As provided for in Article 9.1 of the NPMHU 2011 National Agreement, the wage scales for all Mail Handler employees will be adjusted upward effective November 16, 2013. This is the first of three guaranteed wage increases provided for in the 2011 contract. Specifically, with regard to career employees: “Effective November 16, 2013 – the basic annual salary for each grade and step of Table One and Table Two shall be increased by an amount equal to 1.0% of the basic annual salary for the grade and step in effect on February 15, 2013.” In addition, in accordance with Article 9.7 of the National Agreement, the hourly wage rate for Mail Handler Assistant (MHA) employees also will be increased, as follows: “The hourly rates for MHAs shall be adjusted by the general increases provided for in Article 9.1. In addition, MHAs will receive the following adjustments: Effective November 16, 2013, the hourly rates for all grades shall be increased by 1.0%.” The hourly wage rate for MHAs will therefore be increased by a total of 2.0% effective November 16, 2013.
