wamailmom -- "If I'm recalling correctly, it seems that argument is what the arbitrator said. That NRLCA hadn't proven the two sides were similar enough to warrant us getting what they get."

-- Arbitrator Clarke included 3 paragraphs from Thirty-nine U.S.C. which addressed a standard of comparability to the compensation and benefits paid for comparable levels of work in the private sector of the economy. ( since comparing itself to the NALC was off the table, all the NRLCA had to do was compare itself to a private company that delivers to every US address every day )

-- Arbitrators Wells and Clarke seem to go out of their way to point out the failings of the NRLCA negotiating team with such terms as: failed to advance..., failed to submit persuasive evidence..., limited evidence does not support..., union provided no rebuttal..., did not present any compelling evidence..., failed to prove they were entitled to..., unrebutted ( USPS ) evidence..., the NRLCA's argument ignores the role of a National Panel Arbitrator..., NRLCA's evidence does not show the Chairperson..., well , you get the idea.

-- Considering the arbitrators are the ones who need to be impressed, it does not look like the NRLCA negotiators are living up to expectations.

It's a good thing those negotiators are continually hired (elected) back to do the job.
