NALC – City carriers to receive 1.3% general wage increase in November
Effective Nov. 19, all career city carriers will receive a 1.3 percent general wage increase. City carrier assistants (CCAs) will receive a 2.3 percent general wage increase effective the same date.
These are the fourth and final general wage increases of the 2019-2023 National Agreement.
In addition, a new top step will be added to Tables 1 and 2 on Nov. 19.
The new career Step P will be $444 annually greater than Step O. Carriers with at least 46 weeks in Step O on Nov. 19 will advance to Step P. Those with fewer than 46 weeks will advance to Step P upon reaching 46 weeks in Step O.
The updated pay chart is on nalc.org and in the November edition of The Postal Record.
The four general wage increases have added 8.8 percent to CCAs’ pay and 4.8 percent to career city carriers’ pay. When coupled with the six cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) already received from this National Agreement, these increases have resulted in a total pay increase for each step in the career pay schedules of at least 14.8 percent. The seventh and final COLA from this National Agreement will be based on the January 2023 consumer price index, and will be announced in February.
