Strangely enough, it’s not in those words. It’s implied since the grievance was about mgmt forcing DPS last.Typical NRLCA.
"Management does not have the right to require rural carriers to case DPS letter mail in any other particular order."
The article says they can require Dps 1st if carrier chooses to case it. But not last.
"But not last"
Where is that specifically stated in the actual step 4?
I routinely get oos and Dps for other routes in my DPS trays. So screw sequence, I case everything, speed comes with practice. We also routinely have to go back out after finished for late pkgs.There has always been the choice by mgmt to have carriers case first class residual letter's prior to any other mail. But, I guess, they are self admitting the DPS is received in no better sortation sequence by their machines than regular old mixed, residual letters
They message us on the scanner and tell us to come back and pick up expresses.. pay regulars 2nd trip. Most of the packages are actually due the next day too.Well, I sincerely hope you are requesting additional hours pay for return trip on late pkgs. That is not second trip pay at 2 minutes a mile, that is actual time and mileage. Second trip only applies when all mail is available and can not fit in first load.
All kinds of wrong. Management is absolutely, positively not permitted to contact you on your route unless it is a dire emergency (ice age fast approaching or Oz is imminent).They message us on the scanner and tell us to come back and pick up expresses.. pay regulars 2nd trip. Most of the packages are actually due the next day too.
