Welcome...
to the National Postal Mail Handlers Union Local 297 web site.  This web site was established to keep our members informed on activities of their Union.  Our goal is to provide our members easy access to information  ranging from specifics pertaining to local agreements with the Postal Service, to issues and concerns affecting mail handlers nationwide. We have included a comprehensive resource section with direct links to numerous documents and search engines maintained by the NPMHU, as well as reference materials offered by a variety of related agencies and organizations. We truly hope you enjoy your visit to the NPMHU Local 297 web site.
 
Our Mission
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.
