National Agreement Between Usps And Nrlca
About LA NRLCAThe NRLCA is a union of the U.S. Postal Service that represents approximately 131,000 members of the bargaining unit in rural and suburban areas. The association was founded in 1903 to “improve the methods of rural factors, to use their working conditions with the United States Postal Service (USPS) and to promote a fraternal spirit among its members.” Rural factors serve approximately 78,500 routes in the United States. Among these factors, rural factors use their own vehicles on more than 36,900 lines. Rural airlines provide 44.8 million delivery points for a total of 3.7 million miles per day. The average distance for a rural road is 47 miles per day, but can range from 1 mile to 185 miles. www.nrlca.org The 2019 national agreement will last 44 months and will cover the period from September 20, 2019 to May 20, 2023. The agreement provides for four annual general wage increases and seven adjustment costs (COLAs). In addition, with effect on November 19, 2022, a new next step (stage P) will be added to the factor pay scales, which will be $444 per year higher than Stage O. The agreement also provides for the automatic transition of City Carrier Assistants (CCAs) to career status, no later than 24 months of relative position, providing benefits and total security to non-career holders. In addition, there is protection against subcontracting and redundancies. In 1906, national airlines were granted six national holidays.
Christmas was not one of them and did not become a public holiday for rural organizations until 1923. In 1924, a special association committee visited Washington, D.C., to advocate for equipment maintenance assistance (EMA). The following year, it became law. In 1928, the NRLCA introduced term limits for its officers, and in 1932 the term limits were lifted. In 1941, the rationing of tires and gasoline during the Second World War concerned rural organisms. NRLCA President Walker has obtained some exceptions to rationing for rural companies. In 1946, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) expressed interest in the inclusion of RFD in its union. In 1947, the NRLCA refused. To join the NRLCA, you must be inserted by the USPS into the Rural Carrier Craft as Carrier Rural Associate (RCA), Substitute Rural Carrier, Rural Carrier Relief (RCR), Part-time Flexible (PTF), Assistant Rural Carriers (ARC) or Regular Carrier (Design Code 71).  The NRLCA provides information and scholarships to its members at regional, regional, regional and regional assemblies, where all members can participate in a democratic process of policy development of the Association. The NRLCA provides a monthly publication called The National Rural Letter Carrier to keep its members informed of post-legislative issues of interest.
The NRLCA held its first annual national meeting in Chicago, Illinois, from September 11 to 12, 1903.
