    Following years of debate to build consensus, it is time to pass this vital and carefully constructed legislation, a bipartisan compromise bill that will bring financial stability to the Postal Service. The legislation includes key provisions of importance to the men and women who are the backbone of the Postal Service. First, H.R. 3076 eliminates the mandate that the Postal Service pre-fund its retiree health care benefits decades in advance, a requirement asked of no other public or private agency. Second, this legislation adopts private-sector best practice by maximizing the integration of postal annuitants into Medicare—a program to which the Postal Service and its workers have contributed more than $34 billion. Additionally, the legislation benefits the public by codifying the mandate to provide six-day mail delivery, which has been required by an Appropriation rider since the 1980s. Some 159 million business and residential customers rely on six-day delivery. The Postal Service is a vital public institution, self-sustaining and non-taxpayer-funded. Enactment of this legislation will restore and strengthen its financial stability, allowing it to improve service and respond to the evolving needs of American businesses and the families it serves.

  • NPMHU and USPS Sign MOU Regarding the COVID-19 Test Kit Fulfillment Pilot MHA Retention Lists
    Posted On: Feb 04, 2022

    The parties have agreed to a new Memorandum of Understanding regarding the COVID-19 Test Kit Fulfillment Pilot MHA Retention Lists. In this MOU, the parties have agreed that MHAs hired specifically for the COVID-19 test kit fulfillment pilot outlined in the January 12, 2022, Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) may be canvassed from a retention list of another installation.  However, MHAs on the retention list of the bid cluster/installation with the annex will be exhausted prior to canvassing from another installation or utilizing employees from another craft. 

    If hired as a result of this canvas, the MHA will retain his/her spot on the retention list of their original installation for a period of no more than two (2) years from the date of their separation and will retain their original relative standing date if reappointed.  If the MHA declines to return to the original installation during that two (2) year period, he/she will be removed from the retention list. 

    The MHA will begin a new relative standing date at the new installation.  If the MHA is separated for lack of work from the new installation, he/she will also be included on the retention list of the new installation for a period of no more than two (2) years from the date of separation from the new installation. If the MHA is still on the retention list of the original installation, he/she will be included on the retention lists of both installations.
