You may wonder why the title of this publication is “NAPS Wake Up Call.” Well the idea came from a friend who stated to me. “EAS employees better wake up and smell the roses!” The Postal Service tends to take advantage of EAS, because they are so busy keeping up with the craft contract and their day-
This publication is information compiled from the collective references of U S Postal Service Manuals, Letters accumulated from the NAPS Consultative process; minutes from the National NAPS Executive Board meetings, general inquiry responses and articles from the Postal Supervisor Newsletter.
The Wake Up Call is dedicated to all NAPS members and it is my hope that everyone reading this booklet is a member!

"If you know better you will do better" Maya Angelou
In honor of Black History month, I honor one of my favorite poets the late Ms. Angelou. Hope you have an opportunity to reflect on the many contributions African Americans have shared through Education, Law, Politics, The Arts, Science and numerous inventions that help to make America a great society! There is a rich history to reflect on, that is why February is designated Black History Month!
Review of EAS position requirements: “An EAS is required to follow all Official Postal Policies and ensure a safe and harassment free working environment for employees and peers. What an EAS is not required to do is use their personal vehicle or personal cell phone on or off the clock for work!”
Several years ago, I was at a NAPS Executive board meeting and we were honored to welcome PMG Brennan to our meeting at which she shared the status of the Postal Service at the time. As always there were questions and answers. The subject of Supervisors being required to provide their personal cell phone number to their manager? The PMG response was “cell phones are a great convenience”. Having said that her comment was that it is the decision of the EAS to give management their personal cell numbers it is not a mandate or requirement!
Regarding the use of your personal vehicle for work, the agency will not ensure your vehicle if you use it for Postal business! The NAPS web site naps.org has reference letters regarding Use of Personal vehicle for work.
