Special Edition 2016 Bargaining Update

On December 16, 2016, the NPMHU and the Postal Service announced that they had reached a tentative agreement to establish the terms of their 2016 National Agreement. The agreement is subject to ratification by a majority vote of the Union’s membership.  The balloting process will begin no later than early January, with a 30-day period for return of ballots.

The contract will cover a period of three years and four months. At its core, the tentative agreement will continue to protect the jobs and living standards of all career mail handlers employed by the Postal Service, both now and in the future. The agreement also has substantial improvements for more than 5,000 Mail Handler Assistants (MHAs).

  • TENTATIVE AGREEMENT PROVIDES 3 WAGE INCREASES AND 7 COLA PAYMENTS
  • NO-LAYOFF PROTECTION CONTINUES
  • MAIL HANDLER ASSISTANTS RECEIVE EXTRA ADJUSTMENTS
  • OTHER WORK RULES IMPROVED
