I read that Lance Armstrong settled with the government and will pay $5M. Why don't they try to claw back management bonuses, too?

alaska mailman /m98888 It had something to do with the tornado in Kentucky. That's where all these Amazon packages came from. I had 10 more today. The only thing in writing is the text on the scanner that we got yesterday that says to deliver all Amazon packages.

Ohiomailman- Your supervisor did not want to deal with it or didn't know how to deal with it. Should have brought them back and left on supervisors desk. If told to deliver them I would want that order in writing because postage has not been paid by Amazon

oops I messed up (continued) Management said that Amazon paid us to deliver these packages. I don't know if this is going to be a regular thing or if this was just for today.

Anyone else delivering Amazon's packages. Today we delivered packages with the Amazon bar codes. Since these bar codes are invalid, we were told to deliver them without scanning them. Manag

/m98875 I wear personal coat and hat to work. All winter long I wear a long sleeve turtleneck under short sleeve shirt. I wear my own (not postal) winter hat when it's real cold. Additionally, I wear ski pants with bib when it's cold. Been doing it for 15 years. If no one says anything, it must be ok. I will wear whatever I need to stay warm. Being an ex winter backpacker/climber/camper I dress to stay outside. The trick with this job is to dress warmly so you aren't running the route to stay warm ,thus finishing early. I stroll at the same speed if it's 10 degrees or 80 degrees.

  I always wear uniform stuff at work any time I can. Not because of any rule but because I'd rather have wear and tear happen to that crap than my own clothes.

You are so right. Some p.o. and supe don't even care. Then their are the others. When I go load my truck, because clerks aren't done with packages, I'll grab my coat.

But when getting to drive to the rt, I'll have my postal issued coat.

Sometimes if we have a meeting to kill time, when finished, I'll load up my truck with my coat and come back in.

As long as I have the postal coat on on the rt. That is important.

I know you want the rule, which I assume is that while on duty you have to wear the uniform. However, it seems you see rules don't really mean much until some manager decides they do. And even then they might only apply to some employees. If you are being held to a different standard, start taking notes. Remember, rural carriers and clerks have rules, too, even if they are not as strict for some crafts.

Your time is not subject to uniform rules. So wearing your personal coat until you clock on would definitely not be an issue. I know a clerk who would show up in her bar ho clothes early in the morning and change in the bathroom. If you show up in drag, however, I don't know if they have to let you use a room to change into work clothes.

Since you are asking, there must be a reason. I would encourage you to put your personal coat in your locker before you clock in.

Does the uniform code say anything about this?
I wear my personal coat to work. Then when leaving to go on my rt I wear the postal coat. If in the office and I have to go outside to say load my truck, I may put my personal on for the 2 min trip.

I have used a sweater inside the office If I get cold. Are these a violation and why?

You have seen it all. Some have no postal shoes on, wear clothing of color that extends beyond the short sleeves. Etc. Ext.

So at least I do change when going to drive my truck to my rt.

/m98873 ,/m98872 thank you. I was confused because I always equated steps to years of service. Even though once you max out steps you keep gaining years. .
