Instead of pre-hearings, on 4 September 2019, the parties submitted detailed and informative opening statements and exhibits in which they outlined what each considered important issues and how the panel should rule on these issues. Between September 4 and November 15, 2019, the panel held 13 days of trials in Washington, D.C. during which the two sides presented three numerous witnesses and exhibits. The transcript of the testimony is more than 2500 pages long and is supplemented by written testimony, presentations from lawyers and more than 240 exhibits. Hearings were submitted on December 16, 2019. If you still can`t find what you`re looking for, please email email@example.com. President Dimondstein`s video update on our new collective agreement (union contract).

Below, after the video, highlights and significant changes are included in the price. PSEs receive an additional increase of 40 cents per hour as follows: unless this premium is expressly changed, all rights and benefits of the previous contract will be transferred to the new contract. These include service and tendering rights, protection from unjustified discipline, claims procedure, annual and sick leave, leave and overtime benefits, health and safety protection, and many important rights and benefits obtained during many decades of struggle. The APWU argued for the return of higher measures to the lower schedule. In response, Adjudicator Goldberg narrowed the gap in career plans in two stages by adding additional steps in Class 5-8 for employees recruited after May 23, 2011 (there is no lower level for Grades 9 and Higher). Since PSEs do not receive COLAs, they benefit from larger annual increases: the 2015 national agreement between the Post Office and the APWU expired on 20 September 2018. Despite extensive negotiations and mediations that followed the 39 states.C No. 1207 (b), the parties were unable to agree on the terms of a new national agreement.
