September Update - From the Local President


The Local Union is forever engaged in two extremely broad activities. Addressing the issues which impact the Members on a day-to-day basis, that is to say contract administration, and looking down the road to plan for the future. The question of where your Local Union is going to be a year from now, five years from now, or ten years from now, is continually being considered by the Officers of the Local Executive Board and Local Union Council. While no one can predict with certainty what the future may bring, we can look at all the possibilities and evaluate what outcomes may be more likely or less likely.

June Update - From the Local President


As we head towards summer, grievance activity remains high in most Branches. This is particularly true in the North Dakota Branches. The bulk of our grievances involve the same old issues, discipline, management doing Mail Handler work, and cross craft violations. Surprisingly, the implementation of the 2022 National Agreement is progressing smoothly, or at least more smoothly than I was expecting. Still, we’ll be watching for any dips in the road as not all provisions of the 2022 National Agreement have been fully implemented.
