Does the NALC contract mention a maximum distance to walk for one delivery? We have a business who, until recently, used Caller Service and now wants delivery. To get to where they want the mail, we have to park, walk approx. 150 feet, go down an elevator, and walk an additional 100 or so feet. And this is a business that get 5-6 tubs plus a fair amount of parcels daily. I'm just curious if the contract addresses this.

I have to believe that your management team isn't going to be down with that.

Especially since this will affect your street time.

They do get a TON of mail though. Wink

If anything, they need to have the necessary equipment available to be able to transport all that mail in preferably 1 trip. Such as a hand truck etc.

Hell, I don't think I'd mind having a delivery like that added to my route. Sounds like an easy 20 minutes or so if not more, just for 1 delivery. Cool

When I was a PTF a few years ago, there was a business that was very similar to this 1 it sounds like. It was originally a Caller Service as well, and they got TONS of mail also. It was a very big major computer company. You had to have an ID badge, and go through a secured gate to enter the facility. And then drive all the way around to the back of the huge property. And then park and go inside the building and they had a hand truck for us to use. And you had to go through a bunch of doors and stuff. I liked it. Like I said earlier it easily added about 20 minutes or so to the route. I think if the route had another 20 or so of these types of deliveries that would just be the best route in the world. Hug

I thought the best routes were where you went in an office building and spent all day in there. Like a clerk at the PO. It would stink in nice weather, but be nice in very hot/cold weather. 8-)

They are called VIM rooms, in my district to get one you have to join the postal service when you are 17 and by the time you are 67 you might have enough seniority to bid on one. Now a few PTFs get lucky and OPT on them while a senior carrier is burning off excess sick leave.
