There are nine collective agreements with seven unions that cover about 550,000 students. Negotiations with the unions include wages, many social benefits and terms and conditions of employment. There are currently negotiated agreements with the nine bargaining units. The latest agreement was created by the issuance of an interest rate notice in April 2009 for postal nurses represented by the National Postal Professional Nurses affiliated with the American Postal Workers Union, AFL-CIO (APWU). Collective bargaining with two of the four main postal unions, the APWU and the National Rural Letter Carriers` Association (NRLCA), will begin in 2010. Keywords: Contract, KNA, Collective Agreement As discussed in Chapter 3, due to the dramatic drop in mail volume, two interim route adjustment processes have been negotiated with the NALC. Under the revised agreement, all decisions on the assessment and adaptation of routes were taken jointly by teams of NALC and postal representatives, after verification of selected data and submissions from the scheduled carrier. These processes have eliminated 10,119 urban transportation routes, and if route adjustments are added outside of this process, approximately 11,000 urban routes have been eliminated this year. 2010 to 2015 Collective agreement (contract) Version bookmarks.

JCIM, Contract, Joint Contract Interpretation Manual, CBA The Postal Service and the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) continued joint training on contract application and support to the dispute resolution process by providing training to 80 postal service and NALC representatives responsible for processing and resolving disputes in the field. Training has been instrumental in reducing disputes and improving relationships. The postal service and the NALC have also jointly developed a widely used intervention process to identify and resolve the causes of disputes at the lowest possible level, and thus establish more cooperative and productive relationships between work and management. The quality of working life offers mail handlers and superiors the opportunity to get fully involved in identifying and solving problems in the workplace. The Postal Service and the National Postal Mail Handlers Union (NPMHU) jointly hosted the 11th Annual Quality of Working Life Conference. About 48 quality circles shared their ideas and more than 47 quality circles showed models of their solutions. Five quality circles were rewarded for their outstanding projects and achievements.
