You are working as a relief carrier. Reliefs (FT or terms covering relief assignments) get paid a buck extra over LCs on long term assignments.
What exactly makes you a relief? Ive been on a long term assignment (I think) since October but only got the pay increase the last two checks.

For sure we'll have to pay it back, but they may try and and get back 80hrs. We'll see when the next folk retire.
I just checked my stub and it works out to 70.5 hours for me. My inital thought is that maybe it has something to do with the fact we actually get paid on a Thursday (4 work days in that one week), but then it should still come out to be 72 hours. I am sure that the union will be getting inquiries once those pay stubs are sent out....

The minimum wage for a relief letter carrier has been $20.40 since February 1 of 2017. I would go talk to a staffing supervisor to find out what is going on. Please let us know what you find out.

Are you a permanent employee? Did you bid on a position?
You could be unassigned and backfilling a vacant route.
If you are permanent you can bid for a route, or for a relief position (OR or VR).

yea I misread somewhere that we would be getting a extra pay in Jan,but if this is the case that everyone is losing out on 10 hours thats pretty messed up. Although looking again at my stub, I have a lot less deductions and only paid $5.44 into my pension..

Just received my latest pat statement. I'm a Temp PO4 started in late October, I have been getting my pay cheque deducted every month for $79.35 and for some(?) reason, my latest pay cheque got deducted $86.35 for union due and another $7.00 for "CUPW Dues Arrears"?

What the actual ****? If I only get call/accept one assignment, I am basically working for the union for free?
Yes.

I should've just stayed home.

Oh dear. I am going to assume this is going to be talked about at a weekly mini/safety meeting.

I feel awful for the family of that poor woman. I've worked at the station the truck (presumably) came from; and also feel for the LC who was driving.

We've all had our share of near misses, I'm sure. I know I have.

Not to capitalize on a tragedy, but stress; overwork and unrealistic deadlines plus working in the dark make it more likely that
accidents will happen, both on the road and off.

Stay safe out there, brothers and sisters.

Then you must be covering relief position.

Good - you're getting an extra $1/hour
Bad - you could be covering different walk every day.

Relief only gets paid $0.53 to $0.57 more than regular...not exactly a windfall lol...with all the grind & grief that goes with it!
