Please enlighten me, which is better being a TE carrier or a RCA. What's the Pros & Cons? Is there a bid difference among the two. Thanks for any input! Roll Eyes

The TE city carriers at my office are getting a lot of hours right now. RCA's usually only get to work one day a week unless they cover a vacation or sick leave for a full-time RC. But, and it's a big but, the TE's career could be over at any moment as they can be let go at any time to make their hours available to career employees. If we go to five-day delivery, you won't see a TE or an RCA anywhere in the USPS, probably.

There will be a few RCA's if we go 5 days a week. Someone has to cover for sick days and vacations. People also seem to forget that the Rural Carriers work on an evaluated time. Get paid x amount of hours for the day to do the job, hours based on a 6 day work week. If you take a day away and make it a 5 day work week to do those x amount of hours than you end up with more hours for the day, so the carrier still might need a day off here and there depending on route size.
