On April 7, 2020, National Agreement between the National Postal Mail Handler Union (NPMHU) and the United States Postal Service was officially ratified. The certified results showed that over 96% of the membership approved of the contract. Listed below are some of the implementation dates:
- New wage rates, which will reflect the November 2019 general wage increase and the March 2020 COLA payment, will be implemented in Pay Period 10, which begins on April 25, 2020.
- The date for issuing back payments that apply to these new rates on a retroactive basis back to November 2019 is still unknown. We will post those dates as soon as they are determined.
