Drifting Apart

Postal Families

The first few years I was working we all did the same thing. We were supposed to have mail handlers and clerks but we all got in the box cars, we all hefted the mail. Once it went to the main office, it was more regimented, automation was kicking in (LSM machines) it kind of alienated from the manual clerks because we could work overtime on the machine (we had to qualify on it) we also could go over to the letter cases and work overtime there also. They could only work letter cases, they couldn’t come over to the machine and get overtime. So that created some problems until overtime was by section and not by tour.
