EMPLOYEE IDEAS??
Wow! Amazing how you can re-wrap and ole idea and people suck it in like candy. Many a good idea from employee’s went into the supervisors pocket book while the person who had the idea got a box of donuts or a pen, while the supervisor got a check! Better yet- if the idea didn’t warrant a certain possible monetary compensation it was deemed insufficient and sent back with a letter to the creator. Our upper Mismanagement is in ruins, why would you want ideas when you are trying to re-invent the wheel everyday? Good question now let’s put that square peg into that round hole there and we got ourselves a new mis- manager! If you want a real good idea- DROP THAT BULLSHIT PAY FOR NO PERFORMANCE BONUS FOR STARTERS. Next get rid of these people who have no idea of delivery operations / wait that would mean they would have to get rid of whole districts around the country because they are MICRO-MISMANAGED FROM AFAR! Riddle me this: why is it in times of very bad weather that only essential personnel has to report and the district closed down? They must not be essential-go figure! Have a great day….

HERE'S ANOTHER REASON USPS IS LOSING MORE MONEY.

ePacket

In 2011, the U.S. Postal Service made special agreements with the national postal carriers of China and Hong Kong (and subsequently South Korea and Singapore) to allow tracking-enabled packages not exceeding 36” or weighing over 4.4 pounds to be sent to the U.S. for extremely low rates. They called this shipping option the ePacket, and the rates are so low that it's cheaper to ship small parcels from China to an American city than it is to send that same parcel domestically. As Amazon’s Vice President of Global Policy Paul Misener pointed out:

“The cost to ship a one-pound package from South Carolina to New York City would run nearly $6; from Beijing to NYC: $3.66.”

What are the proper delivery procedures for the AMAZON TEAM LIFT PARCELS?? Some of these parcels are very heavy and difficult to handle and load? You may get help to load it in your car before you leave the Post Office but when you get to delivery address there is usually no help to unload it much less get it to the front door. I think I have strained a muscle in my back. What are carriers suppose to do? Please help!

WE do things that are unsafe because the Parcels are so many and larger than ever and management does not care as long as you bust your butt
 and require no second trips and lucky enough not to have any accidents. Personally I'm not working in the DARK! Management doesn't care about anyone or anything but their stupid numbers and how big their Bonuses are!

Since our office receives huge sized and huge volumes of parcels from AMAZON, FEDEX and UPS we Rural Carriers are not offered any help and cursed for needing 2nd trips. We have been strapping parcels down on our roofs for months!!!
WHY IS THIS RIDICULOUS UNSAFE WAY OF DELIVERY BEING IGNORED AND PROMOTED BY MANAGEMENT?? BONUSES? WE NEED A MANAGEMENT THAT UNDERSTANDS WE ARE NOT FINANCIALLY EQUIPPED OR PAID TO DELIVER HUGE SIZED, AND HUGE VOLUMES OF F- ING PARCELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT WOULD ALLOW US TO DO ARE JOBS SAFELY AND PROFESSIONALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just voicing my concerns that we need to update the delivery rules or USPS needs to provide box trucks to deliver the huge or the longer than your vehicle, parcels. We have no LLV's or trucks at our office. Our office has a loading dock, and I understand unless your office has a loading dock you don't receive Amazon or FedEx parcels. This situation needs to be addressed. Management and Carriers want parcels delivered but isn't there a more reasonable solution? Why as a Rural Carrier does the burden and expense fall totally on me or face consequences?

  The additional mileage associated with the delivery of parcels on the first trip needs to be addressed. The mail boxes are no longer accommodating the regular parcels we deliver and a lot of the homes are not near the mail box. I'm saying on a 60 mile evaluated route, pre- Amazon and last mile delivery, averaged 30 to 40 parcels per day and maybe adding 2 to 5 more miles a day. Now with Amazon and last mile delivery the same route is averaging many times that, up to 100 or more parcels on some days and Rural Carriers are adding many more additional miles and footsteps per day. Should not all Rural Carriers be required to be compensated for all miles driven? We have the scanners and you know how many miles we are driving per day. Also scanner is fast becoming a more distracting device with all the additional alerts, messages, tasks involved. The burdens and stresses in this job are becoming overwhelming!

We as a craft need to keep up with these changes, to get compensated for all expenses. If we as a craft do not claim what is ours, management will surely find a way to spend it in a way that does not benefit the Rural Craft. Also the safety issue involving parcels blocking the windows obstructing the view of a carriers surroundings and other traffic is being ignored!
Please help us!

It is 1/2 now Rivkah. I have no advice on getting you paid now Terry. You might still want to consider writing the actual additional miles for parcels on your trip sheet though. You never now what might come of this issue down the road and if they possibly pay it retroactively to those who took the time to document it you might get something out of it. Don't hold you breath though!

Have you talked to your steward? I was a rural carrier a looong time ago. I thought it was 1/4 mile. That's something that should be negotiated in the next contract with the huge increase in parcels.

I'm saying my official route mileage is 72 miles in a rural area. Since the parcel numbers are way up i average 50 additional miles because of the half mile to each house. Why is this cost coming directly out of my pocket? I'm required to drive my personal car the additional mileage from the box to the house to complete deliver so why am I not required to get compensated for this required extra expense???

@Terry Are you deviating due to road construction? If so you are supposed to get paid for the extra mileage. Just write the amount of miles deviated on your trip sheet daily. It wouldn't hurt to explain why to your Supervisor or PM too.

I know rural carriers are required to go up to a 1/2 mile to deliver but why are carriers not required to get paid for all the extra miles driven? How can you require carriers to drive extra miles without reimbursing them for expenses?
