03/06/2007 - The USPS has notified the APWU that it expects to disburse back pay for the period from Nov. 25, 2006, through Feb. 2, 2007, in paychecks dated May 18 (Pay Period 10-2007). The retroactive pay will reflect a 1.3 percent raise for five pay periods (Pay Period 25-2006 through 03-2007).

The 1.3 percent raise was negotiated for all APWU-represented employees as part of the 2006-2010 Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The National Executive Board voted Feb. 13 to waive the national union’s portion of dues on the retroactive pay. Local or state organizations that wish to absorb their portion of the dues increase must notify the APWU Per Capita Department in writing, no later than April 27, 2007. For additional information about waiving retroactive dues, contact the Per Capita Department at 202-842-8505.

Upgrades for all APWU-represented employees will be applied on Feb. 16, 2008; there will be a 1.2 percent raise, effective Nov. 21, 2009.
