Service Talk March 2010: This service talk was given district wide during the last two weeks of March.  It mandates that  lunches be started no later than 12:30 and states that there will be a "renewed emphasis on matching workload to work hours".  The author is not known but the copy we obtained has the name of the district manager hand written on the document.

Carriers are being given a form titled Carrier Expectation Worksheet. In this sample notice that the Hot Case, Depart to Route and First Delivery time are all the same.  Also notice that the last delivery time and the return to office time are 52 minutes apart, even though it takes only 4 minutes to travel back to the office from this point.  Many of the "worksheets" contain erroneous scan locations because the MSP points were never moved from route to route following MIARAP and IARAP adjustments.  There is no explanation for the multiple work functions due at the same time or the expanded travel return to office time.  These forms are being used differently in different offices.  In some offices they are distributed like flyers and in other offices they are being used to create a hostile work place.
