Are you getting the credit for "No Record Mail" during mail count

(Edited by Ruralinfo.net for clarification and to fix an error)

This is something many managers like to deny credit for during a count.

Remember all of those times throughout the year where you get mail back from CFS for whatever reason?

You might get back a whole stack of mail with these yellow stickers on it..  You have to take the time to pull each one off and figure out why it came back.  This is why you get “individual” markups for each and every one you get during count.

It could be mail that never should have been sent to forwards, but for some reason it did.  Or it could be a piece that has a mispelling or the wrong number in the address.

NO RECORD MAIL – FROM THE MAIL COUNT GUIDE

(1) Mail Individually Endorsed by the Carrier. Credit a markup for each piece of mail in the following categories:

(a) Deceased (DEC) -This endorsement is used only when it is known that the addressee is deceased and the mail is not properly deliverable to another person. This endorsement must be made personally by the delivering employee and, under no circumstances, may it be rubber stamped. Mail addressed In Care Of another must be marked to indicate which person is deceased.
(b) No Record Mail. Credit as a markup each piece of mail given to the carrier under the provisions of PO-603 Section 242.4

This from PO-603 – SECTION 242.4:

No Record Mail

Handle No Record Mail returned to your route from the forwarding unit and endorsed as No Record in the following manner:

a. Verify that the name in the address contains the correct spelling. Verify that the mailing address is correct. If there is an error in the above information, correct and return the mailing piece to the forwarding unit.

b. If an active PS Form 3575 is on file, return the mailpiece to the forwarding unit.

c. If no errors are noted, and no PS Form 3575 is on file, attempt delivery of the piece.

d. If delivery attempt is unsuccessful, handle the mailing piece in accordance with 242.21.

Note: All No Record labels must be removed prior to reprocessing.Don’t miss this credit.. (They are worth 15 seconds each and are recorded under individual markups)

( It could be the difference of going to the next hour.. You only need 4 for a minute…)

I got some but Managment would not give me a credit for them

I am finding them in my DPS.

Yes if it is expired!

Haven’t seen even one since the count started. I don’t know if they are not processing cfs or the postmaster is taking them off before we get them. I have seen a few pieces that were hand sorted that say fwd on the corner but no label.

I asked Mike and he told me not if it was expired

Yes

Ms Dee Dee FYI

Yep

Not one!

funny how I get three to six of these every day, except during a count

Yes

I’ve been keeping mine and getting credit ? thanks for looking out for me Eric ?

For no record mail you get a mark up credit when you receive it. You may have mark it up after removing the sticker….if so you would get a second mark up credit.

How would THESE be handled in a count?

Yeah strange, but thank you I’ll be bringing this up.

Yeah not sure why they are just posting this.

Thanks Jamie Schenk, wish I knew this last week I’ve had quite a few.

I have had my eye out but have not gotten any…

Yes I am. I stick all the stickers on the back of my mail count paper?

Francine Reilly, after thinking, you are correct about the photos showing the wrong stickers.

No matter what the reason is it came back to you so the carrier still has to deal with it and try to see why it came back therefor you get credit for each yellow sticker

I thought no record mail was something sent to CFS by the carrier that CFS bumps back for various reasons. The picture shows RETURN to SENDER mail which is different than mail returned to carrier for review.

I will show this to the boss in the morning

Mine has mysteriously disappeared for the last 7 days

I will show this to the boss in the morning

Yeah I had a bunch the first 2 days now conveniently it’s just magically disappeared :/

Would every piece that comes back with a yellow sticker be considered “no record mail”?

Thank you! I haven’t gotten crapp…..but in the weeks leading up to mail count, they were sending soooo much back that were good forwards!! Grrr

Yeah but there’s only one problem with getting that credit they don’t get it back to you till after count so how can we get an individual piece count for it
