Bonus Question: What craft?

I will guess $160K mailhandler.

However, the most for the least is probably a $58K custodian working 1/2 of their full-time hours and getting $80K extra in grievance money for work no one did.

Amusing. I know quite a few mail handlers that made right around 160k but a couple of clerks who made damn near 200k last year but the question was for 2018 so... I’ll guess the number is around 170-180k?

How much overtime would even an topped out (level and step) clerk or mail-handler have to work to get that much? You would have to LIVE at work!

I have heard about a mailhandler in another facility who made big bucks, relatively speaking.

Not verified -- rumored.


Heard it from a number of people... And there's like a $25K range.

It's not verified, after all. So, you know.



Hey, if somebody is given the year-round opportunity to work 7 x 16 or whatever, including holidays. And they take it?

Who cares!


And shouldn't they be fairly compensated for it?

Probably not a very enjoyable life, though.


And yes, I've heard that management may be looking to crack down on that.

Sounds like a worker shortage, to me. What else is new?


Question to the OP: What's your motivation for starting this thread?

A mailhandler on our dock made 140K, I'm the expediter and made 103K. Both of us are topped out on pay scale.He worked mostly 12 hours, me very few.

Absolutely. Per hour, prorated for time actually working, custodians win hands down.
I've seen some insane Line H settlements.

How is that possible? Even with an enormous grievance payout.

What's even more amazing about these Line H payouts is that the behavior by management that led to them has not been stopped or even addressed. What outfit that wants to operate as a "business" would ever accept that from it's lower managers?

I'm sure most of us have heard these rumors.
I've heard them in my district many times over the years.
The mythical mail handler who made an unbelievable salary. This legendary creature. This Postal Unicorn.
Was it true? Did he exist? Urban legend? Fact? Fiction?
I never knew if it was true. No one knew for sure.

Worldwide fame and fortune.
Women will name their children "EagleDog".
Statues will be built in my honor.
The villagers will write songs about me..."The Ballad of EagleDog".

All kidding aside, it's a pretty amazing income for a postal craft employee.
I've been around nearly 28 years and I know a good postal story when I see one. This one qualifies :)
I won't be surprised to see it appear in other postal newsgroups and forums after I post it here. I'm sure the news will even spread like wildfire across post offices throughout the country.
One thing I can guarantee, we'll be discussing it here in this forum for years and years to come.
The unicorn is real.

Looks like we have a winner! Closest to the hole anyway.

The answer is $223K and mail handler.

You win a free lunch at the postal cafeteria and a lifetime supply of 3849's.
