they can bid between all those offices?

news to me.

/m20299 When you say stand alone, do you mean that they are their own bid cluster? Because they aren't. They are part of the Salt Lake district. It's the REC, 2 plants (GMF and ASF) and a bunch of stations that are all a part of the same bid cluster.

/m20294 if the area had a strong local the ccc would be part of the same bid cluster as all the other offices.

check with the local apwu of the area you want to work.

but look at the salt lake rec they are stand alone.

/m20294 I am an FTR at one of the Wichita stations, and while I can’t speak for the other three CCC’s, I know that ours is part of the bid cluster (plant, stations, CCC). I forget what you look for in eReassign, pretty sure they are under Headquarters’ domain.

mulligan2.... i'm trying to avoid management turning us down when we want to take incidental leave (among other reasons). our office has always been quite free with granting us leave. without replacing our PSE i don't see how they could continue. yes, we could just call in sick, but we just don't do that unless we're sick. so back to the question: is there a way to enter our postage dues into the RSS, instead of PostalOne?
07:13 PM ET (US)
usps63.... Why should they [district] give any help? You are the help. You BT and ET. You get paid for the time in between. Unless you are management why do you bother trying to manage? Take their money and go to the bank. You are just the hired help. Get over it.
06:08 AM ET (US)
district says they're not giving us any help, no more ptf's, and no pse's after our last pse just left. they're saying our office doesn't generate enough walk-in revenue to qualify (what one has to do with the other is beyond me). so now my office is looking to add more walk-in revenue. someone came up with the idea of using one (or all) of our postage due accounts, somehow entering them into the RSS instead of postalone. we've tried every which way we could think of, but came up with nothing. any suggestions, or is it just not possible?

Does anybody here know anything about the customer care centers? I am currently a full time regular in a pdc looking to transfer to a customer care center. Are the care centers individual entities or are they part of larger bid clusters? I didn't know if this could be done via ereassign or not :/ Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Trying to find advice on how to stop banging my head against the wall every.single.day with my new PM. I was in a real Catch-22 because if he hadn't taken the office, it would have been probably downgraded to a 6, putting me under a 21 & making me the junior clerk in charge of 4am trucks. Having him means some security for the office for a few years longer (I'm a PTF+cleaning, sitting at about 37/38 hrs per week, soon to hopefully be made 6-day regular). Since this is his 5th office in 5 years, I'm getting a sense there might be some problems with him...

I'm off next week so I'm hoping a week away & I can come back with a better attitude (or better meds). Basically, he's very unprepared to deal with a clerk who is self-assured & knows what she's doing, knows everyone here, has the office running great & really doesn't need him.

His general demeanor is insecure with a great deal of defensivness thrown in.

being a data collection technician, you would answer to the district office, not your local postmaster or supervisor. so they don't mess with you locally. thirty years ago, dcts would get little training, then they started making them take tests to make sure they were qualified(60 questions open book tests). now they are tested regularly to make sure they stay qualified.

***waste what time I have and not get paid for it.***
06:59 PM ET (US)
Ok, I just wanted to make sure that if there was an accident of some kind or a delay, out of my control, happened to make me go over that I wouldn’t be screwed. I didn’t intend on making it a regular thing. Just wanted to be sure I wasn’t salary where I didn’t get paid for being on their time. I didn’t want to waste, what little personal, time I have.

Thank you for the information.

As an hourly-rate-worker, you must be paid for all time on the clock including OT. You're not on salary if you're a clerk and covered by the contract.

But you're getting into 'the dog ate my homework' territory. Once a month, fine maybe. More than that they'd likely only send you to nearby less-desirable places.
05:54 PM ET (US)
Thank you everyone for your input!

Follow-up question: Lets say I get caught in traffic on the way back to my office and it puts me over 8 hrs; would I get overtime for that? Or do I just get paid 8 hrs and that’s it?

I think the last few times someone came to do an ODIS test in our office, they came from Albany (a 4 hour drive).
01:07 PM ET (US)
data collection techs do a variety of tests on the mail, like Origin Destination information System(ODIS). there use to be more dcts scattered across my state, but in my experience they have been reduced to fewer locations. they have to cover practically our entire state from one end to the other and start as early a 8 or 9 pm or as late as 6 am. your OT might come if your home office needs you for work outside your regular duties, but you shouldn't get much doing the tests.
