I really shouldn’t be reading things like this. This is the 2nd post today I’ve seen carriers getting 10,0p0-17!000 for going over..... y’all are really giving me reasons to actually slow down.... I don’t foresee corona Christmas loosing up on us before real Christmas hits us..... so maybe, just maybe..... I’m no runner, but I do try to beat eval.....It's not unheard of for mgmt to bring in assistance from far away, even out of state. They can house for 30 days and rotate as they find willing bodies to work. Last Christmas they brought in carriers to assist in Seattle, San Francisco, Denver, Tahoe and Reno that I know of. Cca's and rcas were brought from other states to give relief to locals. It can be done.
They can also pay a premium if deemed necessary. During the shale boom USPS paid $5 hour over the going rca rate to find workers. The union should be having Area level talks about this large of an affected workforce. This needs much higher than DR to resolve.
If I was working hundreds of hours over my guarantee, I'd work until the first pay period after the new g year. If I'm going to quit, I'm going to turn it to my advantage as much as possible. Two weeks before election I'd skedaddle. With a huge " here's your lottery check" grin!
There is a formula to figure out your hourly vs salary rate. A carrier in Montana, I believe, walked away 4 years ago with $17000 from recalculated pay. Not certain it truly compensated for the poor quality year they lived through, but it helped.
Y’all are putting bad thoughts in my narrow mind.....
