/m2683 -- JordanMmoore -- "I’m 28 years old and I’ve worked in a factory for 6 years now and I’m looking for something different. Is mail carrying it?"

-- IMHO..
 
-- If your factory job is paying a decent wage with some health care and other benefits, stay there!

-- As far as "being different" - that is the USPS, but not in a good way.

-- Carrying mail used to be a great job, but now -- look elsewhere if unhappy with your factory job.

-- Looking to the future: electronic repair or writing code for computer programs and apps may be worth a look and training

/m2678 If you're in the union, complain about conflict of interest to ADR.

But if you are not, then we in the union usually assume you're not versed enough in the contract enough to know what is, and what is not, a violation. Make your case but you have a high bar to hit. Steward may have married your ex, but the only real conflict is if steward acts like he's in mgt. Or acts as 204-B.

/m2678 -- 49Dana -- "What do I do if my office has a Union Stewart. And well there is a conflict of interest."

-- Can you be more specific with the "conflict of interest"?

"Is another way of talking with another Union Stewart and where can I find one."

-- If you have problems with the office steward, you can contact your Assistant District Representative.

-- You can ask other carriers in the office, or visit the nrlca.org web site. Scroll down the home page. Steward / ADR info can be found on the left side of the page. Will have to know what Area you are in.

/m2674 -- 49Dana -- "Just was wondering if anyone got the Memo that my office got that you will not be able to use LOP anymore.."

-- Guessing you mean "LWOP" -- Leave WithOut Pay.

"there was a Memo of some sort that went out I would guess to all offices not just ours!

-- Politely ask to see "the memo" and note where it came from.

-- In the mean time, contact your Assistant District Representative about this new "policy".

-- See if anyone in the office kept the August 2015 issue of the national magazine. In its Question Box Section, it addressed LWOP.

-- Article 10.4.B -- Upon request, a rural carrier SHALL be granted annual leave or leave without pay ( LWOP ) on Saturday, at the carriers's option, PROVIDED a leave replacement is available. ( no such guarantee for other days )

-- The ELM addresses LWOP in Chapter 5.

-- On the down side, Step 4 ( L-124 ) in part: the granting of LWOP is a matter of administration discretion.

-- Lastly, at my last post office, LWOP had to be approved at District. Needless to say, getting LWOP granted was probably impossible.

Just mgt wishes. If you get approved for sick leave, and you have none, pay system gives you LWOP automatically.

From at least 1970 on, mgt has gone back and forth about letting you use LWOP while you had paid leave [annual or sick] available. When I retired in 2005, where I was working, mgt let me use LWOP while I had annual.

So never believe mgt and for the most honest and up-to-date info, see union.

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.
