Back in December of 2018, you were notified that NRLCA officers have continued their efforts to reach an agreement on the terms of a new collective bargaining agreement with the Postal Service. The parties have held several meetings, the most recent being this past week. The Union has clearly laid out a number of important, substantive proposals that, in its estimation, must be included in any agreement in order to be ratified by the membership. The national board will be meeting this next week to consider what is currently on the table. At that time, we will have a better picture of whether we are heading towards a fair and just negotiated agreement or whether we are looking at the possibility of impasse followed by mediation and/or interest arbitration. There is a lot of mis-information on social media about the status of our contract. Please be advised that the membership will be notified of the final decision by your national board via the NRLCA web site.
