On June 27, 2019 the National Postal Mail Handler Union (NPMHU) and the United States Postal Service initiated contract negotiations. NPMHU National President Paul Hogrogian and USPS Postmaster General Megan Brenan gave opening statements creating the foundation for this year’s bargaining process.
As most of you know, our National Agreement with the Postal Service is scheduled to expire on September 20, 2019. The goal is to obtain a tentative National Agreement, subject to membership ratification, by that date. If no final agreement is reached, there are alternative dispute resolution procedures that would determine the changes to the National Agreement including final and binding interest arbitration.… Keep reading...
The Federal Express Courier Company (FedEx) will be implementing a 7-day delivery program that unfortunately will be taking most of the Amazon mail package volume from the Postal Service. The West Valley Facility is expecting a loss of approximately 100,000 packages per day.
Now, more than ever, Mail Handlers need to perform the scanning function on every piece of equipment in every section. I specially want to encourage Mail Handlers working on the Dock Operations at the Phoenix GMF, Tucson GMF and West Valley facilities to continue to perform the scanning function, including scanning empty equipment.
Again, scanning is a major factor in determining additional positions for our Mail Handler craft.… Keep reading...
Since 2013, Mail Handler Assistant employees have been the newest members of the NPMHU bargaining unit. They are hired based on postal exam and other routine hiring criteria, and are eligible for conversion to career status based on their respective relative standing. The MHA category continues to serve as the only entry point for all future career Mail Handlers to be hired by the Postal Service. MHA employees are a very important part of our union.
We are happy to announce effective Saturday June 22, 2019 the following MHA employees will be converted to full-time Career Mail Handler.
(REVISED: Conversions will be official starting July 20, 2019)
