An agreement has been reached between the Postal Service and the two Postmaster organizations (NAPUS and the League of Postmasters) to extend Postmaster pay talks until February 29, 2012. The original deadline for discussions on pay and benefits for Postmaster for Fiscal Years 2011-2015 was scheduled to end on January 27, 2012.
NAPUS President Bob Rapoza said that the talks should continue as long as meaningful discussions continue to move forward. Both organizational Presidents jointly notified the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) that the Postal Service had agreed to extend the discussions until the end of February. A decision on whether the two Postmaster organizations will request a resumption of the mediation process will be made after that date.
Talks continue to focus on minimum and maximum salary range improvements, health benefits contribution rates and changes to the Performance Evaluation System (PES.) Please check the NAPUS website for updates.
