Mail handler Salary Increase is Effective November 25, 2017

  Mail handler Salary Increase is Effective November 25, 2017
NPMHU Contract Excerpt
The next Mail Handler salary increase is effective November 25, 2017. The increase is 1.3%. This is also the time when many of your fellow Mail Handlers increase their Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) contributions. Increasing your TSP contribution by 1% when your salary increases permits you to save for retirement without feeling the impact in your check. As an added bonus, TSP contributions are tax deferred which actually lowers your taxable income, unless you allocate your increase to a Roth contribution. Roth IRAs, however, are invested with after-tax income and grow tax-free. With the S&P 500 Total Return Year to Date Price Returns (Daily) of 17.45% for Nov. 13, 2017, that is a great investment. The 'C Fund' tracks the S&P 500.

To protect against statutory deadlines, the National Office has filed an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board, alleging that the Postal Service has failed to bargain in good faith by providing all of the relevant information requested by the National Union. The National Contract Administration Department has been pressing the Postal Service for months seeking information and worksheets relevant to the application of the Function-I Scheduler in any and all mail processing facilities that may be affected by this management tool. A copy of President Hogrogian's memorandum to Local Presidents and the NLRB charge are posted here for your review. (pdf)
