    The main problem with the P.O. that isn’t talked about enough is that there are still too many in management with too much downtime.For many years there were many suspect jobs given to “friends” and when the current problems hit,the house of cards fell and the chickens came home to roost.If this isn’t addressed, the workers will be used as scapgoats and will be overburdened with work as usual.This will cause much legit overtime,sick leave and comp time.Then of coarse the workers will be blamed for this.

    Well, if it’s up to the congress to take action on that, we have nothing to worry about!!

    We’re getting this pushed down our throat just like Obamacare.

    There are extra tiers of management that are given tasks that are redundant and not needed. These positions can be eliminated. Also, one of the tiers of management can be eliminated, probably all Area Offices. The line supervisors and all postmasters in offices level 22 and down are overworked, if they are doing their jobs properly. With the requirements dictated to them for mandatory reports and mandatory hours of weekly street supervision their are not enough hours in a day. Non-exempt postmasters are working as many as 12 hours daily to complete the required tasks and of course only getting paid for 8 hours..
