The NAPS Legislative Support page ensures that NAPS members have the tools to act on behalf of and to protect the Postal and Fed/Postal communities. We regard the legislative bill-tracking program as an important and unprecedented step to enhance the effectiveness and advance the common interests of NAPS as well as the Fed/Postal Community we partner with by allowing members to become more readily aware of key pieces of legislation that may greatly impact the life and working condition of our members and the federal workforce.
Today, Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Rep. Mike Bost (R-IL) introduced the Postal Supervisors and Managers Fairness Act (H.R. 6085). The legislation requires the timely start of the consultation process between postal supervisor organizations and the Postal Service over USPS-proposed changes in pay and benefits for postal supervisors and mid-level employees. It also provides finality to the decision and recommendations of a factfinding panel, appointed by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, in the event of an impasse between a postal supervisor organization and the Postal Service over proposed changes in pay and benefits. Approximately 40,000 plus employees in the Executive Administrative Schedule (EAS) of the Postal Service are covered by the pay consultation process.
“NAPS is grateful to Representative Connolly, the chair of the House Subcommittee on Government Operations, and Representative Bost for their leadership in making the supervisor pay consultation process timelier and fairer,” said Brian J. Wagner, NAPS National President.
“Our campaign to pass the Postal Supervisors and Managers Act will mark a new era of grassroots
advocacy for NAPS,” said NAPS Executive Vice President Ivan Butts. “This would not be possible
without the assistance of legislative champions like Mr. Connelly and Mr. Bost. NAPS’ advocacy will emphasize to Congress the important role that EAS supervisors and managers play in keeping America’s mail system moving.”
NAPS urges all EAS employees to contact their House member to request their co-sponsorship of H.R. 6085.
