  1. The contract expired May 2015. Retroactive should go back to when the contract expired, not November 2015 to July 2016. Sold out.

  2. Hey Kathy ,
    Get out your calculator! As a level 10 ET I make $66189 per year (base pay). A 1.2% pay raise will add $794 per year. The total yearly cost of my BCBS health insurance is $7122 per year (that’s my share plus the postal share). When I pay 1% more for health insurance that will be $71.22 more a year for me. 794- 72= $722. I’m still ahead $722 and thats NOT A WASH!!!!

  3. Why did we get screwed out of 6 months? This SHOULD have been retroactive to the date the contract expired.

  4. gee, thanks for the 1% raise. People, enjoy it now, as if Jan 1 2017, your rates for health care goes up 1% since that is the amount less the Postal Service will be paying on their share.
    it’s a wash!!.

  5. Why does it take until November to get the retroactive pay? Meanwhile enjoy the 1% thanks to your hard working union. Can’t wait for the carriers 1%

    • Thanks to the useless,management controlled NRLCA selling out,1% raises offset by another increase in the contribution to HB for the other unions. Middle finger goes the NRLCA’s stooge president.Postal workers would be better off if the NRLCA just dissolved.

  6. I’m planning to retire in September, will I still receive the retroactive pay and will it be reflected in my monthly retirement annuity?
