The Urgent Need for Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) Reform
The Biden Administration needs to use its legal authority granted by Congress to rectify the half-century-old unfair pension obligations negatively impacting postal workers and postal ratepayers.
It’s time for President Biden to direct the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to adopt the reforms provided in the 2010 “Segal Study” to rectify the unfair valuation of Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) funds for postal workers.
The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) is the sole representative of city-delivery letter carriers employed by the U.S. Postal Service. Founded in 1889, NALC represents 285,000 active and retired city letter carriers delivering to 152 million homes and businesses in every city, suburb, and town in America.
The U.S. Postal Service is the indispensable foundation of the nation’s mailing industry. According to the 2022 Mailing Industry Job Study conducted by the Envelope Manufacturers Association, 7.9 million jobs are supported by the U.S. mailing industry.
The Postal Service is also the largest civilian employer of military veterans in the United States, and more than one in five letter carriers is a veteran.
Through NALC’s AFL-CIO affiliation, letter carriers join millions of fellow workers in the struggle for a better life for all Americans. To learn more about the NALC and its support for the essential workforce within The U.S. Postal Service, visit here.
