NPMHU ACHIEVES 10,000 MHA CONVERSIONS TO FULL-TIME REGULAR

In February 2013, a three-member arbitration panel established to determine the terms of the 2011 National Agreement between the National Postal Mail Handlers Union and the U.S. Postal Service released its Award establishing a new category of non-career mail handler called the Mail Handler Assistant or MHA From that point forward, the MHA category has served as the entry point for all future career mail handlers to be hired by the Postal Service.

The NPMHU recognized from the very beginning that MHAs, both before and after their conversion to career, would become important components of the future of the organization. As of Pay Period 6 of 2018, there are a total of 6,395 MHAs on-the-rolls of the Postal Service, which makes up approximately 14.4% of the NPMHU bargaining unit. Moreover, in July 2018, the NPMHU will acquire our 10,000th MHA conversion to full-time status as a career mail handler. We welcome these new career employees to their permanent status with the Postal Service and the NPMHU.
