NALC continues to monitor USPS response to hacking

NALC continues to monitor the Postal Service’s response to the cyber breach in September that compromised Postal Service computers containing workers’ personal and employment information, including medical, injury compensation, banking, Social Security and other personally identifiable information.

Current and former USPS workers whose information was compromised by the breach soon can expect to receive from the Postal Service a letter that contains important new information.

As previously reported, NALC has filed an unfair labor practice charge against the Postal Service with the National Labor Relations Board alleging that USPS violated its duty to bargain with the NALC over the impact of the security breach on letter carriers. The charge remains pending.

Individual letter carriers may elect to enroll in the credit monitoring services offered by the Postal Service, with the knowledge that NALC may seek different or additional remedies.
