The National Postal Mail Handlers Union membership has ratified a new 40-month labor contract with the Postal Service.

The contract covers approximately 45,000 employees represented by the union.

“This agreement is fair and responsible, and it’s in the best interest of our employees and customers,” said Labor Relations VP Doug Tulino.

The new agreement, announced in December, runs through Sept. 20, 2019.
