Here's a related question to my last. I am considering taking a job outside of the post office, converting seems unlikely in the near future. I would hate to miss out on the back pay I'm entitled to. Any guesses whether they will pay employees the back pay they earned if there no longer employees at the time the finally get around to paying it out?

Thank you Alaska! Hadn't seen that. Gosh ol golly my union two two months ago said it would take two weeks two a month. Guess it will come in handy for a ski trip.

Edbobnew- New postal records says regular carriers will get back pay probably December. CCAs not until January or February

oliver2017- They can schedule CCAs to work 7 days a week for as long as they want. Not smart but they can do it. Unless CCAs are on a hold down they have no set schedule and can be required to work as scheduled

Once you opt on a hold down your on it until the regular carrier returns

I am a CCA, I am currently on an indefinite opt, my question (s) is this.

Can I get off this opt by letting management know I no longer want to do the opt ?


Can I get off this opt by opting to another opt ?

Please provide a reference(s) if you have them, Thank You Very Much.

Hey All - you may want to read the GAO article I just posted at PEN's blog entitled "GAO Lists Key Considerations for Potential Changes to USPS’s Monopolies" - the article includes a short video from the GAO Watchdog. Folow this link:

Debbie....You will find that mistakes are overlooked when they want to like someone and misdeliveries are exaggerated when they feel like complaining. There's not much you can do about it accept decide that when your the regular that you will not act like them. DO NOT admit to misdeliveries that you do not know if you made. I have caught regulars flat out lying about misdeliveries. This job requires thick skin and self protection. I do not condone lying! But as I said do NOT admit to something you do not know for a fact that you did. Same with MSP scans

In short, you have been working for over a year so you can't be let go unless there is lack of work. Have the supervisors talked to you about this? Some carriers just do not like CCAs. Ignore them

In short, I am a CCA and have been assigned to work a regular shift who is on vacation. After the regular gets back from vacation, 2 days after....regular approaches me and states to me with a very blanked, empty expressionless glare on her face and said i delivered a lot of mail to the wrong boxes?" of course, feeling intimidated by her to begin with....i respond by saying, I DID? I can't tell you how stupid i felt....it made me feel to incompetent. I was casing mail at that time...next to the person who she collaborates with daily....(union stewards) whom could hear everything she said. It may sound petty, but it isn't! why in the world after delivering the mail for over a year, would i deliver the mail to the wrong boxes??? I don't have that kind of reputation. I am told to make sure If the apartment number is not listed, that i look at the names that are placed in the boxes..(cluster box-apartment setting). I should have demanded proof, i knew she would not have that proof. the ohter carrier said i misdelivered a parcel on his route....now why and how? is beyond me. I delivered a parcel to 843, but the parcel belonged to 923.....the houses are obviously spaced apart. And i knew prior to that the house at 843 is VACANT!!! I felt like i was set up. The right thing to do is to report it to the supervisor and not them take it upon themselves to defame us. we don't report to them, we report to the supervisor.....which believes me to think that the union steward and supervisors have collaborating together to rid of those who they feel don't fit?
the problem is real.....there is a bunch that hang out, all officers of the union.....who by the way, is suppose to be working for us, but in turn, works against us. WTF!!

I'm not a steward or a carrier and I don't know the contract or JCAM very well, so I would not have been much help, sorry.

Who's venting now?

5 days, not one response. Conclusion=forum is pointless as a source to get factual, non-biased, and reliable information from City Carriers. Great for carriers who like to vent and spill their feelings about their own experiences with mgmt. Adios, account closed.

(the first message didn't seem to post so trying once more-hope it does not duplicate) Hi. This question is for all NALC Regular Carriers or Stewards who know the contract or JCAM very well. When it comes to Amazon Sundays, we have an office that is being used as a central HUB for City Carriers, as well as Rural Carriers (from up the street) on Amazon Sundays. Our PSE scans and sorts the packages into separate City and Rural routes. When the City Carriers are done carrying the city routes, one of the CCA's is being told by management (who is nowhere to be found on Saturdays or Sundays) that they must stay and complete the computer work which entails turning in the Rural Carriers hours to Amazon. Is this a 204b position? If so, does it bar me from running or holding a seat in our Local? In addition, I have seen, nor heard of, any forms being completed for any of us CCAs to execute this computer work. We are being told to clock to Amazon "street" and Amazon "office" and then for the Amazon "supervision". The other kicker is, while everyone is out running their Amazon routes, the "supervisor" is also the on call help for ANY problems that arise. i.e. trucks breaking down, undeliverable packages, etc. Any comments or references would be a lot of help, as tomorrow is Sunday. Thank you all.

Work Hour Guarantees
NALC has negotiated certain protections for CCAs regarding work hour guarantees. Article 8, Sec-
tion 8.D of the National Agreement states:
Any CCA employee who is scheduled to work and who reports to work in a post of-
fice or facility with 200 or more workyears of employment shall be guaranteed four (4)
hours of work or pay. CCAs at other post offices and facilities will be guaranteed two
(2) hours work or pay.

I have a question.

I was scheduled to work on 5/8/2017, I came in and clocked on to work, 30 minutes later the supervisor came over and said I was non scheduled for 5/8/2017 and sent me home.

Is there a guarantee of hours for CCAs when they clock on, then management tells them to clock off and go home, is this a violation of the contract.

If so please provide me with a reference.

Thank You Very Much
