ok. pardon me if i should not be on here. i am not a ups worker. i am a usps rural mail carrier. i am appealing to you guys and gals as fellow union workers. we are doing mail count right now...two week evaluation of our route volume and miles etc...it determines a rural carrier's pay. prior to count, i was averaging 150-200 packages a day. during the count (past 7 days) I am averaging 60/day. This is less than half. Where did they go? management has many tricks they use to decrease mail volume. they "accidentally" send mail to the wrong office...hide junk mail, discourage companies from sending ads during count...push a lot out before count and hold as much as they can until after. but how are they decreasing the package/parcel count? are you guys getting more? we often carry some of your packages and i havent been seeing them. fed ex or dhl either. today i had 44 packages. this is b.s. any ideas?
