Who remembers when Postmaster General Bolger petitioned the National Labor Relations Board (NRLB) for a unit clarification to establish one national bargaining unit? The four postal unions fought his petition and won.
- Mail Agency Asks Unity Bargaining
- Postal Workers Criticize Bargaining Delay
- Postal Service Modifies Contract Stand
- Postmaster General Orders Start of Contract Negotiations
Since then, the Postal Service has used a divide-and-conquer strategy with the unions, successfully playing one against the other.
