WEST BEAVER CREEK

The union stated that an issue remains outstanding concerning SS7, a “SLB” at Highway # 7. A customer at this location has a “SLB” decorated to look like a CPC SLB, which inadvertently had a lock placed on it by DSOs, and we commenced clearances. There are approximately three (3) bags daily, as well as items left beside the box due to volume. The Corporation should either add to existing MLC routes or adjust and pay for duties. Clearance is indicated @ 11:00 A.M. yet the RSMC is at this location @ 9:30 A.M.

Management will review and advise.

Route SS 7 receives no credit for sort and prep PCI caller mail or caller mail, on days there can be fifty pieces. Locally the RSMC has been advised that the issue must be addressed at the national level for payment.

Management to review.

PARCELS TO DOOR

Discussion occurred for over a year and a half, log sheets were to be maintained to address recording of PCI, credit to be included in the yearly inspection. RSMC are not paid for taking parcels to the door. K. Vanderploeg and J. Gilbert stated that if service was an issue delivery to occur, log to be maintained and payment would occur.
