  1. I work at a processing plant. Someone really, really needs to monitor these goofs. They are dismantling machines. More are needed, not less. Supervisors ?? What are they ? They print out the daily schedule and you dont see them again until they make their “oh crap, we’re not going to make dispatch ” face. I see all sorts of problems in processing but I strongly hesitate to mention anything to anyone because 1) Management will label me as a snitch and I will not only remain on their hit list, but my coworkers as well. 2) They dont listen to craft because they have it in their minds they are somehow more knowledgeable, although they have never ran automation themselves. 3) management really only favors those who kiss their butts and tell them how wonderful they are, and why do they do that ? because they aren’t that great a worker and they need a security cushion.

  2. post office is so stupid…..Hollywood, NFL, US Postal Circus next on the boycott list. President Trump, fire that Obammy holdover Demoncat Muffin IOD Meghan Brennen.

  3. This doesn’t surprise me at all. I’ve been a USPS employee for a long time but I’m relatively new to the Atlanta District. I have NEVER seen a P&DC run like this one. Color codes are regularly changed on mail, labels are purposely printed after a certain time because they will show the next days date, and I’ve seen entire dps runs that weren’t dispatched and hidden, undeclared, to be run again the next day! The crazy thing is everyone here knows it but since it’s done by management at all levels nobody questions it. I can remember a day when folks were walked out of the building in handcuffs for such things. The machines run like crap. We are told that maintenance regularly shows work completed that was never done. Trying to run mail on them leads me to believe that’s true too. So……late mail delivery or none at all………….not surprising if you could see from the inside. All that will happen over this, at best, will be temporary damage control by the very EAS personnel that should be walked out of here in handcuffs.

    • EGGGzactly!!!
      Same thing down here in south floriduh. MISmanagement just finished ‘reposting due to function 1 scheduling standards’ (or LACK thereof)…now, two weeks later, employees, in this case, clerks and mailhandlers, are receiving another letter either reverting them back to their bid(that was reposted) or having their days off just changed. period.

      WHERE are our unions??? we are TIRED of hearing how ‘management has the right to mismanage’…they are destroying our post office.

      and who are these pencil-headed twits making up this ‘function 1’???
      (bet you all have NEVER set foot in a plant, nor experienced or understand the operations!)

      I have NEVER seen our service so poorly managed(term used lightly)and employees treated with such disdain and disrespect, especially the senior employees…

  4. Here’s a news flash for you- WAIT TILL THE MONDAY AFTER VETERAN’S DAY, IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE NITE SHIFT FOR POSTAL LETTER CARRIERS! I’LL LAY YOU 8/5 ODDS IN VEGAS THAT YOU WILL HAVE CARRIERS OUT THERE WAY AFTER DARK(UNSAFE), DELIVERING THE MAIL-TRY TO TELL MISMANAGEMENT TO BRING PEOPLE IN EARLIER AND WHAT DO YOU HEAR- “THE PUPPETS SAY-WE CANNT DO THAT” BECAUSE WE HAVEN’T BEEN TOLD TO LET YOU! WHAT A JOKE, NOT KIDDING. LET SOMEONE GET HURT AND LISTEN TO HOW MISMANAGEMENT HANDLES IT! EXCUSES , EXCUSES.. BY THE WAY HAVE A GOOD-DAY

  5. Amazing when I started in 83, clerks started at 2 am, workEd the mail manually and carriers were in by 7am and if you found on street by 4pm they probably had been bit by a dog. All this automation, huge drop in first class mail, all these vehicles. We walk routes in my day to relay boxes. What the hell is going on. One things for sure Georgia is not alone.

  6. There is absolutely no excuse for this kind of piss poor service. This is a direct result of PMG Brennan and her bright idea of reducing standards and closing plants, in addition to refusing to hire career employees and grossly violating the four labor contracts with impunity. I have been out as a retiree since January and it still gets my goat to see service getting so bad. Management is entirely to blame.
    They are bean counting know nothings who are in it for the skim. We see these ridiculous commercials for the USPS showing how friendly the carriers are, how reliable and wonderful we are. If that isn’t false advertising. Nothing will be done as long as Trumpty Dumpty is around and the GOP controls Congress because they want to kill the USPS dead anyway, and I wouldn’t be a damn bit surprised to learn the creeps at L’Infant Plaza (that’s how it should be spelled) are in on the sabotage for big bucks besides the undeserved salaries and “bonuses” or “performance awards” or whatever they want to call the skim.
    I strongly suspect there are a lot of other embezzlement schemes we’ll never discover because they can easily fudge details, numbers, etc., and bury the evidence in tons of paperwork it would take an army of inspectors to find. There are some decent people in management, but like any ladder one has to climb to get anywhere, including the NALC, you can only go so far and stay honest. You either get in on the game and know who to blow, or you might find yourself a convenient scapegoat when some scheme goes awry. It’s the good ol’ boy system run amok.
    What is happening in greater Atlanta is going on in larger cities all over the country. The district and area offices get their marching orders from D.C., and these people can be some of the most vile dishonest jerks anywhere. So many are related to other higher ups, suck up with no hesitation and do whatever it takes to get promoted – snitch, lie, cheat, and kiss ass. And they are typically lousy craft workers, although there are exceptions, and I want to stress that point because my former office has good folks trying to make things work. No, folks, it’s not your local office – it’s the big boys, the PM’s of the largest cities on up that are ruining the Service. Only by removing these people with a regime change in D.C. can we expect anything to improve.

  7. The Police should be called to the Spa in DC. The toolbags
    in charge are guilty of mismanagement and are causing all
    these issues. These new standards are not working. The lack of
    employees due to harassment, intimidation, schedules, is causing
    a turnover of 50% among new hires. The toolbags expect career
    employees to do more every day. No such thing as one job, one
    person. The PO is going down the drain faster every day.
    Get out now. The end is near.

    • It’s not the stations fault it all starts at the processing plant. That’s where the heads need to roll!
