People need quality time to stay strong with their family. This is not healthy. What is happening. This is sweat shop 3rd world environment material . I know federal safety rules don't apply to rural craft but this is not kosher. Is this militaristic mania? Common since is gone. If I get enough rope I will not hang myself I'll make a rope swing. Over worked people lower the immune system and opportunistic disease follows.

The union will never push the USPS for better terms for us. The USPS broadens the MOU to include the sorting and delivery of flats and letters. The union, instead of demanding any concessions (such as 20 minutes of paid personal time for every four hours of work) simply agrees to USPS's request. Then, it has the audacity to claim this is for our benefit.

My PM told me she got permission to let us come in one hour early (for no additional pay) on Monday to case the mail that was brought in on Sunday. I said I was not interested in coming in early so that she could avoid having to run the outgoing mail to the processing plant. Provide assistance or plan on a nice, long drive.

I cannot understand why union leadership fails to be assertive. Just more of the same pro-management BS.

I'm delivering my route on Sunday.

Junior carriers and overtime list carriers, all RCA's, all PTF's.

Yeah, you read that right... Anyone else?

All routes are being delivered just the same as any other day. Instead of just amazon Sunday, every package and DPS will be ran for each route. Casing just like a normal day. Delivery like a normal day. Supposedly they are paying double time for the regulars? City routes are running normal too.

Craziness.

Well it must not be in your area. I'm in the Midwest. Our mpoo showed up today to 'rally the troops' and congratulate us for no accidents this quarter to date. It is in fact only 150% hourly pay not 200% like originally what we heard in our office.

Does all these hours shoot the overtime rate during the Christmas un guarantee down? Time and a half pay is a shell game for rural s or am I feeling this out all wrong? Hard to trust the leadership's lack of morals.

I thought mail volume was down? Been going down for years according to bs management,

Now want us to work 7 days a week? There something damn suspicious been going on for a long time.

It's all about the political CYA having to do with delaying the Ballots! Its comical how far out of control the USPS reaction has gotten to be! 🤡 I read an article the other day that said we handled 4.5 billion pieces of political mail and only 122 million of that was ballots.
Ratio wise
ballots were a drop in the bucket and consumed very little of the overall time!

Oh and by the way we treated all that crap as if it was first class while collecting pennies per piece for it! Someone has to wake up to this and make them pay for what the get or accept our standards of delivery as it relates to our priority of deliveries!

I can tell ^^^you^^^ that I've been working a heavy political L route on and off quite regularly during the election cycle and have seen hardly any ballots going or coming back. Whole thing was a joke imo. Most people did not buy into the xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and are going to the polls in person in my neck of the woods.

UNION SUXS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lay down and get trampled on all day every day should be rural carrier contract!
I'm banking on xxxxxxx winning in a landslide and the economy going so hot that only a real retard would consider becoming an RCA, making us in high demand more than ever, so we can entertain having a Union that only represents RCA's. RCA's and Career Regulars should not be under the same Union imo. We are treated like sh*t on top of how you are being treated like sh*t. We need our own representation.

No one would listen to the fool trying to dictate a nationwide shut down, so don't wait. Is anyone going to listen to their psycho xxxxxxxxx trying to tell them how to conduct their Thanksgiving dinner gatherings? Hell no. People are sick of this sh*t and the lock down tyrants are only helping xxxxx in a landslide.

I'd bet that Regulars wouldn't be delivering mail on 11/1 if so many didn't xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Let it be a lesson of being easily manipulated. As an RCA, I'm enjoying my 11/1 Sunday DAY OFF.

Hope you Regs actually get paid time and a half today for real.
