Chapter 12, Section 6: Union Bargaining

Postal unions have been bargaining with USPS over pay and other working conditions since the passage of the Postal Reorganization Act (P.L. 91-375) in 1970.

Postal unions have been bargaining with USPS over pay and other working conditions since the passage of the Postal Reorganization Act (P.L. 91-375) in 1970. The bargaining has not always resulted in a negotiated agreement, and at various times, the parties have had to move into binding arbitration. Collective bargaining rights are protected by the National Labor Relations Board.

As of December 2011, only the American Postal Workers Union had a signed contract. The Postal Service was still negotiating with the National Association of Letter Carriers, the National Postal Mail Handlers Union, and the National Rural Letter Carriers' Association.
