    Company Hung Advertisement on Boxes

    Inform your Postmaster and take a sample. They should contact the company and give them a cease and desist message. If they don't, the company can be charged the required postage but I don't know what the procedure is for that as it's above our pay grade. lol

    Another hourly vs salary question

    You're assuming the current count criteria is actually valid. I don't believe it is. For instance, it always takes me longer than the other regular to finish to the route for the day (well - almost always). Yet everyone who has run that route (including me) cannot believe it's evaluated for more...

    Mail Boxes

    I both agree and disagree. :unsure: I agree in that the current evaluated system has never really worked. I have said so on more than one occasion in the past. But there used to be enough extra time built into some standards that it made up for the standards which didn't give enough time. I...

    Mail Boxes

    You can call it cutting our own throats if you like but I was hired to deliver the mail. If I wanted to take packages to the door I would have hired on to UPS or FedEx. And no, you will never be compensated for the work you're doing now and for which you aren't being paid. Sure, you may be able...

    NRLCA...... HELP!!

    I dunno. The very first pallet of Amazon that hit a PO dock should have generated a national level grievance to determine how to pay folks for the extra work. This was their moral and legal duty.

    It's called a national level grievance. It ain't gonna happen.

    Are our 1/2 ton LLV's large enough to do the job?

    If that's what you want to believe. 🤷‍♂️

    Are our 1/2 ton LLV's large enough to do the job?

    Are our 1/2 ton LLV's large enough to do the job?

    I don't believe "half ton" has anything to with it since that's just marketing wank and a common designation but not an actual specification. The two-wheel-drive S-10s they took most of these chassis from were called "half ton" but had an actual payload of something like 1600 lbs. My "half-ton"...
