Joint Contract Administration Manual
July 31, 2014
New USPS-NALC Joint Contract Administration Manual (JCAM) now available online
The NALC is pleased to announce that the 2014 JCAM is now available online by clicking here.
The 2014 JCAM has changed the way contract language appears to make it easier to photocopy and scan. It now is contained in text boxes throughout the document instead of being shaded in blue as was true in previous editions.
- The JCAM contains the authoritative, agreed-upon interpretations of the National Agreement. The National Association of Letter Carriers and the United States Postal Service have agreed at the national level that this is the definitive interpretation of the National Agreement.
- The JCAM should be used by the local parties to help resolve disputes at each step of the grievance procedure.
The National Association of Letter Carriers and the United States Postal Service are in the process of publishing the 2014 JCAM.
As in the past, the parties have agreed to share the cost of providing a printed copy of the new JCAM to each office.
A printed copy will also be sent to each NALC branch upon publication.
