Membership Ratifies New NALC-USPS Collective Bargaining Agreement

The active membership of the National Association of Letter Carriers has overwhelmingly ratified the tentative 2019-2023 National Agreement with the United States Postal Service. Over 94% of participating eligible members voted to accept the tentative agreement that was announced on November 25. The vote to ratify was 60,111 to accept the agreement versus 3,341 to reject it, as reported by NALC’s Ballot Committee chairman Delano Wilson of Silver Spring, MD Branch 2611. The fifteen-member Ballot Committee monitored and observed the dispatch, receipt, and tabulation of the Ratification Ballot conducted by an independent company, MOSAIC of Cheverly, MD.

NALC will officially notify USPS of the March 8 ratification date.

Information on back pay and the implementation of the new contract will be released as soon as possible.

The new contract covers a 44-month term from September 20, 2019, to May 20, 2023.

Piss poor contract with meager raises. The NALC didn’t even have a seat at the table in the latest hearings while the APWU was front and center. Where’s our representation?

Yeah, you can complain about your representation when you’re a rural carrier

with the Health insurance having to pay extra Mr. Rolando and his team have actually ,during a pandemic with no COMBAT pay which is where you are when you are risking your LIFE managed to negotiate a contract where we will be making LESS possibly in spending power when the contract expires in 2023! Ask UPS what they and FedEx get !!!!!!!!!

Oh yeah! Don’t forget about the burning trucks! Free Speech is what makes us FREE

“Increased flexibility to use noncareer city carrier assistant employees”

How much more flexibility do they need? They already work CCAs like slaves and violate labor laws…
