/m19665 Start recording all your hits in a little notebook. After a month or so, compare what your wrote to your stubs. If it doesn't seem to line up, ask to see union and go over it together.

Mgt may be paying you improperly---it has happened, may still be happening now. But I know as an ex-timekeeper, you need some evidence other than your own memory to even determine what happened, and then to figure out if there was something to be concerned about. Your notes will be invaluable and the basis for any investigation.

19665: How are they hiding the overtime hours? If you stay past your 8 hours [ assuming you are a FTR], the EBR will record your hours unless someone is deleting the rings [ have your steward look for 053 code for overtime hours ]. If Management is deleting clock rings, contact OIG to report it.

They are making the smart move here in Orlando and are holding off implementing the day off changes determined by the first F1 Scheduler. We are expecting the results from the second one by mid September. Hopefully we will get better results, but I doubt it.

They told us last night in Ft. Myers that they were going to go ahead with the reposting of 40+ bids this week and then do it all over again in February

They have feed more garbage into their Fisher Price toy computer, to see what kind of crap comes out this time.

Cuda is right. Obviously the numbers that were generated the first time around didn't meet mgmts satisfaction. July is the appropriate month, surely not seasonal months. All of us near or close to retirement are a drain on them. MHAs and new regulars are at the bottom of the heap in labor costs....24 months and counting!!

And the information to be submitted is from a lower volume period (July). This could result in more abolishments and excessing.

So the Service says "we are going to postpone the Function one and conduct another one in September". WTF over? Who is running this organization, Moe; Curly and Larry?

Agreed. I have seen intolerable though. Beyond the pale behavior. Even then the employee had better have exhausted all internal remedy. A high bar but clearable in some instances. An absolute last resort.

Ya, I do not disagree with you. I was referring to one arbitrator following what another arbitrator ruled on is called following precedent.

I am a firm believer in employees being made whole if they have been so wronged it becomes intolerable for them to continue working. However, intolerable does not mean inconvenient or unhappy.

No doubt it is a high standard but no doubt if it were not at least somewhat possible no term of art would have been coined for it.

82, "That is called precedent". When he told me that he was following Arbitrators who had actually moved away from existing precedent. Casuals were used in lieu of regulars. Precedent had Arbitrators awarding hour for hour remedy for the violation at the regular rate. This made the regular employees who should have been utilized whole. Along comes a USPS argument that only the difference in the rate between casual and regular should be paid and precedent was abandoned in favor of a remedy more palatable to USPS and one more likely to have that Arbitrator retained in the panel. So all in all it would not be called precedent but rather "preservation" (self preservation). The damned lemmings knew when to sell out.
