Negotiations with Pacific Architects and Engineering, Inc. (PAE) for our Mail Transport Equipment Service Center (MTESC) were successfully completed with the membership’s unanimous ratification of the tentative agreement. The parties agreed to terms including a grievance process with just cause provisions. We were also able to achieve a “no lay-off” clause as well as a guaranteed floor in regards to a minimum number of full-time positions.
