickly.
One I was working and took ill at work. The second I was at doc appt. before work and doc insisted on test/lab work immediately that required me my missing work.
I'm not concerned about using SL, but I found it odd that PM made a big point of telling me I did not need to call in #800 on first incident. On the second incident, I called #800 and as a curtesy called PM. PM again made a point to tell me I did NOT need to call #800. When I said I had already, PM seemed disappointed. Any thoughts why PM prefers not for me use the #800?

/m4629... I'm interested in the PM's reason listed on every PS3971 for disapproval. Union should be too and it may need to be escalated.

513.342 Approval or Disapproval
The supervisor is responsible for approving or disapproving requests for sick leave by signing PS Form 3971, a copy of which is given to the employee. If a supervisor does not approve a request for leave as submitted, the Disapproved block on the PS Form 3971 is checked and the reason(s) given, in writing, in the space provided. When a request is disapproved, the granting of any alternate type of leave, if any, must be noted along with the reason for the disapproval. AWOL determinations must be similarly noted.

Danville, ky victim. It's all about her bonus. Less sick leave used, more bonus for her.

Accessing Narrowcast via web browser? I received the emails but it's saved on a machine that is not easily accessible this weekend. How would I find the latest revenue and operating expense numbers via web browser? Thank you.

Is there anyone who can Stop Postmaster in Danville, Ky to stop changing employees sick leave to annual leave? Shes been doing this for years and continues to do this up to this week. She does this in retaliation to almost all employees. Union is no help.

I think they meant /m4624, to refer to your original message.

There are many things to consider about retirement. First of course is money. Can you afford it? Only you know the answer to that. Second, what are your going to do to fill in the time you would be working or traveling to and from work. You may want to consider taking one of those retirement seminar classes for which ever retirement system you are in. Google retirement for CSRS or FERS. They cost some money but they may be worth it. It was for me. It would be best to take the courses well before retirement so you can take advantage of what you learned before it is too late. Whatever you choose enjoy your retirement. You earned it. I am in my 10th year of retirement. I never looked back. It was a great career. Pay and benefits are nearly unbeatable.

How much worse is it going to get going forward. I can retire now with 34 + years. Any advise.

Question about spot awards. Who gets them and how much. In OHV. Pennies and no recognition. I had to seriously sign my own award today.

/m4619 They definitely need to be dragged before congress to testify. Hopefully many of us here will be brave enough to step up when Congress asks for testimonies.
