Not necessarily, supervisor's main directive is to reduce OT. So they will first extend any permanent part-timers to 8 hours if extra work is present. Then they will bring in temps. Temps are usually assigned to do a walk, they won't part out a walk on OT before bringing in a temp if they can help it. After long weekends they always bring in a couple of extra temps to fill the gaps for parcel milk runs etc.

Then any extra work that arises throughout the day will be offered on OT by the emergency OT list or 17.04 if they can.
It's much cheaper to pay a temp or offering someone over time.


Union would say otherwise.

Its not always cheaper to bring in a temp if they take 8 hours to do a split..which is not unheard of when they are fresh.

Well as far as I know....

All new hires that started Dec 2017 are FULL time LC now at my station.
Also, where I am in Toronto, we are always short on staff.... so I dont know why they dont call temps..
must be nice although I don't know how anyone can live off 19 bucks an hour in TO..I would be logging tons of OT just to pay rent lol

As per the cba they can't just bring temps in all willy nilly, if they have "extra" work they need to offer it in the form of OT to full timers.
This.

But.........

Nobody says a word, so they continue to abuse the collective agreement. There's only been one station that I've been to that actually kept the sups to the book. If they did something out of line, they grieved it. It works.

We've been getting them since February. In a foot walk station. With limited relay boxes.
My red dot recruitment game is tight.

Bankers are all crooks anyways. The only time I go into mine is to renew my mortgage. I don't care who I bank with as long as they're insured. If it brings in revenue, I don't have a problem with it.

Ain't most Post offices in urban areas are franchise staffed? I can't recall any RPO in my city except at the depot that are still owned and staffed by CPC.

I think the postal banking effort will be aimed more at rural areas that are under-serviced by banks.

If CUPW cannot manage millions of dues so we can have a decent strike fund I’m very leary of any other involvement with my money.

More like billions, or hundreds of millions at least since the last lockout.

They’re hands will be all over the setup and operation. No thanks it’ll be an unmitigated disaster.
