The location for the interest arbitration’s opening hearings has been set. The hearings will take place at the Washington DC National Mall Hilton, located at 480 L’Enfant Plaza SW, Washington, DC 20024. Interest arbitration will determine the terms of the next contract.
The hearing will begin at 10:00 am, and APWU members are welcome to attend. Members will have an opportunity to hear both the APWU and the USPS lay out what they plan on presenting to the three-member arbitration panel over the course of the interest arbitration and hear the demands each party will be making in arbitration.
Based on panel chair Arbitrator Stephen Goldberg’s availability, hearings will then continue on September 24-26, 2019 and October 10-11, 2019. The parties expect to complete all hearings by the end of the year.
