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 21, 2020. This is the second of three guaranteed wage increases provided for in the 2019 contract. Specifically, with regard to career employees: Effective November 21, 2020 – 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.

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 second 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 21, 2020 (Pay Period 25) to be reflected in paychecks issued on December 11, 2020.
