Nolan selected as neutral arbitrator

Arbitrator Dennis R. Nolan has accepted appointment as the neutral chair of the three-person arbitration board that will be responsible for resolving the current bargaining impasse between NALC and the Postal Service.  Under the law, both NALC and postal management are each required to name one arbitrator and select a third neutral arbitrator to serve as the chair of the interest arbitration board.  NALC’s general counsel, Bruce Simon, will serve as NALC’s party arbitrator.  Attorney Robert Dufek will represent the Postal Service on the arbitration board.  Nolan has previously served as a national arbitrator under the NALC-USPS National Agreement.  Hearings in the interest arbitration are expected to begin in the spring.
