best practices.....ethics....in uspsfantasyland, never the twain shall meet.

Ha... ethics best practices?!?!  <img title="Surprised" alt="Surprised" src="https://www.ruralmailtalk.ruralinfo.net/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-smileys/sf-surprised.gif" />

How about starting with the basics, like a little honesty and integrity... like during mail counts...  <img title="Confused" alt="Confused" src="https://www.ruralmailtalk.ruralinfo.net/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-smileys/sf-confused.gif" />

After that, maybe think about treating people with a little dignity and respect... a little goes a long way in these areas...  <img title="Wink" alt="Wink" src="https://www.ruralmailtalk.ruralinfo.net/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-smileys/sf-wink.gif" />

The absurdity is having a policy like that in an institution like ours only serves as a buffer that allows unethical behavior to hire in rampant at lower levels, until explicitly questioned, and then they can throw those at the bottom rungs off the ladder, clinging to the self righteous policy even though many above benefited greatly by the cover of policy.  Much like our safety policy vs our actual safety culture.

it makes me happy that the Postal Service wants to think about ethical behavior.

How about we stop promoting people based upon who they are related to or sleeping with. How about asking if they can actually manage?
