Pursuant to the release of the January 2020 Consumer Price Index – Urban Wage and Clerical Workers (CPI-W), and in accordance with Article 9.1.E , the fourth COLA adjustment of the 2018-2021 National Agreement will result in a $187 increase for eligible rural carriers. This COLA adjustment will be effective February 29, 2020, (PP 06-2020). All COLA adjustments are based on a 40-hour evaluation with proportional application to those route evaluations over 40 hours. The increase should appear in paychecks dated March 20, 2020.
NOTE: All leave replacement employees will now receive an additional 1% salary adjustment annually in lieu of COLA adjustments. Those leave replacement employees on the rolls prior to August 11, 2012, will now receive the additional 1% salary adjustment annually, rather than waiting for a COLA roll-in at the end of the agreement.
