So if you are FT LC for 3 years and change to FT PO4 do you go back down to 1st year PO4 pay rate?

Hell, I have to file a grievance because these idiots keep moving the goalposts about what constitutes my annual pay increase. A calendar year doesn't seem to cut it.

I'm not sure about changes from Group 1 to Group 2. I believe basic pay is the same, minus HH bonuses for inside workers.

The issue is that on the now 7 year climb to top rate, the Post Office will try to delay your yearly increase and explain it away with gibberish.

Your probably at the bottom of the list, in some places theres almost 200-300 people on the list that get called in order of seniority

So do on-call plant workers get uniforms after the 480 hour probation period?
Also is anyone here a MSC? How do you like it? Is there a weekend only shift for MSC?

Casuals get called 7 days a week, until you accept 5 shifts, then eclipse won't contact you anymore. Many of them accept Monday-Friday, so they don't get called on the weekend which results in the lower seniority casuals getting called in Saturday/Sunday.

What sucks is some people only get 3-4 shifts a month during non-peak season, then the union takes its cut ~$85, which doesn't leave employees much. Should be a % of your pay check that determines how much the union deducts.

Do you use EpsomGel on those hurting legs before or after a good day work?
Do Epsom stuff help a lot? My entire body is just aching these days and my will to walk during personal time has diminished significantly.

Anyone had experiences carryover vacations to the next calendar year in CPC? Im asking because I never bid on vacations after promotion, I'm a fulltime relief LC, so I'm wondering if CPC allow employees to carryover their vacations.

CUPW President has supported the % based union dues, but there’s a process to it. Hopefully this is what happens in the future.
