USPS and letter carriers union reach tentative contract agreement

The Postal Service and the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) have reached a tentative agreement on a five-year contract. If ratified by union members, the agreement will run through Nov. 20, 2011, and affect approximately 222,000 career employees who deliver mail to residences and businesses on city delivery routes.

The Postal Service and the NALC had been scheduled to enter into binding interest arbitration later this year after being unable to reach a new tentative contract. If the current tentative agreement is ratified, the arbitration will not be needed. The Postal Service and the NALC formally opened national contract negotiations in August 2006.
