Thank you NRLCA!


Ya, thanks for a paltry 3.8% raise over 3 years and thanks for making table 2 equal to table 1…..after 14 years! What about the lost wages in the intervening years? Terrible contract

OK so when do we expect to receive our back pay?

Now that management have gotten what they want, bend over and hang on tight. The worst is yet to come. I’m just glad I’ve only got a few months left.


To seashore.no one is making you keep your job with the post office.If you think your unique skill set will get you more money and better benefits in the private market ,have at it.Given the current environment to privatize the post office and reduce benefits,I was very happy to have a job for 27 years as a rural carrier. A job that paid well above my local market,and health benefits and retirement funds second to none. Good luck with your alternate job search.


James, the reason you did so well is you were paid tier 1 wages, not tier 2. A huge difference over time! The contract is crap. I was hired in 2011 when there was only 1 pay grade but, retroactive to Nov 2010 all new employees were put on tier 2. By the way, what was your parcel count on a daily basis? Go put your head back in the sand please.

I sent my vote in on time. Almost a month later I got my vote back saying address is vacant?? WTF! Did this happen to anyone else?

My question is about coding. My regular day off is Monday. I’m on the overtime list and I just worked Saturday which should have been my relief day for the holiday. Whats the code I should get for that.

Sara Rowland

Does anyone know where I can find out if being made to work thanksgiving is a breach of contract?
