On August 9, 2020, the NAPS Executive Board determined to appeal the recent decision of the federal district court in Washington, D.C., dismissing NAPS’ lawsuit against the Postal Service for violations of pay and representational statutes. The district court’s decision relied primarily on procedural grounds. The NAPS Executive Board approved the following board motion:
” The NAPS Executive Board authorizes and approves NAPS’s legal counsel to file an appeal of the July 17, 2020 decision of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia that dismissed NAPS’s lawsuit against the U.S. Postal Service to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.”
The deadline for appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia is September 15, 2020.
