New letter carrier contract affects jobs, pay, insurance


Arbitrators have resolved a bargaining deadlock between the U.S. Postal Service and one of its largest unions, awarding a contract providing for modest pay raises but a decrease in the employer contribution toward health insurance premiums, along with strengthened job security.

The arbitration panel had been convened after USPS and the National Association of Letter Carriers failed to reach a contract to replace one that expired in November 2011. The binding award covers four and a half years, effective retroactively.
