The issue is that it is happening on a daily basis. There is no requirement for a clerk or PM to have a driver's license.

I don't really see the issue with it. You are being compensated when you do it so why is it a problem? It's not like this type of thing happens on a weekly basis. There's no way that they are going to provide your office with a car to occasionally run the scanner to a different office. If your office has an LLV available and you have taken the training course to be qualified to drive it you could always ask to take it instead. If you haven't taken the course and get into an accident you could get yourself into hot water for doing so though.

It depends on your position. PM's are not protected by the unions.

Well, they did it to me many times. And how else can you get to training?

I know you can submit your travel in etravel. The problem is that management can not order a clerk or pm to use their personel vehicle to do postal business.

Yes, that is right. You can submit eTravel claim. Clerks or PMs use their own vehicle to go to training, travel from one office to another to work and also to take missent mail to the correct office and to download the scanner. We were told in a snow storm once when the mail delivery truck couldn't make it out to put the collection box mail in our vehicle and drive it to plant--same thing if someone missed the last scan--go back even at midnight (no lie) with whatever mail was in the box (even though it was probably collected but the scan was forgotten) and take the mail to the plant 20 miles away. I've seen it all. I submitted eTravel and time.
Sorry you have to put up with this still. I am happily retired.

You are entitled to submit an eTravel claim for the mileage to and fro said office to upload the scanner.

What is up with management wanting or insisting clerks or pms to take a scanner to alocal office to have it downloaded when the internet is out in their office. I thought pms and clerks didn't have to use their personal vehicle for postal business?

/m5616 you have to wait until the development is completed and the district address management team updates the data base.

Good day! We moved to a new home last March but our new address is still not in the USPS database therefore we still cannot receive mail/packages because it always say that our home address is invalid. We already went to our local post office as soon as we moved last March and they already assigned us a box and gave us a key yet not all of our mail are received and we can't order online because it tells us our address is invalid. We already changed address and received the mail confirmation on our previous address but not on the new one. Our new home address is 17102 Common Point Drive,Houston,TX 77090. I'm hoping someone can help me add our home address to the USPS database. I've been coming to our local post office since April and they always tell me that it will be taken care of and expect 2-3 weeks for it to show up in their database but it's already June and yet no progress at all. It's rather frustrating because we can't receive mail and we can't order online because our packages are just being returned to sender. Hoping for your kind response.Thank you!

If you are concerned about the posting of a supervisor job that has changed from it's current hours I suggest you contacting the mpoo for that district to see if this hours were approved to be changed like this and if the PM was given permission to be the opening person. A postmaster job duty/hours are normally the same as the retail window. A supervisor is the one opening and supervising the work floor.

managers are salaried employees and not subject to work hours rules.
