USPS rural carriers union says members have more to lose than gain in decertification push

NRLCA National President Don Maston said in an interview Friday that the union had “gone to extreme measures” by repeatedly delaying the implementation of the Rural Route Evaluated Compensation System (RRECS).

“I understand that they’re angry, those that have lost hours, and they’re angry at the system,” Maston  said.

But Maston said those delays also exacerbated the shock rural carriers felt with RRECS finally went into effect in May.

Prior to the RRECS rollout, rural carriers were paid based on a five-year-old snapshot of mail volume data, which didn’t account for a persistent decline in mail volume over the years.
