Implementation Dates for Pay Increases in New Contract Confirmed

 

March 17, 2022

On Wednesday, March 16, 2022, the Postal Service confirmed to the APWU important dates for implementation of the pay provisions of the 2021-2024 National Agreement. There were significant changes to the pay and leave provisions for this national agreement.

Below you will see “effective” and “scheduled implementation” dates for the various pay provisions of the agreement. The effective date is the date the pay changes will be paid from. The “scheduled implementation” date is the date the Postal Service has informed the APWU that the payrate will actual begin being paid. We have also included the pay check date the pay changes are scheduled to show up in pay checks/direct deposits.

  • 1.3% General Increases for all employees
    o Effective: November 20, 2021
    o Scheduled Implementation: June 4, 2022 (Pay Period 13-2022) o Pay Check Date June 24, 2022

  • 1.0% Additional for Postal Support Employees (PSEs)
    o Effective: November 20, 2021
    o Scheduled Implementation: June 4, 2022 (Pay Period 13-2022) o Pay Check Date June 24, 2022

  • $1310 Cost of Living Allowance (Career Employees) o Effective: February 26, 2022

    o Scheduled Implementation: June 4, 2022 (Pay Period 13-2022)

    o Pay Check Date June 24, 2022

  • New pay rates for Grade 11 Employees
    o Effective: September 21, 2021
    o Scheduled Implementation: June 4, 2022 (Pay Period 13-2022) o Pay Check Date June 24, 2022

  • Changes to the Grade 8 steps and slotting into new steps o Effective: June 18, 2022

    o Scheduled Implementation: June 18, 2022 (Pay Period 14-2022)

    o Pay Check Date July 8, 2022

  • Additional Pay for PTFs due to the Juneteenth Holiday

    o Effective: January 1, 2022
    o Scheduled Implementation: June 4, 2022 (Pay Period 13-2022) o Pay Check Date June 24, 2022

    Employees will receive retroactive payments for the difference in pay for the period between the “effective” date and the “scheduled implementation” date. The date of the retroactive payments has not been finalized and cannot be finalized until the programming is complete. Once programming is completed, we will meet with the Postal Service and get a definitive date for the retroactive payments. Once the definitive date is known, it will then be released

    Significant programming of the payroll systems is needed to implement these pay changes. Upon ratification of the agreement, our Union Family members who work in the Information Technology/Accounting Services units began working on the changes. We want to recognize and thank the IT/AS employees for their hard work on these important provisions and doing all they can to get the programming changes completed so that all those affected receive the pay rates required by the National Agreement.

    As a reminder, other provisions that do not have specific effective dates listed (e.g., the “repromotion rule”) went into effect on February 28, 2022, per Article 43 of the 2021-2024 National Agreement.
