Mail Handlers to Receive Wage Increase Effective November 20, 2021
As provided for in Article 9.1 of the NPMHU 2019 National Agreement, the wage scales for all Mail Handler employees will be adjusted upward effective November 20, 2021. This is the third of three guaranteed wage increases provided for in the 2019 contract. Specifically, with regard to career employees: Effective November 20, 2021 – the basic annual salary for each grade and step of Table One and Table Two shall be increased by an amount equal to 1.0% of the basic annual salary for the grade and step in effect on September 20, 2019.
In addition to the general increases provided in Section 9.1 above, MHAs will receive an increase of 1.0% annually, for a total of 2.1% effective November 23, 2019, 2.0% effective November 21, 2020, and 2.0% effective November 20, 2021.
The parties hereby agree that, effective November 20, 2021, the basic annual salary schedule (Tables One and Two) in effect on September 20, 2019 with proportional application to hourly rate employees, for those employees covered under the terms and conditions of this Agreement, shall be adjusted upward by an amount equal to 0.8% of the appropriate September 20, 2019 salary schedule.
As a result of the negotiated wage increase, and terms of the MOU re: PAY SCHEDULE ADJUSTMENT, all mail handlers will receive an additional increase of 0.8%. MHA’s will receive a total increase of 2.8%. Career Mail Handlers will receive a 1.8% increase.

Consistent with Article XIV, Section 3 of the NPMHU National Constitution, we will be implementing a regular membership dues increase of one dollar ($1.00) per pay period to correspond with the third guaranteed wage increase provided for in the 2019 National Agreement. We are attempting to time the dues increase to coincide with the wage increase that is effective on November 20, 2021 (Pay Period 25) to be reflected in paychecks issued on December 12, 2021.
