USPS statement on new NALC contract
The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) membership has ratified a new 44-month labor contract with the Postal Service.
The contract covers approximately 206,000 employees represented by the union.
Highlights of the agreement include annual general wage increases, a reduction in the employer share of health premiums, increased flexibility to use noncareer city carrier assistant employees, and conversion of city carrier assistants with 24 months of service to part-time flexible career status.
“This agreement is economically responsible, fair to employees and it provides a positive contribution toward efforts to achieve financial and operational stability,” said Chief Human Resources Officer Doug Tulino.
The agreement covers the 44-month period that began Sept. 20, 2019 — when the previous contract ended — and runs through May 20, 2023.
“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…
A wage increase that is eaten up by the increase in employees healthcare share.
A backhanded raise.
