I was talking to a USPS guy on my route today and he informed me of something they have called Penalty Overtime. After 8 hours of work in a day, they get time and half. After 10 hours of work in a day (minus a lunch), USPS employees are compensated at double time. While it would be extremely tough, do you guys think we could potentially negotiate for something similar? I understand that we don't pay a dime for benefits, make more money overall, better pension, etc. But I also understand that this company is only becoming more profitable. It's been peak at my building since 2019. The stock price has almost tripled since 2020. Carol is out for blood this next contract. Wages will stagnate, and if our union lays down again, there will be many more concessions. If we could negotiate double time after 10 hours, how quickly would these penny pinching scumbags hire more people to properly staff the operation? Just an early Saturday morning rant. What do you guys think?
