Labor deal

The Postal Service and the National Postal Mail Handlers Union have reached a tentative agreement on a three-year contract, covering more than 55,000 employees represented by the union.

“This agreement is balanced and fair. It addresses both parties’ bargaining objectives in a financially responsible manner and furthers the objectives of the Delivering for America plan,” said Deputy Postmaster General and Chief Human Resources Officer Doug Tulino.

The tentative agreement is subject to a ratification vote by the union membership, a process that will take several weeks.

Upon ratification, the agreement will expire at midnight on Sept. 20, 2025.
