APOC performing delivery
Since the beginning, the Supervisors Members of the Association showed
their professionalism not only in their own job but also in the entire task
around Canada Post day to day activities.
Because itís difficult in some parts of the country to find the necessary
personnel to deliver the mail, we sometime believe that we should skip part
of our duties to help the Corporation in respecting the norm of service. But
at what price?
Now that the Directors and Managers understand that they cannot force
our Members to deliver the mail of the vacant RSMCís routes, we have to
accept the fact and see what we can do to help our customers to receive
their mail everyday.
First you were hired to supervise the work of the Employees under your
responsibility. Start and do your eight (8) hours of work. Itís commendable
to think of the costumers in this regard however, if your work is not done
properly, itís not the costumer who will come to defend you when you will
receive in writing a needs improvement rating. Hey, I delivered the mail to
help the company; your job is Supervisor not Helper.
Do your full day and after your eight (8) hours of work and if you are still
willing, you can sort and deliver the mail to our customers in overtime. Yes
for certain you will have companies who will be angry because they will
have received their mail late in the day but, if you were not to have
volunteered they wouldnít have received anything at all that day.
Be aware of some Directors or Managers using tactics such as; you are not
a team player. If you make some mistakes or forget to do an important
part of your work as a result of your choices to assist the company in
delivering mail, you will soon see if you are part of the team.
Do your job. Do it right. After, we will see.
