Update on legal action concerning 2017 ratification balloting

Legal claims challenging the conduct of the 2017 contract ratification vote have been dismissed by the U.S. District Court in Washington D.C.  The court’s order, issued January 4, found that those claims are now moot. As previously reported, on July 28, 2017, the Court denied the request of two NALC members (Thomas Houff of Richmond, VA Branch 496 and David Noble of Washington, DC Branch 142) for a preliminary injunction that would have deferred the counting of ballots on the proposed tentative 2016-2019 National Agreement between NALC and the U.S. Postal Service.
