Bid counts renewed effective May 21, 2023

The USPS and NALC have renewed the bidding procedures outlined in Article 12.3.A of the National Agreement, effective May 21, 2023. This renewal allows city letter carriers to continue bidding on, and subsequently be awarded, vacant job assignments during the ongoing contract negotiations and in the event the parties come to an impasse and proceed to interest arbitration.  Successful bids following May 21, 2023, will count toward the maximum bids established in the next National Agreement. A letter dated June 2, 2023, from USPS acknowledging this renewal (M-01994) can be found in NALC’s Materials Reference System on the NALC website.
