before November 20th deadline
The bargaining teams for the National Postal Mail Handlers Union and the United States Postal Service have now entered the final week of negotiations, with their current collective bargaining agreement set to expire at midnight on Sunday, November 20th. The parties are meeting at both the main table and subcommittee levels, and continue to discuss a wide array of topics, concepts, proposals, and counterproposals. While it is too early to predict whether a negotiated settlement will be reached by the contract deadline, the NPMHU bargaining team will continue to explore all options in an effort to reach agreement on a contract that will serve the NPMHU membership now and into the future.
Please stay tuned to the NPMHU website for additional Contract Updates as the bargaining process continues.
