Sorry, I disagree. I've been in the corporate world for most of my working life and have been salaried and successful and happy, as have tens of thousands who worked on my teams. As a manager, I valued my teams and recognized and rewarded their successes. The post office management does neither and they need to go.
A fair evaluation system would be supported by a majority of carriers. If anyone wants to work hourly then work as a city carrier. Or force rural craft to go hourly. It's not up to me but my opinion with reasons thereof are. You said it yourself, MANAGEMENT ABUSE. The problem isn't evaluation system, its the asshat managers who screw employees. THEY need to GO and let us work fairly and equitably.
We have lots of carrier's not being paid for hours worked up to 56. At 56 they send you home. Some carrier's are donating 16 hours every week unpaid labor. Really builds character. And moral.
Standard management lingo.
Of course it's easier to just go hourly. Become a city carrier in essence. Maybe even dump NRLCA and join APWU. Subject to the same rules and restrictions, with city the structure is already in place. Let the rift between management and labor continue as hated opponents. Go to work each day with the attitude "they won't make me do that, I'll grieve."Fair enough but in my estimation pursuing an hourly pay system would be a much easier pursuit than getting rid of abusive management. What vehicle do you do that through? At least with pay, a new Union of employees desiring an hourly wage is easy to achieve. There is a lot of legal protection for workers forming their own Union. USPS couldn't just start firing Carriers for forming a new Union demanding hourly pay for the Rural Craft.
SOME of the loss. You people need mental help, you really do. You have been so conditioned, like animals, which I love very much, I'm vegan, that you put up with torture. Endless rules, split with a razor, just to get fairly compensated. Is that normal to you? Can you see what they have done to you?
City carriers are far from salaried. I've worked city in three offices where they have rurals as well. Every single thing they do at work is on the clock, and they work 8 and that's IT unless they're on the ODL. or mandated by management. The union represents city carriers so they don't have to do anything they aren't absolutely required to do. Again, absolute security of 8 hour days, 5 days a week. Their income is constant but their work is absolute 8 hours. Slow down, call for help, you get it as they won't pay overtime if at all possible. Half the carriers in one of our offices do HALF the work of a rural carrier but get paid for a full day. I want no part of that. If our craft says they do, and it happens, so be it.The clerks and city carriers are essentially salaried. They have rules that provide guarantees to hours worked when scheduled, and even more rules to protect their opportunities to work. Hourly isn’t a total crapshoot, where you lose expectation of earnings. The only thing lost is the crapshoot of counts and terrible mail volume factors that don’t represent the real volatility of work. And the incentive to run endlessly.
Dejoy hasnt lifted a finger to help us. Not sure why you'd put any faith in him... yet.
Truck schedules are the same in our District as they were prior to DeJoy. Actually, everything is the same as before DeJoy,
Every single initiative DeJoy attempted to enact has been frozen or rolled back. The Post Office management, the courts, and external pressure has told him NO CHANGES, STATUS QUO.
I believe workers (carriers, clerks etc.) will win if he's able to make some changes. Major trouble is ALL management and the unions (all of them) are full bore AGAINST him because he threatens to expose every bad manager and all the hiding they've done. He wants most of them to lift, sort, carry instead of sit in an office and dream up new ways to screw and punish carriers using corrupt data and acting like little dictators.
DeJoy has tried. I believe the "Trump" label hung on his neck is a diversion and irrelevant.
I don't believe what a man's enemies say about him, my source is what the man says himself. Judge that. At least you're judging more fairly as they're the man's words, not filtered by others.
OR we could take the current managements' and the unions suggestions and beg for $60 billion and keep everything the same, let the money run out in a few years, and then beg again for more money without ever having to commit to a single impactful change. Change means those who don't do shit are at risk for outplacement. Those who work are candidates for raises, time off, recognition.
And yet you're attributing a bunch of things to him that he's never said. When did he say he was going to expose bad management - or push desk jockeys into lifting, sorting and carrying?
Say what you want, but he WAS given the job because of cronyism. I'm not saying he doesn't deserve a fair shake, but trust and confidence will have to be earned, it's certainly not a given.
All the changes up the chain matter little if the plan is to continue to work us like mules, and not do anything to address the sub crisis.
I don't want you to be against him. But let's not give him credit for work that hasn't been done yet. Again, he hasn't lifted a finger for us. So why people would be enamored with him is also curious.Look, I don't care what people say but they<same shit different year>democrats and fake republicans would not have so viciously attacked if DeJoy wasn't over the target with his reforms. I have a HUGE suspicion that $billions are being laundered through the USPS. WHERE THE HELL IS ALL THE REVENUE GOING???
RCA's like me are driving trucks built in 1991 and you want me to be against DeJoy? Where the fuck is top management funneling all the money? Where is all the money going?? Where?
