    Poor contract . Most members didn’t vote and most of those that did
    never bothered to read the proposed contract.

    I was part of the 4k. Evey time NALC negotiates a contract, they go back to the end of the previous one for back pay. This time they went back till November, short changing its members 6 months of back pay. This contract was for CCA and WA carriers . They like to compare us to the private sector, well UPS has higher pay, better benefits (Vacations) and Saturday off.
