NOTE: Article XVII, Section 3 requires the Employer to provide for review of all documents, files, and other information necessary in processing a grievance
Article XXXI, Section 3 requires that the Employer make available for inspection by the Unions all relevant information necessary for collective bargaining or the enforcement, administration, or interpretation of the Agreement
Section 8a(5) of the National Labor Relations Act states that it is an unfair Labor Practice for the Employer to fail to supply relevant information for the purpose of Collective Bargaining. GRIEVANCE PROCESSING IS AN EXTENSION OF THE COLLECTIVE BARGAINING PROCESS
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 information has some bearing on an issue between the parties, it should be disclosed to the unions. If an information request is unclear, management should attempt to clarify the request, rather than denying the request on a technicality.”1.____________________________________ 5.__________________________________2.____________________________________ 6.__________________________________3.____________________________________ 7.__________________________________4.____________________________________ 8.__________________________________ 1 Request for Information NOTICE TO SUPERVISOR/MANAGERCheck all boxes below that apply and return a copy to the NALC

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.
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.
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?
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.
