It seems to me your post kind of defeats the purpose of a public forum such as this, don't you think?  If you have something of value to discuss, by all means share it with everyone on this forum.  That's why we come here, isn't it?

Nope, I came here to network with other RCAs. I don't have to do that publicly. This forum has multiple methods for communicating, and I intend to use them as I see fit.

To be frank, I am not remotely interested in what many posters here think of the concerns RCAs have. Too many posters here have made it abundantly clear that they have no respect for RCAs and no interest in advocating on behalf of RCAs. And too many readers have stood silently by and allowed disparaging comments to become a culture. I have no doubt that any thread with serious intentions would be derailed by catty remarks and childish insults (see below). This public forum has been dismally absent in leadership and character and is not an appropriate space to have serious conversations about working conditions for RCAs.

I'm staring to feel left out... there's a a "Leave Replacement" forum here on Rural Mail Talk, and now we got a "RCA Private Thread"...  Surprised

Where's the "Regular Carrier" forum, and the "Regular Carrier Private Thread"???   Confused

We got so many different factions working at the PO... hard to keep track of them all...  Wink

Is there anything stopping you from making a Regular Carrier Private Thread?

I'm not sure really even what a "Private Thread" is... so that's one thing... and then there's no "Regular Carrier Forum" like there is a "Leave Replacement Forum"... so that's sorta another thing...  Frown

I usually figure what I got to say on a public forum is okay to be shared with the public... so as BlameTheSub said above, this seems sorta counter-intuitive to me anyways...  Confused

But to each their own... whatever floats yer boat...  Wink

I can see the value in this, a conversation free of "when I was a sub" comments although valuable in some context, would be helpful.

A frank discussion about our pay, working conditions, and benefits would be nice. We have collective bargaining power. We should start planning on ways to harness it. 

I do not discount that current regulars have valuable information to impart and that there are many many regulars who are allies in helping RCAs move towards a better working environment. Unfortunately, in this forum they have a tendency to be drowned out by the unhelpful and ubiquitous comments of certain louder, more prolific regulars who just can't seem to pass up a thread without making a snarky comment. 

As such, I think it's important to create our own place where we can have serious discussions and weed out the constant noise from people who do not share our goals of a better working environment for all RCAs.

I would ask to join....but, I might be able to bid on a route in a month or three, or maybe it'll be a year...or two... then what? banned?

Guess we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. In the meantime, current RCAs need to be working together towards definable goals. This isn't about regulars. And this isn't about "back in the day." It's about RCAs now and next year and the year after that

I just have no idea how you think we can stand apart from the union/USPS/regulars?  Everyone works under the same 'evaluation' system, which is under construction (I hope).   What 'definable goal' could an RCA have/expect, besides to become a regular???
