NEW WAGE CHARTS REFLECT $978 COLA

           The Bureau of Labor Statistics released its July 2011 Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) on Thursday, August 18. Based on this release, the Postal Service has confirmed that there will be a $978 cost-of-living adjustment increase for employees covered under the NPMHU National Agreement effective pay period 20, starting on September 10, 2011. This translates into approximately forty-seven cents per hour, and will be reflected in paychecks dated September 30, 2011.

         Reprinted below are the new wage charts – effective beginning on September 10, 2011 – that reflect this COLA adjustment, which is the last increase in wages under the expiring 2006 National Agreement.
