I have this terrible discharge that smells like a bread mixture...yeast? HELP?

Does it make a difference if the pse is getting overtime or not? Do pse's get postal overtime or just FLSA overtime? I've been gone long enough, maybe the rules have changed.

Pretty dumb argument by them. 'We're open and providing service, but it's not a service day', whatever that is.

So I'd grieve for a n/s regular to come in for 8 OT and a PSE to come in for 3.

We have a PSE who works in excess of 11 hrs. on Sundays for amazon and now priority parcels. Management says they can work them over 8 hrs. on Sundays because it is not consider a service day.Is this a grievant because their working over 8 when we have an overtime desired list for the regulars?

For all of you clerks reg or not management is doing whatever and with whoever they want i was listening in on telecom other day mpoo basically said to other pm move your clerks hours do whatever you you want when they file grievance then we will address it another reason why i am out the door in april usps doesnt care about their people we are just bodies about

/m20274 what exactly does your bid state?
09:23 AM ET (US)
Sounds wrong to me but things have changed since that terrible contract. Double check with your NBA that the local isn't making a mistake, and find out exactly what your rights are about only working in your bid zip.
08:45 AM ET (US)
Are any of you having trouble with being taken out of your bid assignment and sent to other office We have two offices to different zip codes My bid job is at one office Union says things have changed

As timekeeper, I did many pay corrections and 1608s for them. Finance wanted me to write '1608' in big letters on the 2043 which was the correction itself that was sent in yellow pouch to payroll that my printouts came in. So it was a while ago for sure.

Once or twice people would change their minds about not getting an advance and ask 2-3 days later for one and I'd do it. No reason not to. It was their money that they should have had on payday. Once did it for 3 casuals who'd worked elsewhere and bosses told me casuals couldn't get advances. Told them you guys got paid correctly on payday so what excuse could there be for not doing it for anyone else who needed/deserved it?

No one argued with us timekeepers back in the day which is probably why it's a mgt function now.

/m20270 It is my understanding that once a correction has been sent in that you cannot get a cash advance. I'd read section 23-3 Employee Emergency Salary Issuance in the Finance manual (F-101) Its my understanding had the correction not been made and faxed then you could get a cash advance and the steps to do so are also provided in this section. Basically you could get cash advance from your own office. The sad thing is supervisor either didn't want to do this or did not know how and chose to send in a correction instead.

I have a PM that cannot do time correctly and I've had LOTS of corrections. The pay adjustment will show up on the next paycheck. I have been told that the station is charged $75 for each correction and so often mgmt. will attempt to avoid this also.
Sorry to hear of their mistake. One weeks pay is a hit.

You 100% have the right for a cash advance called a form 1608. You take it to a financial station and get your cash.

They're saying no because they're too lazy to fill one out, or they don't want to have to keep track of it and get the money back when your pay's been fixed, or they're mean and bluffing.

So insist on your money and call in union if they stall any more.

I didn't get paid.for a week on my check. supervisor made the correction and faxed to finance, but I was told it would take a couple of weeks. is this right? someone else told me I should be able to get a pay advance. they are telling me no.
12:13 PM ET (US)
thanks for the answer on the certified form fill out,i didn't think we had to fill it out but want more info/1111

4 words: See ya in court. Paying someone's late fees with a no-fee MO is akin to a scam, and if ordered to do so by my boss, I'd file a grievance to stop that silliness. There's no postal reference to allow such payments.

Without a stamped receipt, it's 'you said, they said'.
01:58 PM ET (US)
Have you ever had a customer come in week later and state i handed you my bill and its late i want you to pay late fee no??? Well we have and that is why we do not take mail over the counter pm rules to protect his clerks
08:34 PM ET (US)
/m20264 Worked window in 7 places and we always had a tub or tray behind us for uncancelled that would be dispatched later. I'm sure it made people feel better.
Refusing to take mail is picking an unnecessary fight.

/m20263 You missed the joke. PV spelled it that way on purpose.
