Update from Dan Heins, UPMA National President

As those of you in the field are very aware, we are seeing some changes in how the Postal Service now does business with trips on time, etc. With these changes come some reporting requirements. Make sure that you are aware of what those requirements are and as the Postmasters, Managers and Supervisors in your operations, make sure that you are firmly adhering to those requirements. If you must delay mail (at the beginning of the day, or at the end of the day) REPORT IT!! With the new changes that have been implemented, this is going to be inevitable in almost every operation in the country and if you are following the mandates as they have been set forth and if you are forced to delay/curtail mail, again I say REPORT IT!! It is up to each of you to manage your operations to the best of your abilities and when you are following the guidelines you will not get in trouble for reporting the mail that may not have been processed, or delivered. However, you want to make sure that you are reporting it because if someone does an inspection and finds mail in the building that was not reported that can and most likely will create some issues and may well lead to discipline. So, protect yourself and your fellow employees by doing what is right. Part of this entire process is making sure that the craft employees that work in your facility understand your expectations for them, as well. Be very clear and direct in your instructions and it should make the operation run that much more smoothly.
