NALC, USPS Reach Tentative National Agreement
11.25.2020 - NALC reports: "The 2019 National Agreement will last 44 months, covering the period from September 20, 2019, to May 20, 2023. The agreement provides four annual general wage increases and seven cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs). In addition, effective Nov. 19, 2022, a new top step (Step P) will be added to the career letter carrier pay scales, which will be $444 annually greater than Step O. The agreement also provides for the automatic conversion of city carrier assistants (CCAs) to career status no later than after 24 months of relative standing, providing full fringe benefits and peace of mind to non-career carriers. It also maintains existing protections against subcontracting and layoffs." - NALC Bulletin (PDF) - Comments (Count)

USPS Reports Fiscal Year 2020 Results
11.13.2020 - PR Newswire reports: "As a result of the pandemic, and to a lesser extent, secular mail declines, the Postal Service's volume from mail services, its largest sales category, declined significantly for the full year, as First-Class Mail declined 2.3 billion pieces, or 4.2 percent, and Marketing Mail declined 11.5 billion pieces, or 15.2 percent. Mail volume began to show slight improvement in the last few weeks of the year, although this was driven in part by the temporary surge in political and election mail associated with the recent general election cycle. Net loss for the year was $9.2 billion, an increase of $363 million compared to 2019. Controllable loss was $3.8 billion, an increase of $334 million compared to the prior year." - COVID-19 Weighs on Postal Finances - USPS Offers Congress, Biden administration a shot at long-term postal reform - Comments (Count)
