The USPS, in response to the NLRB, has issued instructions that requests for information are not to be denied on the technical
ground that the local union official has no authority to make an information request. It also states “if the requested

request is unclear, management should attempt to clarify the request, rather than denying the request on a technicality.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the nalc partisan?

The NALC is not partisan and neither is our fight. Our struggle is for letter carrier jobs and we deserve support for that struggle from all political parties. All NALC members need to know and understand the process and how to get involved.

What is the 2011 national agreement for letter carriers?

This Agreement (referred to as the 2011 National Agreement) is entered into by and between the United States Postal Service (hereinafter referred to as the “Employer”) and the National Association of Letter Carriers, AFL-CIO (hereinafter referred to as the “Union”), pursuant to an Arbitration Award issued January 10, 2013.

What is branch 40?

FYI Branch 40 is THE largest branch in Region 11, which encompasses Ohio and Upstate New York. More than TWICE the size of Cincinnati or Columbus. Yet their voices are heard at NALC Headquarters, while ours are not. Why is that?

What does nalc do to challenge discipline?

NALC spends a significant amount of its resources grieving discipline, arguing that management lacks the required “just cause.” Discipline can accumulate in an employee’s personnel file and lead to discharge, so NALC may grieve to challenge any level of discipline, from a letter of warning to discharge.
