Career employees represented by the APWU will receive a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) of $686 per year beginning with paychecks dated Sept. 26, in accordance with the 2010-2015 Collective Bargaining Agreement. The raise is the result of an increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI-W).
The 2010-2015 Collective Bargaining Agreement provides for COLAs based on increases in the January and July CPI in 2012 through 2014, and January 2015. (The contract expires in May 2015.)
So far, employees have received cost-of-living adjustments totaling $1,830. The final COLA, based on the January 2015 CPI, will be effective in March 2015.
Career employees will also receive a 1 percent increase in their annual salaries effective Nov. 15, which will be reflected in paychecks dated Dec. 5. Postal Support Employees (PSEs) do not receive COLAs, but will receive a raise of 2.5 percent effective Nov. 15, 2014.
