/m2713.... If u want the harassment to stop, just say u gonna file an EEO and watch how the harassment stops. I had the same problem but once I mentioned EEO, I never had that problem again. Also, write down everything that they do and say to you. Career employees like to pick on PSE'S and especially if u don't know your rights. It's because they went through stuff so they want to take it out on the people they can. And that's usually a PSE. So, LEARN YOUR RIGHTS and don't let anyone bully you.

PSE16 Most PSEs have seen that sort of attitude with PTFs on a daily bases. When they get that PTF behind their name they seem to think they are so much better than you. But believe me there are a lot of really good PTFs out there who remember where they came from and are willing to help you any way they can. Being a PTF does come with benefits and make you a career person but does not make you a BETTER person. My advise is remember how you feel now and when you become a PTF treat the PSEs in your office with greater respect than you got. What you are experiencing is very common. Hang in there!!

I've been a PSE for a little over a year and am still finding it hard to fit in. Mainly with the 2 PTF's. They seem to be the ones telling the supervisor when I should work. Telling me when I should take my 2 hour break. They can be very rude. Has anyone else experienced this on how hard they make it to fit in?

/m2709... Yes it effects the PSE's...
They can be let go as easy as 3 words. Lack Of Work. Or just not schedule you
Not so with the career employees. Excessing rules apply.

Anyone interested may want to check out the APWU website. Reductions in Service and Jobs. As of now I think it is effecting the career people but for some reason I bet it will come back to the PSEs somehow. So many PSEs were converted to PTFs and now the Postal Service does not have the mail volume to justify them. So excessing notices are going out.

/m2705 It counts when you are the ONLY one all day doing everything. Opening, putting the mail up, working the retail window, doing the dispatch,all the stuff needed in the computer, and then closing and locking up. No supervisor or PM comes and do anything. I work my office every other Saturday alone and I get higher level pay. If u not sure, your shop stew should tell you.

I usually do dispatch on the days I work and I'm the only one at the end of the day and on Saturdays when I do dispatch there is no one there when I go in at 3:30 either. So does this count?

/m2703 Yes, you are suppose to get higher level pay if you are the only one opening the retail store, working it, and then closing it for the day. You get paid as a level 7.

Is it true if I work and there is no supervisor or Post Master in the building and I'm the one responsible for the building and locking up, that I should get paid a higher level?

Having problems with a fairly new postmaster. She's been PM about 1.5 yrs. I do not work with her daily...I work in a very busy 4 hr office by myself so I usually only correspond with my pm through email. Seems like she always try's to do the opposite of what I want or need.
1) she never orders stamps I/my customers want. She always says they are unavailable.

2) She says I cannot call other post offices to see if they have these stamps available for customers.

3) She refuses to let me use LWOP if I have AL. My union rep says I am allowed to use LWOP. PM just says union is not her boss.

4) She says do not call the area boss because she does not like clerks and if I call her I will be on her "s**t" list.

5) PM likes to use the "I'm the boss and I said so"

6) She will deny annual leave for some because she "may" have something to do at that time.

Anyone else have issues like this?
Who can I contact that will actually do something?

Hey Craig Dymek, I don't know what ur situation is but, if u not getting hours, u can file for partial unemployment. A lot of postal worker don't know this but u can. And when u do, watch how fast they will start giving u hours. I don't know the answer about the health care so sorry.

Any one know how long the United health care plan is good for after leaving the postal service. Unfortunately i have to move on. Our PUM has made it difficult to provide for my family. It is not a choice i want but is needed
