New RCA here, Is there a special auto insurance you have to get to deliver mail out of your own vehicle? I just bought a car just for the few times I will need to use on the routes that don’t have an LLV. Every quote I’m filing out is treating it as a commercial business Thanks in advance

/m2668 -- justdoit -- "Does anyone know the effective date for newly hired RCAs to be required to have a POV for delivery?"

-- Unless you are going to an all LLV office, you should have a route-capable POV when you report for duty. That should be mentioned by manglement during your job interview.

"can anyone point me toward the section in either the national or rural contract that states this requirement or any other involving POVs? "

-- PO-603 ( Rural Carrier Duties and Responsibilities ):

-- Page 1 -- Providing and maintaining a vehicle ( if a USPS-owned / leased vehicle is not provided )....

-- Page 4 -- You are responsible for furnishing all vehicle equipment necessary for safe and prompt handling of the mail, unless a USPS-owned/leased vehicle is assigned to the route.

-- Page 4 -- Your personal vehicle must be large enough to accommodate the normal mail volume and constructed to protect the mail from loss or damage.

-- Contract's Article 9.2.J.2 Vehicle Equipment -- Rural carries shall furnish all necessary vehicle equipment for prompt handling of the mail unless the vehicle is furnished by the Employer.

-- Contract's Article 9.2.J.5 -- Auxiliary Assistance and Auxiliary Rural Carriers -- Unless a USPS owned or leased vehicle is provided, a leave replacement who is performing auxiliary assistance or is employed as an auxiliary rural carrier shall provide a vehicle and in addition to compensation, shall be paid an EMA on a per-mile or per-hour basis...

-- During the job interview, manglement may somehow fail to mention the above, especially if already short on subs.

am i the only one counting? remember when? this forum would blow up with comments? up almost an hour because of new houses in bank.. we are not close to the big storm.. but it extremely effects mail flow where we are.. any attention given to us, or are we left to melt away and take the hit with no mail??

If any of you rurals pick up parcels in quantity from customers, don't let mgt tell you you are only to scan 5 of them. Scan every single one! We were told, a week before the count, that the "rule" is scan only 5. Not true!

/m2652 local laws always.. here we cannot drive with hazards (we do).. here the shoulder of the road and regular lane are considered one (nobody knows that), so turn signal would mean what?? i would suggest blinkers, but i would think hard to mandate.. anyone else??

/m2653 short answer. yes..until last contract the des. 79's had the option of taking the 6-0 option.. working the aux only.. it was changed that they can make you run other routes but you do get to do your aux first before offering assistance.. see contract for more details or ask
