I thought I overheard a carrier once say they get a bonus during the holidays. Is this true and if so how much?

Just curious.

No bonuses for anyone. You do however if
carrier or clerk at the window can receive
up to $20 in gift from your customers. Around
Xmas there are always guidelines that are
given to employees that deal with customers
as to what you can accept. If your Manager
has not shared with you what the law dept.
puts out every year, go and ask.

One Christmas season only, a few years ago each Rural Carrier received a "bonus" based on how much Christmas overtime that wasn't used. They never explained why they offered it nor did they explained why they stopped it. (Though, we have our suspicions)

Just seeing my customers smile when I bring the packages to the door is bonus enough for me. Some people do all of their shopping online and the post office delivers their packages to them. Anybody else go by the name Santa Claus during Christmas Overtime? Big Grin

Article 11 of the National Agreement:

Section 4. Holiday Work
A. An employee required to work on a holiday other than Christmas shall be paid the base hourly straight time rate for each hour worked up to eight (8) hours in addition to the holiday
pay to which the employee is entitled as above described.

B. An employee required to work on Christmas shall be paid one and one-half (l 1/2) times the base hourly straight time rate for each hour worked in addition to the holiday pay
to which the employee is entitled as above described.

If Christmas Eve becomes your holiday if your NS day falls on Christmas, you receive a "bonus" if you work that day due to holiday scheduling, so perhaps this is what was "overheard"?

Superdave, I'm a rural carrier. I can't wait til Christmas overtime. I just bought a smaller Jeep Wrangler, so I'm planning to make a lot of 2-trip days this Christmas overtime. Rural carriers switch over to hourly or evaluation, whichever is greatest during Christmas overtime.
