Usps Labor Agreement
“Today, I am pleased to announce that NALC and the U.S. Postal Service have reached an interim agreement on a new national contract, a goal we have been working on continuously over the past 17 months. As I have pointed out on several occasions, NALC has taken a two-tiered approach to reaching a new national agreement, with negotiations underway and the presentation of the best possible case for our proposals in derinseschied. I am proud of the case and the evidence we have accumulated in the interest of arbitration, but I am all the more pleased that the factors can now decide whether or not to accept this provisional agreement in a ratification vote in accordance with the procedure described in the NALC Constitution. Description: Minutes of joint meetings of working and management committees, both nationally and in the field. The Postal Service and the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) continued joint training and support for dispute resolution procedures by training 80 postal and NALC representatives to resolve and resolve disputes in the field. Training has made a decisive contribution to reducing conflict and improving relations. The Postal Service and NALC have also jointly developed a widely implemented intervention process to identify and resolve dispute cases at the lowest possible level and to help build more cooperative and productive relationships in the field of labour management. The 2019 national agreement will last 44 months and will cover the period from September 20, 2019 to May 20, 2023. The agreement provides for four annual general wage increases and seven adjustment costs (COLAs). In addition, with effect on November 19, 2022, a new next step (stage P) will be added to the factor pay scales, which will be $444 per year higher than Stage O. The agreement also provides for the automatic transition of City Carrier Assistants (CCAs) to career status, no later than 24 months of relative position, providing benefits and total security to non-career holders. In addition, there is protection against subcontracting and redundancies.
The NALC Executive Board unanimously recommends approving the interim agreement. Description: Datasets related to labour relations participation when setting up bulk mail centres. Includes personnel plans and changes, correspondence and documents resulting from local work/management negotiations. As explained in Chapter 3, two interim alternating route adjustment processes were negotiated with the NALC due to the dramatic drop in mail volume. As part of the revised agreement, all line evaluation and adjustment decisions were made jointly by NALC teams and postal representatives after verification of selected data and data provided by the regular carrier. These processes have eliminated 10,119 urban transportation routes, and if route adjustments are added outside of this process, about 11,000 urban roads have been eliminated this year. We summarized the main features of the contract in the NALC Bulletin, which is sent to stations and offices across the country.
