The Postal Service compromised their delivery standards last year when the first class committment went from 1-2 days to 4-5 says. And they didn’t even reduce the price to customers.

Save money? When they have supervisors that have less than a week in the service and are promoted to “204B status” and not even career and have no idea how the mail flows or even works, that is an issue. Especially, when they do get promoted to full supervision and still have no idea how it works because all they know and rely upon is what their bosses tell them to do. When they become the boss, then all they do is look at moving up the ladder without any regard as to how to actually perform the job they… Read more »

The real cuts should come at the district office level. We get blasted with so many ridiculous and irrelevant emails daily. Huge waste of time for us and them, because nothing gets communicated to us in a timely manner. Hire a true computer programming company to create one program that spits out a report card for each post office daily and you don’t need so many people at the district office doing this. Squeeze that level for a while. USPS has squeezed the crafts in the trenches long enough.

Maybe we need to go back to the manuals and work the mail the way its supposed to be the FIRST TIME. working the mail 2-10 times doesn’t pay. Having mailing come through that are not properly prepared ( ie backward sequenced) or having the plants throw sequenced mailings on the flat sorters then carriers have to case everything.

” Rising employee salaries???????????? Are you freaking kidding??? I don’t remember the last time I’ve seen COLA or a raise on my check. I’m sure the salaries have risen for the big shots who sit on their asses making stupid financial decisions and handing us more work all the time. Oh boy, does this crap just set my teeth on edge. I could go on and on but it just doesn’t matter anymore and it’s not worth the wasted breath. It is no longer a fun job or a job to be proud of.
