Southeast Pennsylvania Merged Branch
Item to the December 2020 Postal Record
Eric K. Jackson, Branch 725 Vice- President & Scribe
Happy holidays! During this season more than most, we appreciate it this year because of all that this year
has entailed. The pandemic remains a great challenge for us. Because of this, our MOUs most likely will
be extended for another period. These MOUs have protected our members through this challenging time.
Through this storm, we have endured again. NALC has made the case for us in arbitration for our new
contract. While most members take this process for granted, I must tell you that it is the culmination of all
the time since our last contract. This is what the NALC excels at. So, rest assured that we will prevail.
The big news since our last “talk” is that this country elected the NALC-endorsed 46th president of
the United States of America. The impact is great for us. We went from an anti-union administration to a
pro-union administration. So, we will be able to play offense instead of being on the defense.
As carriers, we often do not understand the big picture. The importance of our legislative efforts, our Letter
Carrier Political Fund (LCPF), and its impact. These things become evident when we win a presidential
election. But all elections are important. NALC has always taught us that our relationships (established
through lobbying efforts) over the years always pay off.
During the pandemic, most of our customers have recognized our value. They really relied on us with
regard to the ballots. I could not have been more proud of our members and how we as a union (and
company) handled the political football that was the ballots. There is no way that anyone can blame the
working men and women of the Postal Service. Instead, I salute all of you!

Updates From Region 12 Office
Article 12 - Philadelphia District
You are being advised that the Eastern Area is implementing the withholding provisions of Article 12.5
(B)(2) for all full-time regular Level 10 and below Maintenance Craft positions, all Level 07 and below
full-time Clerk Craft positions, all Level 5 and below full-time Mail Handler Craft positions, and all City Letter

Tentative Agreement Ballots
The Tentative Agreement on the new contract cannot be finalized until it is ratified by the membership in
accordance with the NALC Constitution. The ballots for that vote should be received by you in the next
week or two. I urge you all to return these ballots as quickly as possible so you meet the deadline to have
it counted. If you do not receive your ballot please contact the Union office. Once we do agree on a
contract we can move on to other business like Local Agreements etc.
