I asked the business agent the same question at our last union meeting. He told me there's no limit. In other words, if supervisors want to, they can work CCAs seven days a week indefinitely. There's nothing in the by-laws to prevent that. If you're looking for cash, this is in your favor. I've been making $2000/pay period working every day at around 50-60 hours a week. However, if you're looking for a break, I suggest opting for a hold down once you're past your 60 days because there's a chance you'll see a day off. They can schedule you to work on that day off as there are no guarantees.

All of them. CCAs aren't human. They don't need days off.

If it wasn't for this storm I would have been on my 10th day. Not going to lie, I'm pretty beat. I'm on a 6 week t6 hold down And haven't had an NS day.

That's right. CCAs are robots. They move faster then regular carriers and don't need breaks, a lunch or days off. Any CCA that doesn't meet this requirement is defective and needs to be replaced.

That's management's view anyways.

No limit. 32 days straight is the most I've done so far with this job.

So wrong. No one should be allowed to work that many days in a row. What a *****in' joke USPS is.
