Earlier this week we were told to pick either Sunday or Monday to do Amazons....and then this morning management gathered all us CCAs and told us that we have to work BOTH Sunday and Monday.

We were angry and one of my good friends said "we have a family", the supervisors said "we do too" and then my friend decided to quit.

I was shocked when I heard about him quitting...he was a good employee and friend.

The treatment of CCAs has become a complete joke.

Funny, 22 Years active duty/8 deployments. Now, I work at the Post Office, a mile from my house, and I feel like I see my family less than I ever have. Can't blame your friend for leaving.

they treat us (CCA) like robots , work 6-10 days straight , send back out any time , if you're not on an opt ( no set work hours , come in different time everyday , leave different time everyday ) can't plan anything at all.I'm happy for your friend ! he made the right decision! I would quit too but I have a 4 year old son to take care of .can't have any down time

So if you have to do Sunday and Monday do you get a day off? Sounds like a good check, but no family time, that sucks...

If you are christian you can drop the religious bomb on Sundays. If they don't allow it its a EEO.

When I was a PTF there were numerous weeks that I would work every day.
Once I worked every day for THREE weeks. With NO OT!

not really. For me, Sunday + Monday will probably equal the hours I'll work on Tuesday.

He's married with kids....including a 4 year old. He told me when he leaves work? she's sleeping. When he comes home? she's sleeping.

Can't have a family and be a CCA.

Every time I do Amazons, I never get a day off during the week. I've done Amazons about 5 or 6 times since the start....never had a day off during the week.

Then they complain about my overtime/vtime.....

Doubt they give a damn about CCAs using that. If it worked all CCAs would use that and no one would do Amazons.

Unless they ask regulars....nope....they make too much $.

After we found out he quit....other CCAs talked about quitting too...I wish we could all quit and stick it management....but for me....I'm stuck here.

I was and still am angry and depressed.

When I heard about him quitting...I was shocked. I went over to him and he said yes....He was a really good coworker and a good friend.....

We took lunches if we were close and talked just about everything.

Now...he's gone.

I'd kill to be a PTF over a CCA. Career Status with pension time, TSP, ability to use AL, real union protection... the list goes on. It would make the abuse worth it.CCAinFL2014-02-15 20:18:30

I agree. I get tired of hearing that CCA/PTF comparison. Not even the same ball park. Not even the same game really.

It is a totally different motivational mindset when knowing that one day all those days you worked as a ptf will count towards pension.

cca is just money earned.

NOT COMPARABLE!
CCA'S are not the problem, local stewards who have not grieved even the smallest contract infractions how-ever are the problem.
