NPMHU Membership to Vote on Ratification of Tentative 2016 National Agreement

         A referendum of the entire NPMHU membership is now pending for ratification of the tentative agreement to establish the terms of the 2016 National Agreement between the NPMHU and the U.S. Postal Service. Ratification materials were mailed to all members on January 11, 2017.  To be counted, the completed ballots must be received in the designated P.O. Box in Washington, DC no later than 9:00 a.m. on the morning of Friday, February 10, 2017.

          On that day all returned ballots will be verified, counted, and certified by the American Arbitration Association to determine whether a majority of voting mail handlers have approved the tentative agreement.

          The terms of the tentative agreement are fully explained in the booklet that accompanies every ratification ballot.  All members are encouraged to review that booklet, and to learn more about the many improvements to the wages, benefits, and work rules for Mail Handler craft members. 

          National President Paul Hogrogian, National Secretary-Treasurer Mark Gardner, and the entire National Executive Board are urging all NPMHU members to take the time necessary to return their ballots, and to exercise their constitutional right to vote on ratification of the contract. 

          Please remember to cast your secret ballot to ensure its timely receipt by the February 10, 2017 deadline.  Any member who does not receive a ballot or the accompanying information by January 24, 2017 should call the Ratification Ballot Coordinator at 202-833-9095, extension 1025, to request those materials.
