      MAIL HANDLERS RATIFY 2022 NATIONAL AGREEMENT The terms of the 2022 National Agreement between the NPMHU and the U.S. Postal Service were officially ratified on March 13, 2023.  The certified results show that over 84% of the membership approved the new contract, with the final vote tally at 6,617 in favor of ratification and 1,237 in opposition to ratification.

      The USPS has confirmed that some Postal Service employees are unknowingly providing their usernames and passwords to criminal websites, while attempting to access PostalEase.

      It is reported that employees are using Google and attempting to access PostalEase; however, Google in-turn has been redirecting users to criminally run websites that mirror the look and access of PostalEase.

      The USPS Corporate Information Security Office (CISO) is working with the Postal Inspection Service to facilitate notice to the impacted employees. The NPMHU is told that formal notification to all employees is forthcoming. We will post that notice when it is released.

      The USPS reports that representations have been made at the district level confirming Postal Inspectors are contacting impacted employees, as well as employees who may have unknowingly been compromised, and requesting their EINs and passwords.

      Please note . . . Postal Inspectors have not contacted postal employees and requested their EINs and/or passwords. Employees should never provide usernames and/or passwords to anyone.

      Financially impacted employees should immediately contact the Eagan ASC Helpdesk at 866-974-2733.  Staff members are available to assist.

      If you become aware of any employee experiencing access issues to PostalEase, they should immediately contact 877-477-3273 to request assistance.

      We will provide you with any additional information when it is made available to the NPMHU.

      The external link to PostalEase is being disabled today as employees are still clicking the fake LiteBlue sites. The NPMHU is told that notification will be sent from USPS HQs soon. Employees should call the help desk at 877-477-3273 for assistance with their LiteBlue needs until Postal Headquarters can resolve this issue.

      USPS, Office of the Inspector General, and Corporate Information Security Office (CISO) discovered fake LiteBlue website which closely resemble LiteBlue. (pdf) Corporate Information Security Office (CISO) has just confirmed the tentative date for implementing the new “multi-factor” protocol for enabling the restoration for access to LiteBlue is Sunday, January 15, 2023.

      The National Postal Mail Handlers Union and the Postal Service have reached a tentative agreement on a three-year contract, covering more than 55,000 employees represented by the Union.

      The tentative agreement is subject to a ratification vote by the Union Membership, a process that will take several weeks.

      Upon ratification, the agreement will expire at midnight on Sept. 20, 2025.
