Relax the 2080 issue if regulars are required to work relief days for OT.
All OT gets paid back before the guarantee period ends by keeping (rural) carriers home for the remainder of the guarantee period.
Properly evaluate routes instead of late February/early March- slowest volume of the year. Then they keep a boot on the throat when you can’t make the real volume of the route. And those overages are also paid back before the guarantee period ends. I’m sitting home for a month and would be on LWOP if I didn’t have leave time to cover it.
The management gets it both ways and the Union negotiated it.
With Amazon, the rural need to go hourly.

Show more concern for the workers well being. Dont allow management to bully the CCA'S. Get managers that have people skills and some sense of understanding of what it's like to adjust to this type of work. Stop expecting new people to work like seasoned carriers. And most importantly, train people more . 3 days is not long enough to learn anything!

Have better people skills & better office organization. Take accountability for their poor CCA manageability. Making sure vehicles are in good & safe running condition , provide CCA with route map, & any other helpful material or info that would help CCAs be successful in meeting job requirements (probation period) USPS spends a lot of money to train us yet it seems office management doesn’t care they seem to blame the CCA for any negative results. Out of 8 CCAs only two remain in our office...I would think that the Postmaster would be asking “what’s wrong with that picture”
