Ask the supervisor to write you a doctor's note that says you are fit for work.

Less service. Higher cost. Typical liberal response.

The U.S. Postal Service is pulling out of a three-year deal with Framingham’s Staples Inc. that offered postal services in approximately 500 of the office supply chain’s stores, according to the American Postal Workers Union.

So Staples deal is dead. Yeah APWU!

/m11351 Not sure about NAPS; more faith in federal laws.

/m11350 This time of year, mgt makes some EAS directly supervise some workers who get OT, so those EAS too must get it.

Article on postalmag says postal workers generally don't live as long as other federal workers. Anyone hear this before? If true, wonder what's behind it.

They don't get time and a half OT. They get straight time for the additional hours. FLSA doesn't apply to exempt employees. FLSA is what they are exempt from. There didn't use to be any extra pay for working the non sched day. Postal service just decided to start paying it. Guess NAPS pushed them on it.

/m11340 Look up FLSA. It states who is eligible for over time pay. As I understand it and I may be wrong, is level 17 may receive OT if they are in directs supervision of subordinate employees. If they stay late and complete paperwork they do not get OT. I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

Terrible thing to be a single parent. Much worse when the kid is a drug using shit head. The employee has choices. Contact EAP, commit the kid, or let the kid go on about their busibess. The kid will eventually fall into the criminal justice system. I do not see how this is the Post Office's fault.

/m11346 where the child's other parent? Does the Post Office not have a right to expect an employee to be at work site when they are scheduled? As far as the supervisor pushing her over the edge, I think that's the wrong culprit----that would be the daughter!
And, again, where is the father? But I agree it is sad she is going thru all this. A troubled child can certainly bring heartbreak. Hope it will all work out sooner than later.

lighterblue.com - a website (husband pointed out to me) to help those with depression. He wondered how many would mix it up with LiteBlue. If lighterblue has been around a while, I didn't know about it.

/m11344 Typical fashion, for that PM to get a promotion out of it."

Yup. At one office I worked at there was a clerk with an attendance problem. She was a single mom with a teenage daughter doing drugs and getting into trouble and this was causing the clerk to take unscheduled leave to attend to these issues. Supervisor, knowing the issues the clerk is going through, calls her into his office to give her a L.O.W.

It's the last straw for the clerk. She loses it, grabs a pair of scissors off of the boss' desk and starts cutting her wrists. He grabs the scissors and restrains the clerk while someone else calls 911. Later on he gets a $500 award for preventing the clerk from offing herself even though he was the one who pushed her over the edge.

Isn't this place great?

/m11344 APWU never signed that violence statement. We were certain PO would use it against workers and never themselves. Sadly we were right.
