May Meeting 2023

A large turnout at the most recent meeting. 22 people attended the meeting including many new faces. Thanks for those who took time out of their day to join in on the discussions.

We have a couple Conferences coming up in the near future. The Regional Conference will be in Albuquerque June 8th through the 11th and the State Convention will be held in Pueblo June 29th through July 2nd. We will keep you posted on the events and what we learn from these events.

During the meeting we talked about requesting a copy of your OPF. You have the right to request your OPF and we suggest that you should periodically do so.

There was lots of talk about using MDD-IO scanners instead of the swipe readers for clocking in and out as well as moving to proper operations. If you have any issues with this change, let us know. We have had reports of many issues so far and need to grieve all issues that arise in your office.

We once again had no winner in the attendance drawing. We drew a name of a member and they were not in attendance. That means that next meeting will have a prize pool of $300. Make sure you come to the meeting so that you can keep us informed about the issues in your office, as well as have a chance to win some money.

If you have issues with customer service in your offices, let us know. We are trying to make sure that the customers get the service they deserve. We need to do all we can to provide good service and a positive experience for our customers.

We also talked about TACs being done by managers. If you have a Lead Clerk in your office, they should be doing the TACs for all employees in your office. If not, we are working on rectifying this in all of our offices. We have won this work back and need to make sure that it is being performed by Clerks. There are many instances of management falsifying clock rings. If we have Clerks doing this, we can assure the Crafts that qualified people who care are taking care of these crucial functions.

March 2023 Membership Meeting

Congratulations to the E-Board that was formally elected. The board will stay the same with the addition of Tim Pearson as the new Maintenance Craft Director. Welcome to the team Tim, and thank you.

Lots of offices are having issues with supervisors or other Craft employees doing their work. make sure we are filing for every minute.

Covid is hurting many offices. Attendance policies are making people come to work even when they are sick. stay home if you are sick especially if you have Covid or symptoms.

Employees are getting 30/60/90 day reviews where supervisors are lazily falsifying them by saying employees are “unsatisfactory” just so they have room for improvement…. Let us know if you are experiencing this in your office this is absurd and only hurts morale in offices.

In a turn of events that nobody could predict, we have new Meeting Pool Champion. Shari and some guy named Roger showed up and went undefeated to claim the title. who knows how long they will stay on top.

Kenny racks again after another devastating loss

Hostile Work Environments Escalating

We have had a lot of recent hostile work environments in our offices. These should not be tolerated by management. Every employee has the right to go to work and feel safe as well as work in an environment free from harassment. Recently we have found out that management will ignore this issues unless it gets outside the Postal Service. Because of this, I have found that Anne Landman is a great resource to get Postal Issues out to the community. The community is very interested in stories about the Postal Service. We should take advantage of this. If you are having issues involving harassment or hostility in your office, reach out to Anne Here.

USPS Shipping Equity Act

Will you call your senators to support the USPS Shipping Equity Act?
The USPS is banned from shipping alcohol while private shippers make large profits from its delivery. The Act would end the ban, boosting postal revenue.

Dial (844) 402-1001 to be connected to your senator’s office.

Pool Champion

2nd Bi-Monthly Pool Champions are Roger Daniels and Michael Willard

Despite looking as if they were trying to lose at times, in fact they often times looked like they didn’t know how to play at all, they were able to easily win 8 out of 10 matches to take a 2nd Championship in a row.

Shari Flory and Shane McDonnell did not stand a chance and even their alternate player Ian was not match for the champions.

Pool Champion

1st Bi-Monthly Pool Champions are Roger Daniels and Michael Willard

You both have proven your worth by using your skills such as ”tappy tappy” to devour all competition that got in their way.

Congratulations to Shari Flory and Shane McDonnell despite being the team with the largest fan base (Jenny) they over thought their shots in the final round .
