    So you think Sunday volume will be a Premium service? Just like Saturday Air?

    Time will tell? They have centers don't go out on Saturdays. According to this site. It's all going to the post office a surepost.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    You can pull any oversized or overweight package and bring it back.

    Have done it a few times. Was also told I would be fired if I didn’t leave at the post office but I’m still here

    All our PT drones refuse to sign the bid sheet. They’re hiring full time off the street drones at our center.

    Once etailers know UPS is offering guaranteed Sunday delivery, they will start to adjust their shipments accordingly.

    Surepost has been increasing like crazy, the amount I deliver to the post office. I have also noticed that some of the surepost is for businesses, which is against the contract.

    Is this worth fighting over? The language for surepost in the contract is too loose and my union representation is so weak.
    Looking for some advice...it seems the stewards are in bed with supervisors...same with BA so what would be in my best interest?

    Thought the same thing but it does not mention the commercial aspect just the size and weight.

    I'd still file everytime I saw it. Put pressure on your BA.

    Yeah take a picture of the tracking number. Write it down and file. That’s what we were told at least

    Good point. Another reason why you should always and "add all applicable" to every grievance.

    Yes, but the language in the contract about stopping its progression doesn't mention commercial stops.

    I agree a grievance should be filed but stopping the progression may open a member up to discipline is all I'm saying.
