Does anyone here work in a manual office? Because I started working in one the other day and I have questions! If this isn't the forum for me to ask about it does anyone know where I should go to ask?

I know I'm responding to an old post but our union and management agreed to cleaning time granted separate from clerk time if the office does not have a contractual cleaner..therefore it is more hours for clerks at that office to do the duties apart from paid clerk time. If u are doing it on clerk time your boss is just transferring it to custodial time to keep their clerk hours looking good for their bonus...

I work the window in one of the legal MJ states. Just amazed at the amount of mary jane that must be flowing through the system. I suspect that all the packages that we do detain due to obvious strong odor, obvious fake return address etc, are only a tiny tip of the iceberg. Anyone else in these states notice it? Didn't lawmakers anticipate this would happen?

Christine79: What "cleaning" are you doing? You say you are doing custodial work 5 hours/week; 40 hours will make it FT. You are not doing 2 jobs. If you're cleaning between customers, what are you doing? You can't leave the counter can you? Your bid job probably says at bottom of bid, "any tasks necessary" or something to that effect. Therefore, you are not going out of bid. However, if you are senior, no one can displace you out of assignment. That could give you 1 1/2 times pay but just for the amount of time displaced. Could only be a little everyday but track it. Make sure anyone doing custodial work is on correct clock ring. Check w/ PM to see if custodial route sheet is being filled out. If it's filled out and you know the work wasn't done, that's fraud. In short, there is a lot of investigative work probably on your part.

You might also be able to file a grievance that would pay OT and allow cleaning to be done after lobby hours.

/m9150 9153 Not to be a Debby Downer, but you should not hold out hope it'll end anytime soon. Union grieves it in case someday some arb says it's wrong; that that work belongs to the custodial craft, not the clerk craft. It really is being handled but it will not be over soon.

Clerk work always comes first so don't worry about place not being spic and span. And you should never be "scrubbing toilets & waiting on customers at the same time". Do cleaning, then stop, and do window. Do not jump back and forth unless so ordered and then be sure you go to the clock and transfer over to 747 each and every time without exception.

I'd get it 100% straight from NBA or nat'l who should be cleaning. In writing. I understood it was always to be done by the junior person, not rotated. If not, then it means every clerk can be made to clean and that doesn't seem right.

I understand the concept of being there 8 hours anyway, and getting paid regardless.. but why is this being grieved for us then? Our PM has to pull our cleaning rings once a month and provide to union... the president keeps in contact with us and tells us to follow PM's orders and it's all being handeled.
It's an old huge dilapidated corner lot building. We aren't even making a dent. The outside is contracted out (breaking contract) and this was a 40 hour job 18 months ago. Janitor retired.

Christine79 /m9150 - why are you "donating" your time? Are you not on the clock? Why would you get additional pay? Are you getting your clerk duties and the cleaning done all in eight hours? Then you are proving their point.

?When you go to your cleaning job do you lock your drawer and log in and out? Time is money.
