Photos From the NALC 70th Biennial Convention!




Our State's delegates have returned from the NALC 70th Biennial Convention in Los Angeles, California with lots of information to share with their local branches here in North Carolina. Area One Representative Bill Heidt of New Bern, NC was among those who attended the event and he brought home some photos he took while there. Our thanks to brother Bill for allowing us to share those with you. To check them out, click here. Enjoy!

Convention Grievance Moratorium

NALC and the U.S. Postal Service have agreed to a 31-day moratorium on time limits for the processing of all grievances at the local, regional and national levels due to the 70th biennial NALC Convention. Under M-01874, the moratorium starts on Aug. 7 and concludes on Sept. 6.

As they say in Hollywood's TV and movie studios when a production is completed,

"It's a wrap!"

The historic 70th NALC Biennial Convention wrapped up in Los Angeles on August 19th, but the memories and the good vibes continue. Among those are videos, pictures and daily reports on the many events that took place during that week, both in and outside the convention center. If you didn't attend or did attend and would like to view things you may have missed during those very busy five days, you can see them on the NALC's website, including the web-only Friday Convention Chronicle, "Looking Back, Moving Forward."
