/m97806 It is managements responsibility to track leave and leave requests. They approved the requests and can't later deny it. That statement regarding insufficient annual is on there for a reason and no manager has the authority to overide it. You need to talk to your steward and make him understand that you have an approved 3971 and it's his responsibility to fight for your rights. I'd ask your steward point blank when did the NALC decide it was ok for management to start denying appoved leave requests.

That should be a super easy win for any competent steward.

On the 1-6 loading of scanned parcels. This waste of time will be worsened if the carrier is then expected to use the scanner to identify the next parcel. If there is an "other" pile, it would probably be the one least accessible. Also, there still are parcels with no scan. If they made me use the scanner to load the vehicle, I likely will be too dumb to know what to do without a scan.

I don't trust those llvs. Youtube has some hair raising runaway/rollaway llv videos. The concept is always take your keys no matter what or how long your butt is off the seat. Personally, Id hate to run over a kid when only it would of took a second to shut the vehicle off. I Don't trust llvs and I never will.

/m97815 Yeah, the example they gave was a carrier even standing in the llv doorway (not outside the llv) with key chain attached to him/her won't do.

/m97809 Why wouldn't it be true Vicodin? We were told the same that even those driving Uplanders and vans cannot have the engine running with the defroster working to help clear ice and snow despite having the parking brake engaged and the transmission in park. It might seem a little extreme for those vehicles but for the increasingly unreliable LLVs, most with parking brakes that barely hold the vehicle, I wouldn't have it any other way. We were told you can be instantly removed from the clock, it's that serious around my area.

As a personal example when my safety was put at risk:

I used to be a utility carrier and one of my regulars always started his LLV while standing outside as he ran through the check list. He always held onto the steering wheel so I never thought twice about his actions until the day I ended up walking behind him while he put the truck in reverse to check the backup lights. That day I was at the back of the line clocking in and his truck was already running when I starting passing behind it. As soon as I saw the reverse lights illuminate it hit me like a brick...the safety issue, not the LLV! :-) The idiot was again standing outside with his foot on the brake wearing wet shoes. This guy weighed something like 275# so there was no way he could quickly hop up into the truck if his foot had slipped. Not to mention that most of the brake pedal pads are worn smooth on the right side/corner and his shoe tread was probably worn down as well. I almost said something to him but knew it wouldn't make any difference. I fully support this directive as does our union.

Scan each packages while loading? Ok that'll wear out my battery even sooner ensuring a trip to the office for a new one. Great Christmas load planning.

/m97807 Ohiomailman - WOW, that is going to save so much time and energy, what with all PKGs being the same shape, size, and weight so the will always fit so neatly. Let me see, do you scan them 1 at time as you load or all at once before loading? I can see some of the numbers being stacked high while others are almost empty, where do you put your letters, flats, advos, etc...

And it all is suppose to take no more extra time.

Fledgling /m97802 I found out today what the numbers are for. We're going to have to scan our parcels before putting them in the LLV. The scanner will tell us what numbered area of the LLV to place the parcel.

So elm says "ELM 512.43 Insufficient Leave Balance
If the leave is approved and the employee has an insufficient leave balance, it is changed to LWOP when the employee’s pay is processed."

If carrier has annual approved beginning of year for 1 week in December but only has 20 hours AL available, shouldn't the other 20 be automatically LWOP? Management says LWOP has to be approved by them and they will not approve it. I read it to say it's already LWOP irregardless. I'm being told union AND mngmnt are both correct in this instance so carrier has to cancel part of approved leave. I'm like wwwwhaaaatttt? Any ideas on how to greive, fight this? Is carrier SOL?

/m97804 Yeah, that and what I mentioned earlier. Chances are though, mgmt. is going to make you grieve it.
  Talk with your steward.

/m97803 Thanks a bunch ! found it, If I'm reading this correctly, I should not have to work? My annual leave follows my NS day.. from the JCAM it says, "Normally, employees, including employees on the Overtime Desired List, who have scheduled annual leave, including incidental annual leave, immediately preceding and/or following non-scheduled days will not be required to work overtime on the non-scheduled days. The intent of the parties is to allow employees to make advance plans for non-scheduled days. It is not the intent of the parties to create a means to circumvent the scheduling provisions of Article 8."
