I don't get how they can say $#!+ is retroactive, and then not include the whole period that we missed previously... to me, they're just a bunch of shell-game playin' lying bastids... bait and switch...
How hard would it have been to look at what the NALC has as a schedule for their Table 2 peeps and get the same for our peeps??? Didn't they *SAY* they were gonna get what the NALC already had??? Again, they're just a bunch of bait and switch lying bastids... just sayin'...
We don’t want arbitration. It’ll end with table 5 and us throwing parcels for the clerks a hour before our routes every morning.I would do a "yes" vote.
My reasoning: a financial collapse is near. The elite wealthy are predominantly Democrat. Funny how a few months before the 08 election the hit the fan. Why would it be any different?
A no vote will be arbitration, the market will crash fall of 2020 to make sure no Trump re election, and we will conceed all in arbitration as the USPS goes under.
I disagree. Historically Arbitrators have compared contracts to the other crafts.I am voting yes, it’s not perfect by any means. You are not getting a better deal in arbitration guaranteed and you can kiss table 2 ever being equal too table 1 goodbye forever. I am table 1.
I had waited for to see like most my vote will be NO I am on table one so not much harm for me except the determine of mail count? Do you think the nice PO is going to work with our Union on a mail count after they have screwed us every year, all of a sudden they are going to play nice? Not to mention give the step 2 a doggie bone in 15 years, and the RCA's going to other stations, please when we have to bring them in now they make a mess of things can't imagine what it will be like with so many bouncing around untrained on our routes, our service is already falling because of this very reason.Screwed us on first COLA. Instead of starting at Jan. 2018 skipped to April 2018. 645 down to 229!
Table 2 is longer time to reach top step. Table 1 12.4 years: Table 2 14 years.
Watch APWU get a better deal for their Table 2 peeps in arbitration... I figure they'll come out closer to what the NALC already has... which is what the NRLCA *SAID* they were going to get for you... can anybody say... liar, liar, pants on fire...I disagree. Historically Arbitrators have compared contracts to the other crafts.
Maybe an Arbitrator would make Table 2 12.4 years ( like every The NALC and NRLCA Table 1) instead of 14 years
Maybe an Arbitrator would keep the COLA time frame the same as the other postal unions vs. the giveaway from the NRLCA ( to the tune of $400 for a 40K).
I am with you on this, the fight is within me. I grow angry every day to every week at how our situation continues to deteriorate and no hope for better. This contract is a joke with not solving any major issues.Say no... Go to arbitration...Lose in arbitration...then work to rule....no rushing, grieve every damn instance, make life miserable.. If we are to get frigged... then share the pain...
