    A noted point in my last comment, by this evening,
    the Senate Finance Committee will presumably be
    wrapping up their extensive review of the Medicare portion of their "current" House driven "NATIONAL HEALTH CARE PLAN".

    The number's for consideration equal roughly
    42% of the overall compliment. Which severely
    complicates the Medicaid component of the bill.

    See: 1017 pp of.... well, you know.. right?
    H.R. 3200 July 2009

    its all about you, right?

    you can not have split days off, it is not allowed in the contract!! people wake up, the reason the union negotiated the end of split days off was because of abusive managers like the ones in monmouth who had clerks with split days off like tues/fri on tour one. do you want to sign up for that? only if you are a loner or an idiot!

    not allowed in the clerk craft CBA!read your contrast!

  • Reply to: Should the Postal Service Eliminate Sunday Mail Processing Operations?   5 years 5 months ago

    you got that right brother, but the problem that they face is the consecutive days off in the CBA, they would have to redo everything in the plants and would need more people to staff the rest of the week.

    they are too busy prosecuting all the thieving managers all around the country, especially the one that was running your place for awhile until he got kicked out and forced to retire and now he is going to jail, there are a lot more of these hypocrits around!!

    Not in my office, only the "select" few get away with that...and that's when there is work to do! Management looks the other way, while the other clerks carry the load..they (management) are not doing their jobs, which is to manage the employees...might as well be sitting in their office reading the news...or talking to their friends on the phone..or having the clerks deal with customer complaints/delivery problems...oh...oops...that right...that is what they are doing...and getting their bonuses....hmm

    Because 95% (or more) of customers will go with the cheapest way.

    I'm not totally prepared to furnish a comprehensive
    comment on this issue. Moreover, it's not simply a
    matter of "cutting" a day based on the 24 hr clock
    strategic operations model.

    After I complete an analysis of an interesting economic report I'm reading, I can better respond.

    But, first it is necessary to examine a compelling problem associated with the current employment structure, and associated collective bargaining mechanisims in place.
    Then, consider the current employment numbers as
    identified in the September newsletter, from which I
    have derived the following hypothetical yet reasonable
    scenario;

    On any given day, The USPS employs (est) 767,000 people, of which potentially 225,000 are off sick, plus an additional 100,000 on either "light duty", "disability", or workers "comp".

    Now, fill in the daily operations blanks with the remaining compliment of employees whom don't actively handle mail, or operations thereof......

    I agree...cancel Sat. operations in processing plants...mail doesn't get anywhere and would make more work for Sun premium pay

    "DPS mail is picked up by the carrier on the way to the vehicle and does not need additional manual sorting. The purpose of the DPS program is to reduce the amount of time carriers spend in the office manually sorting letters, thereby reducing cost and improving accuracy and speed of delivery.".......that must not be a universal idea, heck in our office management allows culling of DPS(before routes are pulled down). Some carriers will finger every piece, removing the bad(sometimes upwards of a half hour),this practice has gone on for years. Don't even question 3rd bundle ads which are cased in by some the morning they go out. My point is with most posts so eager to belittle management, who's at fault here? Management for allowing it or the carriers who do it on their own accord. There was a time I really liked my job, but not when both parties are guilty in my book for not trying to insure the longevity of the postal service. My username says it all.

    Funny you should ask about Sunday. All the presentations I have seen for 5 day delivery show a removal of Saturday and most of Sunday operations. The USPS is not proposing a 6 day week but a 5 day week and that is unacceptable to the customers

  • Reply to: Should the Postal Service Eliminate Sunday Mail Processing Operations?   5 years 5 months ago

    Somebody FINALLY is making sense. There is not enough mail on Sundays to justify working. The post office could save ALOT of money by cutting Sunday premiums this way. I say GO FOR IT. The sooner the better/split off days or not!

  • Reply to: Mystery Shoppers   5 years 5 months ago

    get rid of this ridiculous program and let the clerks ..who know their customers do their job without mgmt trying to control things they do not understand
    THIS IS A WASTE OF REVENUE

  • Reply to: Should the Postal Service Eliminate Sunday Mail Processing Operations?   5 years 5 months ago

    Hey you guys are missing the baot if you cut anything make it SATURDAY. Sunday processing customers get mail the next day.....

  • Reply to: Should the Postal Service Eliminate Sunday Mail Processing Operations?   5 years 5 months ago

    if you don't like tour 2, then how about bidding on another tour so someone who appreciates those hours and are hard to come by can spend quality time with their families the rest of the week!

  • Reply to: Should the Postal Service Eliminate Sunday Mail Processing Operations?   5 years 5 months ago

    the plant that I work in has more mail than we can handle so if we didnt process mail on saturday night we would have a to work at least 12 hours on sunday night to get the mail out monday morning. We already lack the manpower to get the mail out on time anyway.

  • Reply to: Should the Postal Service Eliminate Sunday Mail Processing Operations?   5 years 5 months ago

    I have been following everyones comments and have not seen anyone address the use of part-time help in smaller po's(aka. RCA's,TRC's) doing clerial work(am distribution, box mail,everything but working the window. As a rca in this office, I am not going to begruge any sub time in this economy. But, when you have subs who are recieving in excess of 30 hrs a wk or more, one has to wonder why a dist clerk or window clerk has not been assigned?

    With the abudance of labor resources that are avalible to the USPS, I have to question the motives and practices of these pm's.

  • Reply to: Should the Postal Service Eliminate Sunday Mail Processing Operations?   5 years 5 months ago

    Yes, Sunday, all day, 24/7, the USPS Mail Processing Operaton should be eliminated. I couldn't agree more for the ability to attend church services free of exhaustion and strengthening of family time. Please, why the continued need for 24 hour operations all around the country? Could this not also be streamlined to only a few plants [lessening the need to keep so many plants open 24/7]--BUYOUT! Big Savings Here...Certainly, more efficiency, streamlining of operations and elimination of repetition of jobs will cut 24/7 operations which has made the USPS too big, in some cases--expenses hard to control, and has the service out of step with the 21st century. I beg to differ...old 24/7 USPS operations can be streamlined to 21st century standards; thereby, saving tons of money. Just because something has been done for x amount of time the same way with the same results does not mean that it has to always be done the same way. If the clog is broken...what is so wrong if we fix it? Why not Saturday, also...Anybody!

    Because of excessing and route adjustments our office can't handle the fall volume. Ads to be delivered by 9-11-09, gaylords dated so you know which Monday the tag is for and 2 full cages of 3rd class letters just sitting for 2 weeks. Shame on us! We need to add a Sunday crew. 9/23/2009
