Also we are NOT tax payer supported. We do not need this proposal of a 10 billion government bail out. What we need is a restructure of our mandated pre payment of retirees benifits 75 years into the future program. A program mandated by Congress in 2006. Lets get this done first and see where the organization goes.
We as rural carriers have been taking paycuts for several years due to loss of volume and automation.A lot of us now work 6 days a week to make what we used to in 5 days. Funny how our ego manical Postmaster General stated to a group of NYC Postal employess that he would never take a pay cut. Why isn't Congress looking into the overstaffing of upper and middle management?Oct 13, 2011
Never tried arbitration in the last 10 years? What a lie. The last rural contract in 2006 was settled with arbitration. We are headed there again this December, along with the City Carriers. Get your facts straight Mr. Patterson.
While UPS and FED EX have lower labor costs as companies, they also have a smaller work force delivering their products. On a pay scale based on individual earnings they make as much as we do per hour. They also have profit sharing for their employees. The extra monies these companies make go into shareholders pockets and their executives. While any profits the USPS generates goes back to Congress and the American people as a whole not a select few share holders. Oct 13, 2011
