This case involved management requiring rural carriers to report late and then requiring carriers to take DPS letter mail directly to the street during Christmas overtime. The parties agree that there are certain situations where rural carriers can be required to take DPS letters directly to the street. Such situations include, but are not limited to, significant delays to the customer’s anticipated delivery window, not returning to the office in time to dispatch collection mail, and exceeding the overall weekly evaluation on a consistent basis. The parties further agree the Christmas overtime period does not directly impact the situations when rural carriers can be required to take DPS letter mail directly to the street.
