The National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association (NRLCA) membership has ratified a new three-year labor contract with the Postal Service.
The contract covers approximately 119,000 employees represented by the union.
Highlights of the agreement include annual general wage increases, a reduction in the employer share of health premiums, and the preservation of workforce structure modifications achieved during a collective bargaining process in 2010.
Additionally, the Postal Service will create an employee category, assistant rural carrier, to handle weekend and holiday parcel deliveries.
“Overall, this contract results in continued restraint in rural carrier labor costs while giving the parties the opportunity to focus on the ongoing major task of establishing and implementing new engineered work standards for rural carrier employees,” said Labor Relations VP Doug Tulino.
The new agreement, announced in February, runs through May 20, 2018.
HIGHLANDS RANCH – The USPS is apologizing to a group of its customers in Highlands Ranch after a postal carrier left fliers in homeowner’s mailboxes, asking for them to artificially increase their mail volume so she could earn higher compensation.
According to the United States Postal Service, the flier was distributed to homeowners living along “Route 16” in the Highlands Ranch Golf Course community, which is classified as a rural route.
“During the period of March 12- March 25, 2016, I would really appreciate your help.
The USPS “counts” every piece of mail, parcels, etc. that I handle. The purpose of this 2- week sampling is to set my pay, paid time off, etc. for the ensuing year.
So please mail, mail, order, order, click and ship all you can…”
In the flier, the postal worker goes on to write: “increasing my workload during this “sampling period” might actually get me a paid-day off… What a concept!”
