NPMHU Prevails in National Arbitration Regarding MHA Discipline



We are extremely pleased to announce that the NPMHU has prevailed in its National Arbitration against the Postal Service over whether the Postal Service may consider or rely upon discipline issued to an MHA if that employee is later being disciplined after he or she has been converted to career.  The key conclusion of Arbitrator Das’ award is that “former MHAs who are converted to career positions start afresh for disciplinary purposes.” 


Arbitrator Das concluded that “discipline issued to an employee while employed as a noncareer Mail Handler Assistant (MHA) may not be considered or cited in determining whether to issue discipline to the employee after his or her conversion to full-time career status.”
