The Federal Express Courier Company (FedEx) will be implementing a 7-day delivery program that unfortunately will be taking most of the Amazon mail package volume from the Postal Service. The West Valley Facility is expecting a loss of approximately 100,000 packages per day.
Now, more than ever, Mail Handlers need to perform the scanning function on every piece of equipment in every section. I specially want to encourage Mail Handlers working on the Dock Operations at the Phoenix GMF, Tucson GMF and West Valley facilities to continue to perform the scanning function, including scanning empty equipment.
Again, scanning is a major factor in determining additional positions for our Mail Handler craft.
