The NPMHU is a national organization of employees dedicated to advancing
the interests of its members and their families. The primary purpose of the Union is to negotiate and enforce a National
Agreement with the U.S. Postal Service, a contract that establishes wages, cost-of-living adjustments and other pay increases,
working conditions, and fringe benefits for all workers within its jurisdiction. The Union also protects workers’ rights
by representing them in day-to-day problems on the job, like discipline, violations of seniority, discrimination, or other
management abuse, and addresses such work-place concerns as safety, health, and the impact of technological change.
Local 297 is one of 37 locals in the NPMHU, a division of LIUNA, Laborers'
International Union of North America and is affiliated with the AFL-CIO, American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial
