Usps Rural Carrier National Agreement

Posted Oktober 13th, 2021 by admin

Each year, during the delivery of their mail, rural and urban letter-makers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes on their route by postal customers participating in the NALC Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. To join the NRLCA, one must be employed by the USPS in the Rural Carrier Craft as a Rural Associate (RCA), Rural Carrier Substitute, Rural Carrier Relief (RCR), Part-time Flexible (PTF), Rural Carriers Assistant (ARC) or Regular Carrier (Design Code 71). [1] The NRLCA provides its members with information and community at district, district, country and country meetings, during which all members can participate in a democratic process of development of associative policy. The NRLCA makes available a monthly publication, The National Rural Letter Carrier, to keep its members informed of postal and legislative issues of interest. The National Rural Letter Carrier Agreement complies with Section 7(b)(2) of the FLSA. Some regular rural airlines assigned to a journey of 35 hours or more (31 miles paid or more) benefit from a guaranteed annual salary based on the number of hours or miles allocated to their itinerary. It is an understatement to say that this year has brought unprecedented challenges for rural airlines, as individuals and as artisans. It`s hard to imagine a more perfect storm. Despite the chaos and difficulties, I am optimistic about the ability of our craft to meet these challenges. In recent months, NRLCA officials have continued their efforts to reach an agreement on the terms of a new collective agreement with the postal service. The parties held several meetings, the last time a lengthy meeting took place this morning between President Stutts and USPS Vice President for Industrial Relations Doug Tulino. On July 3, 2012, arbitrator Jack Clarke imposed a new contract on the NRLCA and USPS, which lasted until 2015. [13] The NRLCA`s concessions in the new treaty mirrored the APWU`s concessions a year earlier.

Joey Johnson, the NRLCA`s director of labor, voted with the USPS arbitrator to accept the contract despite a two-year wage freeze, a two-step salary structure, and an increase in health care costs (from 19 percent to 24 percent). Replacement airlines and ASRs hired under the new contract faced a 20% reduction in their salaries with no increase in the cost of living. Compensation for new hires was reduced from US$19.45 to US$15.56 $US per hour. [14] Among the strengths of the agreement are annual general wage increases, a reduction in employers` share of health premiums, additional flexibility in the company in the use of rural transporters and improved health benefits for eligible non-professional workers in rural transporters. . . .
