Is walking someone three times in a week different than being followed everyday by manager in his car? He doesn't get out. He just makes his presence known by staying a foot behind my truck and doesn't say anything. Very intimidating and creepy. Is there a guideline for street ops or walking? It is not a route count or anything. He just follows.

They can walk with you any time they want but you are to be given time to learn a new route. And there are no street standards, it takes what it takes

/m9736 They can walk with you every day. Here is a trick. It works with sadists. Tell them you like it and ask for more.

Can I be walked my first week on a new bid route? Management says I am not performing to standard.

It could also be sexual harassment.

Supervisor made threats to blow Postmasters head off to multiple employees on the workroom foor. O.I.G. investigates and recommend termination of supervisor. End result: Postmaster transfers out because of threat and supervisor ends up with a suspension and is now coming back to work in our office. Question: What do we file or do,to prevent from having to work under this supervisor,for fear of our safety now? Floor speeches by management on zero tolerance for violence in the workplace is total bs

I'll let someone else break the news to you. I can't bear to write a Dear Jhon letter. But at least you have been around long enough to already expect the worst.

I'm a CCA and I'll be converted to PTF next 09/30/17. I have been working as a CCA since 05/20/13 (4 years 4 months). Any idea what will be my pay rate? I'll start from step a or all the time served as CCA will count?

I fill many of mine out in triplicate. It depends on the circumstances. But if you don't get an acknowledged copy back, you cannot prove anything. Our managers got in the habit of filling out their own forms and putting lies on them. So I have my second copy to prove what I submitted and they have no excuse to not give me back the first copy to notify me of their decision.

/m9728 I do 3971 in duplicate and get them to sign and date the copy which I keep. I know it is not approved at this time but I have proof when it was submitted.

We have no local MOU. I never get an approved 3971. I fill them out and keep a copy. If I fill out a leave slip before the surrounding offices ask for the CCA, then I usually can get the day off. If I don't get the leave slip in early enough then I'm just told I can't have it off because our CCA is scheduled elsewhere. Most of the time it's not a big deal. Until I need this day off and no one else can work.

PTForever- Did you get an approved 3971? Check your local MOU for how many days they have to approve or deny it. If they approved it who cares about the CCAs break in service

I filled out an leave request back in July for a Saturday in September. I was just told the office CCA will be starting their break in service that day, so my PM doesn't know if they can get anyone else to fill in. Why is the CCA's 5 day break starting on a Saturday, and why couldn't it be moved to that Monday?

carrier2, contact the union about when the job should be filled. If the route is being withheld the union is supposed to be notified. Work this through the union, not management.

/m9722 carrier2, are you now the senior carrier in your office?

/m9722 It is a shame no one informed you of options you might have had the past several years. I don't know if the special rules for PTFs carried over to this contract or not. I would contact my NBA or someone in the union who knows their stuff. I wonder if your PTF preference trumps clerks being excessed. Maybe post a question about this on a couple of forums. Someone may point you in the right direction.

Can someone on this forum help carrier2??

I did know about being able to transfer into a full time job, but I am in a small office with one regular route and one aux. I have been holding down the regular route for a year. Now the regular has retired and this excessing has popped up. I will probably retire as a PTF now.
