Our station doesn't do those daft phone calls. thank God, so I see what you mean then. But I have no problem with them having my cell# when it comes to a safety issue like this.timetotellthetruth wrote: ↑Jan 13th, 2018 2:49 amBecause it is none of their business. If they want to contact you on your personal cell phone, they should be providing us with them. That is why they are supposed to use Jabber. You wouldn't believe the amount of times I have heard stories of people being called for ridiculous questions. There is very little worse than having your hands full of mail, while walking a loop, in -30 weather, the phone rings, you scramble to put the mail somewhere, take off your gloves, unzip your coat to get your phone, and there is a ding dong on the other end, calling to ask if "you remember delivering a parcel to someone the other day" or something equally important that can wait until you get back.
Also, what an incredible waste of time to call everybody to come back, one at a time. The supervisors can send out "group messages" to entire depots at once, to go to all the pdt's, where you have to view the message before it lets you use the pdt again. Probably didn't use that system, because they are clueless....
We were told yesterday morning to make sure we were logged into Jabber, as that's how they would be communicating the message. But that is kind of flawed coz a lot of people can barely use the PDT and may not get the message.
You're able to call 911 on the PDTs so perhaps they should make them able to receive calls from specific numbers too.
