NALC – Settlements reached on two national-level disputes

March 7, 2024

NALC and the Postal Service have settled two national-level interpretive step disputes, one regarding the expiration date of the October 22, 2008, MOU Re: Assignment of City Delivery and another concerning the implementation of the Casers/Deliverers test program, commonly referred to as Caser/Streeter.

For the dispute regarding Caser/Streeter, M-02000 in NALC’s Materials Reference System, the parties agreed the test has concluded and that the data collection and testing did not involve or result in any changes to current work measurement systems, work, or time standards. The test also did not result in any permanent changes to the current route structure or route evaluation and/or adjustment process in the city letter carrier craft. As a result, it was agreed to close this case without prejudice to the position of either party in this or any other matter. Additionally, any remaining issues will be subsequently resolved in accordance with the collective bargaining agreement.

For the grievance regarding the expiration date of the October 22, 2008, MOU Re: Assignment of City Delivery (M-02001), the parties agreed the expiration of the MOU coincides with Arbitrator Das’ interest arbitration award dated January 10, 2013.  It was agreed that any new delivery growth which was improperly assigned during the timeframe in question, November 20, 2011, through January 10, 2013, will be properly reassigned.

All cases being held pending resolution of these national-level disputes will be reviewed for application of these settlements. The Materials Reference System can be found under Workplace Issues on the NALC website, nalc.org.
