It's sad when people who are trying to boss others don't have the guts to stand up for themselves.

It's sad when a postmaster get away with miss use and abuse his position like the La Puente in Ca postmaster having supervisor work 16 hrs and pay 2 hrs OT.

When it comes to the postplan, they are like mini districts. If the APO PM has the ability and talent, then they will be able to handle it. If they do not then all of the offices are going to suffer.

/m5567 The APO has chosen to keep the carriers schedule as it was before my start time was changed. She's worried about them being out after 17:00.

/m5572 Hit the nail on the head.

/m5572 if that is the case what you posted it is one of the reasons for post plan. because everything like that should be run through the district HR and labor relations office to make sure the contract is followed.

•    Non‐traditionalfull‐time assignments will have no more than 1 hour lunch. Exception: in Post Offices (level
20 and below) where necessary to accommodate the conversion of PTFs to full‐time status, split shifts will be

I also have a 46K rural carrier in a 4 hour office who starts 45 minutes before the clerk does. They get paid 30 minutes weekly of withdraw time so the carrier grabs his CR flats and DPS and gets going. There is not enough time in the day to bump them later in most offices unless it's a small route.

The people who are discussing this topic are former Postmasters who are now clerks. In the past, if the PM felt it was necessary to change carrier start times, they could just do it. Now they are not managers of their office, the APO PM is, and that's who would be responsible for changing start times,and would have the authority to make changes. A clerk could not change carrier schedules.

/m5570 please explain a little better;
"Would not start time change need to go through the admin office now, since we are no longer EAS."

Regarding lunch time. Its my understanding that an NTFT is one hour BUT can be longer if in a smaller office to accommodate scheduling.

/m5565 can you change start times of routes. Possibly bump back. Not sure if you have rural carriers or HCR's. If HCR's, I am certain their start times can be changed.

My lunch time is still half an hour. As for working the mail while working the window, I take care of window first. If I miss a scan time, so what. When they complain about hotcase scan or box section scan or lobby scan and want to know why its late, I ask them how many people does the office have to work the mail, work the window, and answer the phone? When they say they don't know, I tell them one person does it all, and till I can clone myself, they can either live with the late scans or they can come help me for free off the clock.

Its taken about three weeks but they have cut back on emails, phone calls, and meetings. We are no longer EAS, and with a strong union, no reason to work under the heel of bad leadership.

I was given a 45 minute lunch with the change. I used to have a 1/2 hour lunch. They took 15 minutes off my start time and bumped my report to work time to match my window open time. It's such a pain. I have 2 rural routes in my office, one shows up 15 minutes after I start and the other 15 minutes later. It's hard to get mail over to them when I have people at the window right away. I'm just hanging in there so I can transfer in 18 months.
