Regarding the 7:01 rule, the following will be applied:
When a City Carrier(s) has completed their route on a regular workday and cannot be assigned any available work, have worked more than 7, but less than 8 hours, upon request the Carrier will be officially excused for the remainder of that regularly scheduled workday. Any hours not worked between the 7th and 8th hour on that day will be afforded guaranteed time, provided that Carriers must inform management of their desire to clock out prior to completion of the 8 hours minus the time covered by the 5 minute leeway rule. So in short, prior to the expiration of 7:55 work hours
Overtime by other employees in the unit does not negate the 7:01 rule.
It falls on the NALC and all its members to insure that the USPS is included in the final stimulus bill. It is more imperative than ever that all Carriers download the NALC app if they have not already done so. You will receive notifications and a simple method with a link to sent a letter to both of our Florida Senators and Congressional Representative. Please go to the App Store or Google Play and search for "NALC Member App" to install it for free.
