Forcing Sunday amazon delivery on an Aux route RCA?

#1
I have a 6 day Aux route about 3 1/2 hrs a day, just got told I have to head to a hub this Sunday to deliver amazon which doesn't even cover my town. (my town has no Sunday delivery). Add to that I'm told I will need to take a day off on my route to make up for that Sunday. So I am giving up a day I get time toward sick and vacation to do someone that gives me neither. Just wondering my options or if this has been discussed before. Thanks

Grievance! Sundays do not count towards your 6-day workweek & mgmt cannot force a sub to take off for working a Sunday when it comes to their Primary. Contact your Union Rep ASAP!

MailTime -- "I have a 6 day Aux route about 3 1/2 hrs a day, just got told I have to head to a hub this Sunday to deliver amazon which doesn't even cover my town. (my town has no Sunday delivery). Add to that I'm told I will need to take a day off on my route to make up for that Sunday. "

-- For starters, how many RCA's and ARC's in your office?

-- Politely ( or other wise ) ask to see manglement's reference for taking a day off.

-- Guessing you did not sign up for the Volunteer List to work Sunday Delivery, but did sign the Non-Volunteer List. The office does have such lists, doesn't it?

-- As "gotstamps" noted, contact your Assistant District Representative and have him / her bring along the MOU for Sunday/Holiday Parcel Delivery Work List ( now Step 4 ( S-106)). While in the office, have the ADR ask to see the Office's Volunteer and Non-Volunteer Lists for Sunday parcel delivery per Article 30.2.P ( in part: The Employer WILL make every "reasonable" effort to AVOID requiring substitutes, RCA's, and RCR's NOT ON the list to work ). If manglement can't produce the list(s), grievance time.

-- In the mean time, get a hold of Step 4 ( S-106 ). Search for "Sunday" in RI's KNOWLEDGEBASE Section at the top of the page.

In part: If there is an insufficient number of leave replacements on the Volunteer List, manglement will schedule leave replacements from the Non-Volunteer List, also on a ROTATING BASIS.

-- On the down side, unless you are doing a lot of assistance on other routes in your office, your 3.5 day Aux route should not be nearing 40 hours for the week.

If you get stuck goung to the hub for Amazon make sure your sup. knows you'll be needing a form 1164 for mileage reimbursement to get there. This only applies if the miles to the hub are greater than the miles to your assigned station. You get paid mileage or the difference, both ways.

Charlie Brown. Are you sure of that? Our pm refuses to pay the mileage to the hub for the rcas on Amazon sundays. It is over 15 miles from our office and the subs live on the far side of our office. Anything I can point to regarding that?

Go to the top of this page and click on knowledgebase, then search "Temporary duty station over 50 miles" (don't worry about the 50 mile thing just read the grievance. Print out a few copies and give one to your PM. If the PM doesn't want to pay then grieve.

Go to "Leave replacements" scroll down to "Travel Pay for Sunday AMAZON" under EthelAnnes post is the correct MOU that I printed out and included it with a filled out 1164. I was paid for all my travel miles in December after I was told I wouldn’t be paid. I printed out lots of extras to hand out next time I go to the hub.

Unpopular opinion, but if they are forcing Amazon on anyone, they should force it on everyone (all relief carriers for all offices). If they are forcing it on everyone, I want to know that anyone can also volunteer. I want to know that all the relief carriers are on a list, and that both the volunteer and non-volunteer lists followed as agreed to by labor and management. The fact that one office gets Amazon and six neighboring offices do not shouldn't give the offices that don't more protection from being forced to work Sundays and holidays. There is no perk for working it, and it wasn't asked for.

I read the info in knowledgebase. It says if required to travel to a duty station, my PM says that because I am seeking work (I volunteer to work Amazon Sundays) I am not being required to , then no mileage to and from primary PO.
What say ye now?

Try to un-volunteer and see what happens, all of a sudden you will be voluntold that you will have to work Amazon Sunday's! Maybe that's your answer with your PM, tell him / her to take you off the list then you will paid mileage because you will be seeking the day off. :LOL:
