APWU: Seventh COLA, effective March 7, 2015, likely to be $0.00

For Employees Covered by the National Agreement

In December 2014 the CPI-W unadjusted Index (1967=100) fell for the third month in a row (and four out of the last five months) to 684.828 driven largely by falling oil prices. Until the Index rises above 698.58, no COLA will be due.
