The Postal Record
Published monthly since 1888—before the NALC was founded—The Postal Record is received by every member of the NALC. The magazine presents the union's agenda on political, legislative, labor and workplace issues. It also explains how members can help make their union stronger, their Postal Service better and their country more responsive to the needs of working people.
