Director of City Delivery

Christopher Jackson was reelected director of city delivery by acclamation in 2022 at the 72nd Biennial Convention in Chicago. 

Jackson originally began his career with the U.S. Postal Service as a letter sorting machine operator clerk in 1981. He became a letter carrier in 1982 in Downey, CA, later transferring to Riverside, where he came under the guidance of Garden Grove, CA Branch 1100 officer Manuel L. Peralta Jr. The inception of his career defending letter carriers took place when he became a shop steward in Riverside’s Rubidoux Station.

“I would like to personally thank Manuel L. Peralta Jr. for the everlasting impression he left on me during the shop steward training class,” Jackson said. “There, Manny said, ‘Always remember we are here to represent letter carriers and to enforce the National Agreement, which our national officers have bargained for us.’ ”

Jackson served as an NALC Joint Route Inspection Team co-leader from 1993 through 2000 for San Diego District North, where he concurrently served on the Employee Involvement Local Joint Steering Committee and as NALC’s delivery point sequence (DPS) coordinator. In 1999 he became an arbitration advocate. He was also an area steward through 2001.

In 2001he became vice president of Branch 1100 until 2005, when he was appointed as a regional administrative assistant (RAA) for Region 1 by President William Young. He was elected national business agent for Region 1 by acclamation at the Biennial Convention in Anaheim in 2010. He was reelected to that post by acclamation in 2014 during the 69th Biennial NALC Convention in Philadelphia. President Fredric Rolando appointed Jackson director of city delivery in 2017 to fill a vacancy. He was elected to the position by mail balloting of NALC members in 2018.

Jackson received both intervention and Office of Workers’ Compensation training after his acceptance of the RAA position. He has held instrumental roles during eras of change for the Postal Service, including direct oversight of route inspection processes, serving as NALC team leader for Region 1.

“We, as leaders of NALC, must continue to bring in new talents to teach and educate them,” Jackson said, “to represent all letter carriers, to enforce the National Agreement and to be ready to step in as leaders of this great union.”

Jackson is the proud father of two Cal State Fresno graduates—Krystina and Emmanuel.
