Pay Increase Coming Nov. 25

WEB NEWS ARTICLE #: 
107-2017

11/02/2017 - The third general wage increase under the 2015 Collective Bargaining Agreement will be effective Nov. 25, 2017. This wage increase will be reflected in the paycheck workers will receive on Dec.15, 2017.

Career employees will receive a pay raise of 1.3 percent. Postal Support Employees (PSEs) will receive a pay increase of 2.3 percent – PSEs do not receive cost-of-living adjustments and for that reason were awarded an additional 1 percent in their annual wage increases.

The next career employee COLA increase is due in early March, 2018.

Under the terms of the APWU Constitution, an across-the-board salary increase results in a small dues adjustment. As such, dues will be increased by .83 cents for career employees and .92 cents for Postal Support Employees (PSEs).  This is in accordance with Article 16, Section 2(a) of the APWU Constitution and By-laws.

Updated pay scales are included in the November-December edition of The American Postal Worker magazine and can be viewed on the union’s website at www.apwu.org/resource-types/pay-scales.
