From Joyce Patteson NRLCA District Representative:
It is the responsibility of each post office, station, and/or branch to provide adequate disinfectant cleaning supplies (including disinfectant wipes) gloves, masks and hand sanitizer. If your office is failing to provide you with the above mentioned items please let me know at once by sending an email to Joyce.Patteson@nrlca.org. We need to ensure the safety of our rural carrier family and other employees as well Thank You for your service to your customers. Take care, be safe, be well, and protect yourself

The National Office has advised the State Boards today (March 16, 2020) that it is also appropriate for local units to postpone their meetings to a later date. The Board has therefore decided that cancelling the county meetings is the best course of action. For those current county officers, and members wanting to be a delegate to State Convention, we will be following these rules: 1. The Board is asking that the current County Officers continue in their position until a county meeting is safe to be held, following all DOL guidelines on advance meeting notices. 2. In order to preserve members rights to participate in the affairs of the organization all members are advised if they want to be a delegate to State Convention they must be a member in good standing as of May 5, 2020. Upon checking in with the credentials committee at State Convention, membership will be checked to meet this qualification. The credentials committee, after being called upon by the President at the opening of convention, will announce the stats for each county. Those delegates in each county will then decide who will be their delegate-at-large. 3. Any proposed resolutions and constitution changes that would have been presented at the county meeting can be presented at the State Convention under new business. 4. Those county officers that have reserved venues for your county meeting should cancel those reservations. There is so much conflicting information going around right now, and that adds to the confusion and uncertainty. Many of you are worried about your friends and family, as well as your jobs. We urge you to frequently check at nrlca.org for any updates that might impact your workplace, and that you take those precautions you find necessary to keep yourself and your family healthy. As more information becomes available, we will pass it along. Thank you and stay strong. Your WARLCA State Board

OWCP/Retirement Seminar Canceled

After careful consideration and consultation with the NRLCA Office the State board has decided for the safety of our members to cancel the OWCP/Retirement Seminar. If your check has been deposited a refund will be issued to you, if it has not been deposited then your check will be mailed back. The WARLCA state board hopes to be able to hold this seminar again at a later date so stay tuned.


Out of concern for the safety of its members and their families the NRLCA has cancelled Western States Conference. Registration refunds will be issued as soon as possible.
