Yes, our Auxy has one, and they can run parcels after they're done with the short Auxy Rt.... works well for that...It would be nice at our office to get at least one Van so that during X-mas an RCA's could be schedule for a full days work delivering packages! 8 hours of delivering packages from one of those would be more than enough assistance to cover 4 to 5 routes per Van, per day.
Maybe not. It was originally mentioned in a NALC Facebook over a month ago where they said it was fake.So not fake then?
i have a metris on my 43 mile route when they come get it to service they bring you a piece of junk llv to drivedustydave -- "So that's what they told me when I tried to get a incentive. No dice your route will be getting a vehicle. I have a 90 mile route probably 70 percent gravel in a climate of ice and snow in the winter. Most days a fancy new metris will be fine. But a dozen or so it may not make it. I won't be breaking out my jeep for those days! "
-- Be sure to make the point to manglement that since you are getting a postal-provided vehicle, you WILL be selling you Jeep as soon the the Metris shows up. Well, you don't really have to sell it, but manglement doesn't have to know! Manglement better have a replacement vehicle handy when the Metris experiences difficulties out on your route.
-- Hopefully you have read the postings regarding "O" Time that accumulates when a postal-provided vehicle breaks down.
-- Just exactly how long ago did manglement inform you that a Metris would be placed on your route?
-- With the negative comments about the Metris in winter and gravelly roads, looks as if your members of manglement don't follow this web site.
-- Let us know how the Metris performs on your route.
Meh, I guess I'm just spoiled by my Toyota Estima which is like an aquarium with zero blind spots. Personally I couldn't stand the Metris for anything except low stop apartment routes when I was a sub. The cage, the slippery floor, the crappy tires, etc. I'd rather keep my POV.really,,,,,, i do not find the visibilty bad at all as long as your mirrors are set right i can see everything.
This makes me glad I have to use one of the old scanners o_oMaybe not. It was originally mentioned in a NALC Facebook over a month ago where they said it was fake.
I guess the NRLCA rumor mill is better. With the significant progress on RRECS, and they aggressive negotiating they mention, I should never have doubted it.
