    WHEN THEY AGREE AND IMPLENMENTED AND FIND OUT THEY HAVE TO CUT ROUTES THEY STOP AS ALWAYS. IF THEY TREATED EVERYBODY LIKE HUMANS EVERYTHING WOULD RUN SMOOTH.BUT THEY ARE OVER WORKED AND SOMETIMES THEY HAVE TO PUT DOWN THEIR COFFEE.

    There is a reason we should count every piece and count every step in a route adjustment. I have carried for just under 21 yrs and our 46 city routes are a mess because we keep estimating, measuring, and flat out guessing “Data”.

    …and by we I mean they.

    Why the Union wants to be a partner in this abortion is beyond me. Once they partner to adjust routes, there is nothing to grieve. It is their mail, their trucks, their rules. When they make mistakes, there is a mechanism to correct it. When the Union partners with management, the carrier is screwed.

    They will never get this right I had an 8.5 hour route and after they counted it they shifted all my light stops and gave me all heavy volume areas and I ended up with a 9.5 hour route. I have carried mail for almost 30 years and do not understand why you would treat a dedicated carrier this way.
    Don’t try to tell me they aren’t trying to push us out! The whole USPS is going to be made up of CCAs.

    JRAP is a joke ….As soon as management doesn’t get the numbers they want from this they will stop and the union will do nothing…AGAIN !

    I have to be honest. Our recent inspection yielded a 30 minute reduction for my route. I do it by the book daily taking lunches and breaks, as well as following safety procedures. I stood up to their pressure, I didn’t fold to the bully, and now I have a fairly adjusted route. All the carriers who skip lunches out of fear and intimidation now have been added to and now have to run even harder. It’s what you make of it.

    That’s what also happened to me now I have over 1200 stops. Cause of territory shifts. My rt was 8.5 now over 9. Mix of mounted. Cbu and businesses.

    Just an observation on the whatever RAP. I went through four of these and watched the route that had been substantially the same for 20 years slowly disappear. The last adjustment completed the destruction, not a single original stop left. No I’m not a fan. I do not believe Union participation accomplishes anything. We forfeit our right to grieve. All is put on local teams who had little actual inspection and adjustment experience. They accepted managements data as fact. The carrier input was a joke. The issue was already decided. The net effect of this route churning is to destroy the bond a regular has with the customer and to destroy the seniority system. It brought scorn on our local Union leaders who were stuck with the program. I have since retired and wish you actives the best with this new version. No I’m not a fan.
