Regulars Working Other Routes and Sundays
The Postal Service and the NRLCA have signed the attached MOU regarding two temporary modifications to the USPS-NRLCA National Agreement. Beginning Sunday, February 25, 2022, and continuing through September 1, 2023,
regular rural carriers may volunteer to work on Sunday to deliver packages and may also volunteer to provide service on rural routes other than their assigned routes in the office. Regular rural carriers will be compensated at the overtime rate for hours worked on Sunday and for hours performing service on routes other than their assigned routes.
Regular rural carriers will not be required to work on Sunday or serve all or part of any other rural route. Regular rural carriers must volunteer to perform these additional services.
Prior to working volunteer regular rural carriers on Sundays or on other rural routes, management must comply with the scheduling provisions of the National Agreement.
