pril 2020 Postal Record

Eric K. Jackson, Branch 725 Vice- President & Scribe

Safety! It’s a major priority in the district. The NALC will never disagree with an emphasis being placed on
safety. After all, article 14 of the National Agreement addresses safety. Simply put, we want our members
to have a lasting and safe experience while at work and beyond. The problem comes with management.
They always go too far to make their point. This is when discipline comes into the picture. Many members
are being taken off the clock (placed in a non-pay status) when found by management to not be following
safety rules. The #1 issue is earbuds and seatbelts. It sounds simple but our members seem to be cutting
corners. But in doing so, we can be cutting our lives. The seatbelts work. But until it happens to someone
close to us, we seem to think “not us”. Let’s change this way of thinking.


Elsewhere, our greatest challenge has been attendance. But it directly ties to staffing. Many of our
members have been so worn out due to so much work that they break down or wear down. The challenge
has been unscheduled absences. Please be careful when calling out sick to stay away from social media.
Believe it or not, that has been a major problem. We have been battling every attendance discipline but
eventually they are removed. So, when a carrier talks about calling out for not the “right” reasons, we
must give them tough love and good advice. It sounds hokey, but when a member is removed, it seems to
take away a piece of that shop steward that worked harder to save the carrier’s job than they seemed to
have.

I would like to thank every member who appeared in the February Postal Record for their contributions to
the LCPF!

Business Agents Office

Please contact me in writing via email whether management is providing supplies to carriers
daily as needed such as hand sanitizers and disinfecting wipes, and whether the surfaces in the offices
are being disinfected daily.

I need to know in each facility whether they have enough supplies to safeguard employees(and ultimately
customers), or whether they do not. Also, what you are being told regarding this from management in the
facility.

Please begin this immediately, we need to get our arms around the USPSs capacity to keep our
employees safe, facility by facility.

If there are any questions please feel free to call. Hopefully, this makes it a bit easier.

Take care, please be safe and thank you for all that you guys do.
