The NALC Bulletin: Quick news for carriers

The NALC Bulletin provides the latest information on the status of key legislation, major arbitration decisions and special activities of the union. During contract negotiations and/or contract arbitrations, the Bulletin also provides the general membership with speedy and detailed information on bargaining and arbitration testimony, as well as the first complete data on a new contract. 

The Bulletin is published generally on an as-needed basis, generally semi-monthly. Approximately 13,000 copies of the Bulletin are mailed to branch officials and shop stewards for posting on NALC bulletin boards at postal stations.
