Several thousand Postal Service rural carriers have expressed an interest in leaving their union, after most of them saw pay cuts under a new pay system.

But the union’s new national president is urging caution, and telling its members that a new union won’t mean a better deal for rural carriers.

A grassroots network of rural carriers is collecting signatures from their coworkers, in the hopes of decertifying the National Rural Letter Carriers Association, (NRLCA) which counts 127,000 rural carriers as its members.

Rural carriers behind the decertification effort told Federal News Network that the union didn’t do enough to keep USPS from implementing a  new pay system that’s been in the works for more than a decade.
