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.

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.
