The American Postal Workers Union (APWU) membership has ratified a new three-year labor contract with the Postal Service.
The contract covers more than 200,000 employees represented by the union.
Highlights of the agreement include annual general wage increases, semiannual cost-of-living adjustments, continued operational flexibility through the use of an expanded postal support employee workforce, and measures designed to address critical employee recruitment and retention needs.
“This agreement is fair and balanced. It addresses both parties’ bargaining objectives in a financially responsible manner and is consistent with the objectives of the Delivering for America 10-year plan,” said Deputy Postmaster General and Chief Human Resources Officer Doug Tulino.
The new agreement runs through Sept. 20, 2024.
