    MyTripisCut “They” are coming for us.

    We have one that gets between 800-1100 pcs per day. It’s a massive post office, but when a bulk van is backing up to it makes you wonder.

    Last couple of weeks they’ve been using Surepost as a release valve. Basically on heavy days they divert 100% of it to the USPS.

    Asked the union about that and their response was that the union has asked about holding volume back to give us a chance to rest....guess that’s their response.

    U-hauls all getting between 1000-2000 pieces a day to each individual post office.

    Jakamoe I pick up box, I put it down

    Does this mean if they add 1 22.4 job, they have to add 3 22.3 drivers? Or can they use existing 22.3 drivers and reach the 25% limit first?

    Ex. Part timer next on list gets 22.4. But the next 3 under him get 22.3.
    Or
    Next 15 guys go 22.4 because they haven't reached their 25% limit.
     
  6. Once they go over the 25% of 22 .4 drivers, if they want to add any more 22.4 drivers they have to add three RPCD drivers for every 22.4 position they create

    It also stares they can negotiate with the union for a higher percentage.
     
  8. Oh yes they could do that but why would the Union let them do that unless they got something really good in return?

    Are you seriously stating that you'd rather deliver a 60lb table vs allowing the mailman to take it?
     
  10. We may not like delivering it but it's our job, should we add sources to someone else?

    No but if we're keeping the table why not also keep everything else? Why include the post office at all?

    Yea true, give all our volume to the post office.
     
  13. No argument for me

    I'm not saying give them all our volume but why just the light items? There have been times I delivered a 50lb box to the same address as usps while they were delivering a little white Amazon bag, surepost.

    I’d sure hope they’d never do that but the allure of more pension contributions is quite the draw.
     
  16. That's how we got the 22.4 jobs in the first place.
    Too many underfunded pension plans

    It's about accountability. The simplest way to explain is this. We get fired if we dont follow the rules. So bust their head every time they dont.

    No not even close. Read article 22.

    For one 22.4s count towards the amount of jobs they have to hire for 22.3s.
