  NALC files Lawsuit on Consolidated Casing Initiative

The NALC filed a lawsuit against the Postal Service in the federal district court in Washington D.C. The suit asks the court to issue an injunction stopping the Postal Service from continuing its Consolidated Casing Initiative until NALC’s pending national level grievance is resolved. The grievance over consolidated casing is presently scheduled for arbitration in December. Further developments will be reported as they occur.

Letter carrier Mary Granados killed in Odessa, Texas

Fredric Rolando, president of the National Association of Letter Carriers, released the following statement today, Sept. 1, about the death of letter carrier Mary Granados in Odessa, Texas.

"We are deeply saddened by the senseless murder of Odessa, TX Branch 3964 letter carrier Mary Granados, 29. We send our deepest sympathies and heartfelt prayers to Mary's family, loved ones, friends and co-workers.  She was doing the job she loved and was serving the public when she was shot and her postal vehicle hijacked in Saturday's shooting rampage. Our thoughts are with sister Granados and with all the victims of this tragic event."

Connecticut letter carrier killed on his route

NALC is deeply saddened to learn that 59-year-old letter carrier Daniel Nacin, a member of Branch 86 in Hartford, Connecticut, was killed in a car accident on his route, Thursday, August 22.  Several Enfield, Connecticut police cars were in pursuit of a fleeing pick-up truck, when the offender ran a red light attempting to cross state lines and crashed into Nacin’s LLV. Nacin was the Secretary-Treasurer of Branch 86 and vice president of the Connecticut State Association of Letter Carriers. He recently celebrated his 40-year anniversary as a letter carrier in May.

“We are deeply saddened at the tragic, heartbreaking loss of Brother Nacin, a letter carrier dedicated to tirelessly serving his customers and his NALC brothers and sisters in Branch 86 and the state of Connecticut.  In this difficult time, we send our thoughts, prayers and deepest condolences to Dan’s family, friends and the letter carriers he was so dedicated to serving.” NALC President Fredric Rolando said.

We are in Prime Vacation Time so CCAs that are on the job over 60 days can request a holdown on a Route but not a Float. If assigned to a Float by Management you are entitled to the higher pay so talk to your Shop Steward. CCAs and Unassigned Carriers can holdown long term too on Routes where the Regular will be out on an extended leave due to personal or medical issues. So you can use this form to put in a Holdown Request and give it in to Management but don't forget to make a copy for yourself and a Shop Steward.
