We Have a New Union Contract!!

Retroactive Back Pay and COLA Awarded

March 11, 2020

The big news is in – 200,000 postal workers represented by

the APWU have a new union contract!

Neutral Arbitrator and Interest Arbitration Panel Chair Stephen Goldberg

 issued his binding decision on the terms of the new union contract

between the American Postal Workers Union and the

United States Postal Service.

The Award was the product of 20 months of preparation, member and

local union input, negotiations, mediation, a strong contract campaign and

a well-prepared and presented arbitration case. Thirty-two workers

testified about their work. Officers and subject matter experts testified

for the union. A team of economists presented our case and rebutted

management’s presentations for union concessions.

“No interest arbitration is ever totally in favor of one side or the

other,” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein. “But we have achieved a

number of our major goals including retroactive annual pay raises,

maintaining of full (and retroactive) COLA, narrowing the gap between

the lower and higher career pay scales, the career conversions of

thousands of PSEs and maintaining tremendous job security. We should all

be proud to be union!”

“We also succeeded in stopping management’s deeply concessionary

demands to end no-lay protections, increase percentages of non-career

employees and create a new lower third tier of career employees,” shared

Industrial Relations Director Vance Zimmerman. “I want to thank the many

officers, witnesses, staff, attorneys, specialists and the members for their

many efforts in this long battle that helped bring it to a strong conclusion.”

Unless specifically changed by this Award, all rights and benefits in the

previous contract carry forward into the new one. These include seniority

and bidding rights, protections against unjust discipline, the grievance

procedure, annual and sick leave, holiday and overtime pay, health and

safety protections and so many of the important rights and benefits won

over many decades of struggle.

and significant changes contained in the Award.
