Addresses are hard..…
The flyer money goes to the route owner of the term or OR/VR fails to sign for it. Unless staffing is on the ball and knows what you covered.

I’m kind of going off the ball recently. I’ve had three misdelivered packets in the last 2 weeks (one in the wrong building, two in the wrong slot) after none before that in 9 months.

Any tips for keeping on top of this? I’ve no idea why I’m suddenly slipping. If anything I’m way more organized and less hectic than when I started. I do have some rough seasonal allergies but I can see fine. Does anyone have tips for quickly double checking? I was thinking of reading addresses out loud as I put them in.

I’m living in fear right now of being on the report again in the morning. My supervisor I has been motivational so far but I’m pretty sure that will change soon.

Not that I agree with it AT ALL, but hasn't this happened for at least 2 years previously on Labour Day weekend?

Do it all in one day and book the OT.

Use a pen or marker and write the unit # on the packet.

I don't get it either with these circs only coming in September why two days? Regardless thanks CUPW! I recently got lucky and signed into a new route with only 405 doors.. It's a long walk but in a nice area where only half of the people want circs. For years now I'v been doing routes with +1500 poc and I was just getting fed up with preparing thirds of 500+ doors.

Im an oct 2017 casual at the gateway plant. We're all getting two days a week (saturday and sunday).

i just saw a posting on indeed for postal clerks for mississauga, 87 vacancies. What the heck is going on that they are looking for 87 more casuals when current ones are just getting called twice a week?

My guess is to fill the casual list again because there was a promotion spree a few months ago.
AFAIK, some casuals are still getting called daily at Gateway - to a maximum of 5 days/week.

That's fine with me. I will take the easy OT for compressed flyer, maybe take an extra section too. Collate my flyers in double time afterwards.

And I will still have my personal days left when my bigger paycheque comes in! :)

I wonder where does the flyer money go if a letter carrier forgets to sign the book for it?
Sign for everything (before you even start sorting). Don't think for one minute the person entering the information will know to put your name down. They keep telling us when we scan the barcodes its automatic which is BS. I own my own route and I still fill them out even if it said 1.

Also if you own a route and started the flyer on Thursday and get it all done in the 2 days (so you can have them cleaned up for your relief while you go on holidays) fill it out too. The end date which is the Monday, the person that fills it in will almost likely give the whole amount to the relief that starts your route on the Monday since that is the end date.
