2019 No. 10 – January 21, 2020:
You are reading the tenth Contract Update produced and distributed by the NPMHU during the course of 2019 negotiations. These updates, along with the Union’s magazine and monthly bulletins, will keep mail handlers throughout the country informed about the issues raised during this round of bargaining.
National President Paul Hogrogian and National Secretary-Treasurer Michael Hora today announced that representatives of the NPMHU and the U.S. Postal Service have reached a tentative agreement over the terms of their 2019 National Agreement.
The precise terms of the settlement, which will cover the three-year period from September 21, 2019 through September 20, 2022, will be released at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, when the NPMHU National Officers will conduct a nationwide telephone conference call with the Presidents from all thirty-seven Local Unions. At the same time, the terms of the agreement will be posted on the NPMHU website, and will be mailed to thousands of Local Union officers and representatives throughout the country. Details about the teleconference will be sent separately to all Local Presidents.
The National Executive Board will approve procedures providing for a ratification vote by all members. The package circulated with that ballot will contain the precise wording for all of the additions and deletions contained in the new National Agreement.
