Kevin Tabarus Takes the Helm as National Secretary-Treasurer

Hello Brothers and Sisters!

I am honored and humbled to have been selected by the National Executive Board to serve as your National Secretary-Treasurer. I would like to thank the entire National Executive Board for their support and confidence in me. I look forward to working with the smartest person in the NPMHU our National President Paul Hogrogian. He is an unrelenting proven Union Leader, representing the Mail Handler craft through these tumultuous times.

I would like to share with you my background and goals as National Secretary-Treasurer. 

I was raised in a Union household on Long Island NY. My family has deep seeded Union roots (my grandfather, father, uncles, and cousins).

You have an excellent team tirelessly working for you, the members, at the National Office. Everyone is invaluable and ready to help whenever needed. Transitioning to this new position, the team at National Headquarters shows their professionalism and knowledge. They really shine. I especially want to thank our outgoing National Secretary-Treasurer Mike Hora. He has provided me with his knowledge and guidance throughout our transition. Up until his last day, he was hard at work ensuring that this Union would continue to move forward. Congrats to Mike on his retirement, after his decades of service to this Union.

My goal is to continue to increase revenue and lower expenses for both the Locals and National Union. We all need to adapt to the ever-changing world. I will pursue increasing our membership. It is good but can improve. I also will hold the Postal Service accountable for their unnecessary delays with processing new member signups.

I vow to work tirelessly to leave this Union in an even better place than it is now.

New Memoranda of Understanding - Annual Leave Carryover for Leave Year 2024 and Annual Leave Exchange Option for Leave Year 2024

The Annual Leave Carryover for the 2024 Leave Year MOU allows for additional annual leave to carryover. In the 2022 National Agreement, the MOU on Annual Leave Carryover allows regular work force employees to carryover 440 hours of accumulated annual leave. The new MOU on Annual Leave Carryover for Leave Year 2024 expands that limit and allows regular work force employees to carryover 520 hours of accumulated leave from leave year 2023 to leave year 2024.
