The National Association of Letter Carriers issued the following clarification on the new health insurance initiative NALC President Fred Rolando mentioned in his remarks at the National Press Club yesterday:
Update on health benefits bargaining: Some media reports have inadequately described our position on health benefits. NALC has made no agreements with the Postal Service on health care for active members or retirees, either within or outside of FEHBP. We have agreed to seriously explore mutually acceptable ways to deliver high-quality health benefits at a lower cost both to the Postal Service and to its employees. No agreement will be made that does not have the support of the NALC’s membership.
