Arbitration began Feb 17, 2016

Opening Day, Fighting for Justice

Opening day Dimonstein introduction by President Dimondstein

What we are fighting for:

Arbitration Sticker 2016Win fair wage increases; Protect cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs); Defend the no-layoff clause; Win improvements for Postal Support Employees (PSEs) and Part-Time Flexibles; Secure more career jobs; Redefine “full-time” so that it once again guarantees a 40-hour work week; Limit subcontracting, and Win better service for our customers.

What they are fighting for:

Management wants to gut the COLA for current workers and is seeking a new tier in the career workforce that would earn no COLAs; have virtually no protection against layoffs, and earn less annual leave and sick leave than current employees.
