USPS, Mail Handlers Extend Contract

Share this article:
The National Postal Mail Handlers Union ratified a two-year contract extension with the U.S. Postal Service last week.


This action results in a 1.3 percent wage increase for about 58,000 postal employees effective Nov. 27, 2004, and a 1.3 percent increase effective Nov. 26, 2005.


Other terms of this contract extension, which covers Nov. 20 of this year through Nov. 20, 2006, provide for the continuance of employees' current cost-of-living allowance and the establishment of a joint task force to discuss issues relating to repositioning employees.
