The Postal Service’s two largest unions are weighing in, more than a year into Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s 10-year agency reform plan.

The National Association of Letter Carriers and the American Postal Workers Union are calling for USPS to increase hiring, adding that long-term understaffing is taking a toll on employee morale.

While USPS under DeJoy has converted 100,000 part-time employees to full-time status, NALC National President Fredric Rolando said Tuesday that “moving to an all-career workforce with competitive starting wages” will be on the table for its next round of contract negotiations in 2024.
