2022 Contract Update #10

2022 No. 10 – September 20, 2022 (pdf)

You are reading the tenth Contract Update produced and distributed by the NPMHU during the course of 2022 negotiations. These updates, along with the Union’s magazine and monthly bulletins, will keep mail handlers throughout the country informed and involved in the issues raised during this round of bargaining

          The final days and hours of bargaining over the terms of the NPMHU-USPS 2022 National Agreement have come to a close, with the parties unable to reach a tentative agreement over all of the terms and conditions that need to be covered by the National Agreement as of contract expiration at midnight on September 20, 2022. 

Discussions are continuing, however, and thus the parties have agreed to extend their negotiations past last night’s deadline to give their bargaining representatives additional time to reach a comprehensive settlement agreement.

          Though many topics have been discussed, there are still several items left for both parties to discuss. Due to these unresolved issues, the parties have agreed to extend their negotiations based on their shared hope that an overall agreement can still be reached without the interference of a third-party arbitrator.

          More details about the past three months of bargaining, and the plans for future negotiations, will be shared in NPMHU publications and discussed with representatives of the Local Unions at a virtual meeting scheduled for Friday, September 23, 2022, with the NPMHU Negotiations Team.

          As always, please watch your bulletin boards and the National website for the latest information.
