The National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association and the United States Postal Service have negotiated a Tentative Agreement to cover the 3-year period from May 21, 2021 to May 20, 2024. This Tentative Agreement must be ratified by a majority of the voting membership of the NRLCA to become effective.
The highlights of the Tentative Agreement are outlined below.
A more detailed explanation of the changes will be presented in a special Tentative Agreement edition of the National Rural Letter Carrier magazine and via ratification meetings to be held via ZOOM Meetings in every state in accordance with Article XI, Section 1 of the Constitution of the National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association.
The required ratification meetings will be held in February 2022. The time and date of each meeting will be published in the special Tentative Agreement edition of the National Rural Letter Carrier and posted on the NRLCA national website.
The NRLCA National Board believes this is a fair and reasonable agreement that is in the best interest of the 132,000 hardworking rural letter carriers across the country providing for substantial gains in wages and benefits for all classifications of rural carriers.
