Rolando, Executive Council installed

NALC President Fredric V. Rolando and the 27 other newly installed members of the union’s Executive Council took the oath of office on Saturday, Dec. 13, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in northwest Washington, DC.

With President Emeritus William H. Young, the installing officer, leading them, the men and women chosen to lead the NALC for the next four years recited the oath of office as prescribed by the NALC Constitution.

Rolando, who was re-elected last fall following a vote by active and retired NALC members, told the gathering that many challenges lie ahead for letter carriers and USPS.

The president also noted that the union would open negotiations for a new national agreement with USPS in a little over a year.

NALC and the other postal unions are the last, best line of defense for affordable, universal postal services in this country, he said, adding that the new Executive Council will fight tirelessly to preserve and strengthen the Postal Service for the American people.
