You must just be an absolute joy to be around lol.

No we still get the annual increase.

Probably expect the union to call the 72 hour strike notice tomorrow.

Some on-call employees are getting called only once or twice a week at this time of the year, and the union is taking half of their pay cheque away.
Lol. Pretty sure I had 1 shift in July, 3 shifts in Aug, and 3 shifts in Sept (1 of them a 5 hr shift). It should be changed but it's not really the right time to worry about it.

1.5 is really a joke.
Am I the only one feeling sorry about becoming permanent?

No you are not the only one. Most new hires are clueless, and anyone hired before Feb. 1 2013 will take whatever is offered out of fear of losing more than offered. The problem is there is a huge group of people that are not considered equal, anyone hired after Feb 1 2013 is not equal. Hopefully people start to wake up this time around. Its easy for senior co-workers to just take whats handed to them, if this goes for a vote oldtimers will accept because its easy. Just like the easy work they do. Better routes. Inside jobs. RSMC now make more than new hires too! Absolutely a garbage deeply insulting offer. 72 hours? Too bad its not 24 hours notice.

Rsmc just got a 25% hike and now and additional 1.5% every year offered. At the very least increase urban new hires to match 'appendix A' seniority rates even on the new 2nd tier. What a load of BS

I think temp, term, casual are all just different names for the same thing.

Quick question currently been a letter carrier for 11 years. If I transfer to be a part time PO4 and then one day decide to become full time again. Am I able to re contribute those missing hours into my pension?
