Closeout Duties

My DR said he would email me closeout duty allowances.

Well, he hasn't. Does anyone know what these are? I'm back after closing 5 out of 6 days.

Morty -- "My DR said he would email me closeout duty allowances.  Well, he hasn’t."

--  Send an email to David Heather, Director of Steward Operations, at HQ.   Just maybe he would or look into the reason your DR hasn't. 

" Does anyone know what these are? "

-- Not really.  Could be as simple as locking the door, but would imagine the duties could be numerous:  ensuring accountable cart/cage locked, arrow keys and gas cards secured, safe closed and locked, pouch emptied and contents secured, computer(s) and monitor(s) turned off, inside lights turn off, outside lights turned on if not by electronic eye, ensuring all carriers are back, POV's and or LLV's locked, out side gate(s) locked.

" closing 5 out of 6 days."

--  Maybe manglement has its eyes on you to join the "dark side" in the future.

Is that column 17 time to do the extra duties?

It's unlock doors, turn on lights, turn off lights, lock doors, put key in Dropbox.

easy to get 10 to 15 minutes. we have to prep our package pickups to satisfy the plant honcho's, get the outgoing ready in proper tubs, again to pease the plant gurus', and then the above suggestions..

Morty -- "Is that column 17 time to do the extra duties?"

--  Check page 26 of the 2018 Mail Count Guide.

--  Examples for PO-603:

( B )  Where not office personnel are on duty when the carrier returns from serving the route on any day(s) of the week,  [ that is an improvement -- 2011 Mail Count Guide only mentioned "Saturday" ]  the carrier received ACTUAL TIME allowance only for those duties performed over and above the normal functions of this day and the following workday.  ( This does not include time spent counting mail or completing count forms ) -- Really no manglement or counters on hand at the end of the day during count?

--  You and manglement should have had an agreed-to-list of duties that you perform to close up the office ( IMHO ) a long time ago.

--  Check pages 26 and 27 of the Mail Count Guide as well as Section 481 of the PO-603, might be something you could add to your list.

Back to this:

I get back after closing, remind counter to give closing credit, it says I only get that on Sat. But it's after hours and no one has been at the office after hours this fiscal period. They were lazy it said. Someone is suppose to be here till all carriers get back.

This had already been discussed pre count with an outgoing OIC. What's right? That's alot of time on the table...

Any time that you are closing, you get closing duties.

Doesn't have to be Saturday...ask the counter if you are supposed to just leave everything unsecured since it's not Saturday.

p.s.  cracks me up every time you refer to management as "it".  😀 😀 😀

Part of me wants to say fine, I expect mngt to be here from now on to ruin their lives. And part of me wants that extra 10ish min a week.

I'll see how the numbers play out to see what I'll do.

Oi veh -- "p.s.  cracks me up every time you refer to management as “it”."

--  Morty probably just trying to keep the web site "family friendly" by leaving off the "sh".
