The United States Postal Service and the American Postal Workers Union announced that they have reached a contract agreement. The contract would last for four years and includes a 3.5% pay increase over the duration of the contract. The agreement would cover around 205,000 workers. The Postal Service and the National Rural Letter Carriers Association are still in negotiations, and contracts for two other postal workers’ unions will expire in November. The contract still has to be ratified by the APWU’s members.
