NALC President testifies to arbitrators: Click here to read NALC President Fredric V. Rolando’s concluding testimony to the three-member interest arbitration board that will set the terms of a new National Agreement between the NALC and the U.S. Postal Service.

Rolando’s testimony in particular discusses the unique contributions the NALC and its members make to the Postal Service. The presentation explains that NALC’s proposals for the 2012 National Agreement are intended to reconcile the Postal Service’s evident need to adapt to changing financial and business conditions and the union’s goals to protect the job security of its members and maintain the wage and benefit standards its has achieved over four decades of collective bargaining.  Special emphasis is given NALC’s determination to preserve the contractual ban on sub-contracting and our drive to create a career path for non-career, transitional employees.

The union anticipates that arbitration board chairman Shyam Das will announce the board’s binding award decision soon.
