Report answer

Listen to the employees. Nepotism, bullying and abuses by management are rampant on the workroom floor. All reports are falsified to make the person above them look good. Mail is thrown out, instead of giving clerks/carriers time to sort and deliver it. Everyone who speaks up is harassed and targeted until fired on lies or quit. The lowest level employees, care the most and are treated the worst.

Take the fraud from Red books away easy! Millions of stamps not being scanned! They are reusable when going throw app machine at the plant! Plus you have car washes, vacant homes, seasonal homes and burger king being counted in the red books! I could go on!

Working as a Holiday Clerk I learned first hand how some operations are organized. Some people packages were lost because of a little disorganization. I think when it comes to people's packages that's first priority. Usps should build locked cabinets or closets where people packages are stored and documented and labeled in more detail. People spend money on packages and money to have them delivered so it's our responsibility to handle those packages with care as if it was our own. These locked cabinets or shelves closets with detail info will help better organize and prevent theft and ensure accountability. Each employee who signs them in to the cabinet and remove them should include their info and when removing each package have an electronic finger remote that allows access. And kind of just like the airport laws no piggy backing

As a former RCA, I think its important to be supportive of employees by giving them the opportunity to get to know the routes they will have to carry. For example, let them come in earlier to case and pull down, so they will be able to finish on time without added stress of making truck!

Have postal vehicles for every rural route. It should not be the responsibility of the employee to provide a vehicle for the post office. At least for the first 90 days after someone is hired they should be excluded from working Mondays or days after holidays. Rcas should get off days or sick days for so many hours worked. An incentive program for rcas who come in when called but no punishment for those who cant. Have an understanding that when you work people below 40hrs a week they will more than likely have to get a 2nd job and they can't leave that job at a moment's notice to go deliver mail especially when they weren't scheduled that day.

Do not reserve your career opportunities to veterans only. There are many people out there like me who wants to work and see the US mail service as a good opportunity to do it, but, every time I try, it seems that a veteran would take away it from me. :(

I think every post office should have some type of postal vehicle available for the rural carriers to use. They are equipped with RHD and you don’t have to worry about destroying your own personal vehicle. Also, I work at a post office that requires you to use your own vehicle and they way I have to sit I can’t use my seat belt. That seems like a major safety issue to me.
