Ballot Ratification Update

Beginning on Jan. 11, every active letter carrier eligible to vote in the contract ratification election was mailed a copy of the proposed 2019-2023 National Agreement between NALC and USPS. Mailing of ballots was completed on January 20. Included in the mailing is a letter from NALC President Fredric Rolando, a summary of the contract’s provisions, a ballot and secrecy envelope, a return envelope and instructions for casting a vote.

The original deadline for a ballot to be received and counted was February 16. Due to issues with receiving ballots in several locations, this deadline has been extended to March 1.

NALC encourages all members to mail your ballot as soon as possible after receiving it. If you are eligible to vote on the proposed agreement and have not received a ballot by February 2, call NALC Headquarters at 202-662-2836 (9 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Eastern Time) no later than February 5 to request a replacement ballot. A replacement ballot will be mailed after your eligibility is verified.
