    Contract Update: Union & Management “Locking Down” Ahead of September 20 Expiration. NNC Launches Contract Hotline for Instant Updates

    Apwu133
    By Apwu133,

    Beginning September 7, the National Negotiations Committee (NNC) will lock down with postal management for a week of intense contract negotiations as the September 20 expiration of the current collective bargaining agreement approaches.

    Both the APWU officers and postal management will be in the same hotel, meeting daily at main table negotiations, craft tables, and other subcommittees where they will hash out the various proposals. All meetings will be conducted respecting all COVIDrelated safety protocols including mask-wearing and social distancing.

    The NNC has been meeting regularly with postal management, and has submitted over 90 proposals. These proposals include items to protect job security and work opportunities, work rules and working conditions, increase career opportunities and improve conditions of work.

    The APWU will submit additional proposals in the coming weeks including ones for “economic provisions” – wage increases, COLA, step increases, etc.

    Throughout this process, the NNC is keeping the APWU National Executive Board and the Rank and File Bargaining Advisory Committee updated about the process and developments of negotiations. On August 24, the NNC hosted a second series of APWU Contract Town Hall events to update the members and answer questions. The Town Hall events and previous updates are available here.

    APWU Leadership will continue to keep the membership updated on the progress of negotiations.
