Egark We are university town and students need want Christmas packages. From Black Friday through the first of the year we average 7000 packages a day in this small area. We have had over 15000 in a day so some of our employees were working 14 to 16 hours a day, Our union files for over 12 and won not just for the regulars but also the CCA's. Poom nad district manager have even made statements that CCA's don't won't to go back out after 12 hour since the union has won a arbitration award. The Steward picked up a package from his regular customer (family member) on the route he was on. Just doing favor for family member. He received 14 day suspension letter.

golfgod /m5222 - I have some questions: 1) why are you people still out at 9PM? 12 hour maximum. 2) What is a 14 day letter? 3) Why is he sending out packages?

/m5220 That kind of thing usually does not involve USPS but I have not seen the source for your rumor so I could not say for sure.

One of our shop stewards has been filing alot of grievances against management and winning. Now the tide has turned. Management has decided to go after him for every little issue. We have been working alot of hours and when we come back from route we are to deliver packages. The one evening when our shop steward came back from route they wanted him to deliver packages. At a quarter of 9 pm he receives a phone call to come back and had to be off the clock by 9 pm. Where he was he knew wasn't going to make it. Had PDI and they claim he disobeyed a order and gave him a 14 day letter. A few days later the came carrier had a package to send out and when he got back he went to the window before they closed and mailed it. They had a PDI and again he received another 14 day letter. Wrote him up for expanding his street time. Management stood there is said nothing to him but allowed him to continue and then the next day called him in for a PDI. Isn't management supposted to correct problems instead of punishing people? Should our president grieve this.

Is the hiring freeze being talked about on Jan 20th 2017 gonna include CCA conversions to regular? I can't find any clarification on whether USPS is included in freeze.

I am a 20 years employee who has spent the last 19 years in maintenance. I am looking to transfer to Southern California hopefully as a carrier so I can remain on days. However, I do not fully understand the new transfer rules for carriers. If I am understanding correctly carrier jobs will no longer appear on eReassign, so all I can do is put in requests to various places and hope for the best. Is this correct and are there still transfer possibilities under the new rules or am I just hoping against reason?

thanks postalvet....so much idiocity happening here, it is making my head spin! After 30 yrs I thought I had seen it all! But the stupidity continues on! I am so sick of hearing "file a grievance, I will do what I want". I remember the days when management respected the contract and employees, but not anymore. Four more years and I am out! Hope I can last that long!

We were told today that management DOES NOT have to notify a carrier if they are mandated on the NS, as long as they post a schedule they cover their ass, true? Non ODL carrier on medical restrictions mandated to work Saturday NS day and was just notified tonight by chance.
