    The American Postal Workers Union and the U.S. Postal Service have reached a tentative three-year Collective Bargaining Agreement, announced APWU President and Lead Negotiator Mark Dimondstein.

    The Tentative Agreement was reached on December 9th and, in accordance with the APWU Constitution, was presented by the National Negotiating Committee to the Rank & File Bargaining Advisory Committee. On December 10th, the Rank & File Committee unanimously approved the Tentative Agreement for a ratification vote of the members. 

    “This is great news! We have reached an agreement that protects the rights and interests of our members,” Mark Dimondstein said. “The tentative National Agreement contains annual wage increases, protection of full COLAs and no-layoff protections, new opportunities for career work, gains for part time flexibles and a host of other improvements.”

    The Tentative Agreement has the unanimous approval of the National Negotiating Committee and the support of the National Executive Board. 

    “I salute the entire bargaining committee for their outstanding and collective work. I was proud to serve on the National Negotiating Committee along with Industrial Relations Director Vance Zimmerman, who served as chief spokesperson for the union, Executive Vice President Debby Szeredy, Secretary-Treasurer Elizabeth “Liz” Powell, Clerk Craft Director Lamont Brooks, Maintenance Craft Director Idowu Balogun, Motor Vehicle Director Michael Foster and Support Services Director Steve Brooks. The entire Negotiating Committee appreciates the due diligence and hard work exhibited by the Rank & File Bargaining Advisory Committee.”

    Many headquarters officers, national business agents, and staff were also involved in the long process of planning and preparation of negotiations. APWU members across the country waged a strong campaign united in the demand for a good contract that rewards postal workers for their dedication and hard work.

    “We look forward to the membership having an opportunity to vote on this tentative agreement that we believe offers improvements in the wages, hours and working conditions in all APWU crafts,” Director Vance Zimmerman said. 

    A detailed summary of the Tentative Agreement will be published on the APWU website Saturday December 11th.  Furthermore, the APWU National Negotiating Committee will hold a webinar “town hall” with the members December 16th at 2:00pm. 6pm and 9pm EST. Register at apwu.org/townhall. 

    In the coming weeks more information will be shared on the ratification process.

    President Biden Names Two Nominees to Board of Governors

    Apwu133
    By Apwu133,

    Today, President Joe Biden announced two new nominees to the Postal Service Board of Governors to replace outgoing governors. The President nominated Dan Tangherlini, who served as Administrator of the General Services Administration in the Obama Administration and has worked in various roles in the District of Columbia government. He also nominated Derek Kan, who worked in the Trump Administration’s Office of Management and Budget and the Department of Transportation. 

    Their appointments are to fill the spots on the Board being vacated by Governors Ron Bloom and John Barger. Bloom’s term expired last year; he was finishing a holdover year which ends on December 8. Barger’s term expires the same day, but he will stay on the Board until a replacement is confirmed by the Senate. 

    The APWU looks forward to meeting with the nominees, sharing our views on matters affecting postal workers and learning where they stand on the future of the public United States Postal Service.
