/m69448 Then, there are managers like the ones I had, who would schedule you for the Unthinkable at the drop of a hat, routinely and without regard for its legality. Such as: I retired, the Senior carrier in my unit (and 3rd Senior in a City of hundreds of Carriers), and that Christmas, I was Mandated to work December 25th...and it was on a Sunday! I shit you not. I just did it and grumbled something about making a frikkin' hundred bucks an hour....

/m69449 but they can bring you in on Sunday if they have also brought in all the ODL and plan on working them 12 hours. That forced OT should be done on the rotation system but when they can re-start the rotation is up in the air if not covered by a local agreement. Basically the next day, week, pay period, month, quarter, could be the start again at the bottom. So even though you can't have 60 hours a week by Sunday, you can hit the 12 hours a day limit any day of the week.

 "Full-time employees not on the “Overtime Desired” list
may be required to work overtime only if all available employees on the “Overtime Desired” list have worked up to twelve
(12) hours in a day or sixty (60) hours in a service week.
Employees on the “Overtime Desired” list:"

By Sunday nobody has built up 60 hours, even in December. If they have used the list, like say come December everybody on the list gets off of the list then the rotation system starting with junior regular

When COD's started just showing up with NLM flats along in parcel tubs I stopped selling them since there was nobody prepared to receive the money. I just left a notice to pass it off to clerk as I was willing to take that hit for not actually attempting rather than an OIG coming at me for missing money

Hersbird /m69445 ... Office a little bigger than yours, we haven't signed for stuff for years. I like it, they can't pin anything on us. "Certified? What certified?"

We still sign for stuff in our office, I was talking about somewhere below somebody said they just push the cart out and it's a free for all. We sign for arrow keys, voyager gas cards, real red registered, postage due, CODs, and express. No international registered, no certified, no stamps by mail or fax. We have something like 46 city routes and 15 rurals under one roof so there is plenty of work for a clerk to keep track of all that stuff.

International reds are a dime a dozen....They just toss them in the hamper for delivery.

/m69441: of course, I cannot dispute your personal experience. Wasn’t a carrier, just tons of experience dlvg X-mail. But, dealing with Reg mail, every phase, every person, massive experience. Simply: there is ALWAYS a “last person”. You telling me an MVS driver would just “dump” a #2 sack with all manner of valuables without a sign-off? Contradicts everything I saw at a dozen offices, Plant Red Cage. These drivers protected those sacks like their kids. Best I can derive from you is some boss signs...as last recipient. I cannot conceive of a driver not getting another to accept formal responsibility for a bag of this stuff. To let this just “slide” is utter folly; contradicts every standard practice ever for Reg Mail.

"...my route is beyond my affordability..." - I think most everything is beyond the Affordability of a Letter Carrier, unless he or she is married to another Letter Carrier, and both are on the 12-Hour List lol.

But you don't sign for it if they don't have an accountability clerk so you are not the last person. I get maybe 1 real registered peice a year and my route is beyond my affordability and has 100 business as well.

Re: last two. You say domestic reds are very rare, me out 10 years or not, gotta wonder if your town has over 500 residents. Int’l Reds, I was working when they changed the accountability rules, so true. Previously- had a few arguments but had the explicit USPS regulations- Int’l were supposed to receive exact same treatment as US.
     Again, though, good luck to some folks’ sorry asses when PI comes a’knockin’. They absolutely, positively don’t care if you live or die. Me, some boss said “just dump it” for a Domestic Red, my name listed as the last signer, I would tell him, her to go take a dump.

International registered are no where near the same as a regular red labeled registered. They aren't accountable. If your office isn't signing for things than nothing is accountable. If something goes missing that's 100% on management not the carriers. They are doing you a favor taking that all on themselves.

US regs are super rare. I think I had one this entire year. We get tons of international regs. They are just tossed in our hampers or mixed in with the spurs. We are told to treat them as signature confirmations. If I have a large amount of postage due to turn in, I give it to the closing super.
