The NRLCA has been a weak union since the 1978 contract when it agreed to an annual pay cut for rural carriers of $2000 rather than go to national arbitration like the other postal unions.
After the NALC severed bargaining ties with the APWU in 1994, NALC President Vince Sombrotto tried to get the rural carriers union to join the NALC. His effort was unsuccessful.
If this decertify petition is successful, I doubt the Teamsters would be interested. Their business model is very different from ours.
