Latonya- Only if you are on the clock- then your guaranteed 2 or 4 hours depending how big your office is. As far as how often you are scheduled that is up to your supervisor and no there is no minimum hours that they have to work you

Chris Wilson - CCAs are not converted based on the number of hour they work. You will not find it in the contract because it is not there. Who ever told you that the CCA was converted based on this is full of baloney

I'm lucky to get one day a week, is there a minimum they have to work you? This is ridiculous.

/m6636, other CCAs probably will mutiny if you get one of the weekend days off. But, with lousy CCA retention, maybe some stations might be flexible. I doubt it, though.

A CCA in a neighboring office was converted to regular because he worked a certain number of hours in a calendar year and the contract called for his conversion. Does anyone know where this is in the contract or how many hours you must work?

What are the typical working days and hours for a new hired CCA? Do they have to work both Saturdays and Sundays? If so, will the supervisor allow me to take off on one of those days and allow me to come into work for an extra weekday? I have personal matters to attend to on one of the weekend days. Are the supervisors generally accommodating?

butter- First the ratio is 1 transfer to 3 CCAs converted or 1 transfer to 5 CCAS converted depending on the size of your office. This is what is referred to as the ratio of transfers versus CCAs made regular. This is the 1 in 4 or 1 in 6 ratio. Small offices are 1 in 6 and large offices are 1 in 4. Size is determined by number of work/man hours. Open positions are no longer posted on Ereasign. As a CCA you will just have to wait until enough people quit or retire to become a regular.

Can someone please tell me the conversion phase I asked my shop steward he said that for every regular transfer 4 cca have to be converted before they can accept another transfer then we asked the union president and he said they can transfer any ptf or regular and then if no one takes it they can convert a cca to regular.But I read in our union monthly paper that it's now in house that a cca will be converted to regular and if they do not have a cca
then they will post it. So can someone please tell me the right process.

I quit my CCA position five months ago, never signed resign form. Finding work has been terrible & re-applied. Have interview scheduled. Will USPS re-hire me?

I can't remember if your contract was agreed to or arbitrated.

So, isn't this a joke? CCA are working like a slave and working for pennies. My question is how the hell does a CCA that has been there for 2 yrs make the same as a CCA starting today? No raise in over a yr. With the busiest xmas ever with packages. No wonder they can't keep any CCAs. This contract better benefit CCA or this company is in alot of trouble. God bless

ArkansasMarine, sorry no one has responded to your post. Did you research more and what did you decide?

I have a question for anyone out there who may have knowledge on the CCA health insurance options. I am a CCA just starting the second 360 day term. I see in our CCA Rights and Benefits guide, that we're allowed to get health benefits that include our spouse (Self Plus One). Can anyone chime in and tell me which might be the best option?
There are three which we may choose from.
They are:
(A) the USPS NonCareer Plan wherein the USPS will contribute up to $125 per pay period.
(B) the NALC Consumer Driven Plan, or Value Option Plan wherein the USPS will contribute up to $125 per pay period.
(C) or the FEHB program wherein the USPS contributes nothing towards the premiums.

I don't know where I can compare all of the above to see which one of these would be best for my family and I.

So lets hear it guys. If you need more information it can be found at cca_rights_and_benfits.pdf in your favorite search engine. just download and save the .pdf file to your desktop or downloads folder. open it up, and then press "ctrl+F" and type in health to jump to the health benefits section. Thank you!

/m6625/6626, two years ago our CCAs were working 84 hour work weeks - I think it was actually after Christmas. Now, two or more carriers are going out this November (FMLA) and retiring in January. Apparently, our city has a lot of CCAs. If they don't quit after a lot of political mail or the upcoming holidays (Veterans Day and Thanksgiving) and if they provide enough postal vehicles, they won't have to work those hours.

For the sanity of *Seattle CCA*, what is the minimum? Seattle, hang in there. You can't learn the routes if they don't schedule you. I got lucky and was placed on part of an aux route for about the first 3-4 months. Now I can do it with my eyes closed. Try to keep a positive mental attitude. Call all of the other LOCAL offices around you to see if they need help on the days you aren't scheduled. The worse that can happen is they will tell you they don't need any help. Nothing to lose. If you start "pimping" yourself out to those offices and show you can do it, your supervisor may have second thoughts about scheduling you off next time.

Iam a new cca and had an OTJ training for three days then the fourth day was given a new route by myself. I tried to perform like was taught but considering the new addresses that are hidden, very confusing procedure and trying to be fast enough like the regulars with 20yr experience oh my goodness the boss was really mad and branded me unteachable plus many unspeakable words i cant even write here. It is a total nightmare. I want to learn but the boss is terrifying, on the 5th day he sent me back home and said he will call me when he needs me, Iam now two weeks without being scheduled, this means no money and bills are there glaring at me at end of the month. what do i do now and i want the job, i really need it!! i feel like am collapsing!!!
