Just change the lock already!

/m2250 no one asked about and anyone lower.

if they send a level 4 custodian you would need mechanic pay.
but you might have to grieve it.

I can only answer the questions as put forth. I try not to assume anything.
level 3 custodian

jeeze Postalvet I'm trying to make heads or tails out of your responses but it isn't easy. So I'm still a level 3 custodian, and so what I got out of your posts is that they can't send me to do lock changes because as I understand you to say, it is level 5-10 only. Quote from postalvet in /m2239: management can send a level 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10. And in /m2242 you say: there is NOT a dedicated position of lock changer so ANY "mechanic" can do the work and because "mechanics" are 5 thru 10 anyone can do it.

Way to start it up Idaho, what came first the chicken or the egg ?
05:16 PM ET (US)
the original question of 2221 was and is "what level work is changing customer cbu locks?"

and the answer is still "any level".

stop trying to cloud the issue.

/m2246 nope your the ignorant one.

stop putting words out that I did not say.
where did I state this "and are you telling me these employees CAN'T be sent to do lock changes because they don't have the word "mechanic" in their title???" ?????

can't you read????

Smh, you've still got more holes in your story than swiss cheese. One of yer links said nothin bout mechanic. The other one did, but I haven't seen any level 5 mechanics round here. I've seen plenty of "level 5 building MAINTENANCE custodians" and "level 4 laborer/custodians"....and are you telling me these employees CAN'T be sent to do lock changes because they don't have the word "mechanic" in their title??? Again, we need ya to be clear.

Your ignorance is on full display! And I'll try again, you are/were in maintenance or are/were a union rep???

Also, every settlement I've ever read, contained complete sentences that were usually clear and to the point, rather than ambiguous. This is a time where posting a settlement could save both of us a lot of posting. I'm convinced you are union and that post below is right 1186 is a good form.

/m2243 ignorant people make my life FUN!

level 5 mechanic above.

does your management pay them level 8???

no where in my post did I say what you posted. authorized means an authorized full time bid position. THINK! anyone can be paid and should be paid for the work they perform.

if management sends a level 9 to change locks what to you believe they get paid??

Why do USPS Sanitation Engineers(aka janitors) make $27.00 hr and in the real world they make $9.00 hr.
They sure as hell don't work any harder.

PostalVet Your replies are so bad. Most offices in my area are NOT "authorized for a painter" but, in spite of this, from time to time, Mngmt makes a request for painting to be done by whatever maintenance personnel is assigned to their office. So, are you telling me they DON'T get paid level 8 to paint in that circumstance?

And regarding lock changes, are you telling me that all employees get paid the same level to change locks, all the way from level 5 all the way up to 10???? And what level is it exactly, that they get paid?

And where in the 50 states plus Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands, do you find a level 5 mechanic??? Because I aint ever seen one....

/m2241 painter if the office is authorized a position is level 8.

/m2240 not reading too much into this. there is NOT a dedicated position of lock changer so ANY mechanic can do the work and because mechanics are 5 thru 10 anyone can do it.

what is so hard to understand?
if you want a concrete policy you file a grievance and get someone out of the office to make a determination.

So PostalVet, I've been occasionally scanning these pages for a while now, and your posts have inspired me to make my first post. What level is painting? Can you show it in writing? To be clear, I'm not asking who can do it. I'm not asking about bqnet. My question has nothing to do with anything from management.

Also, what positions did/do you hold?

/m2239 You are reading way too much into this. It was/is a simple question about the level, and you said it's level 5 through 10....thx...;-)
09:58 AM ET (US)
/m2237 again it is what your management tells you.

management can send a level 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10

find you position here http://eseries.apwu.org/bqnet/bq_alpha.cfm

and look for this "Performs other duties as assigned."

They used to pay the custodians level 6 wages for changing locks on cluster boxes.
