Postal Service, union contract talks go past deadline

By Ed O'Keefe

The U.S. Postal Service and one if its top unions are negotiating on a new multi-year contract well beyond the original Nov. 20 deadline to complete the talks, postal and union officials said Wednesday.

Neither side would share more details Wednesday on the ongoing talks between the USPS and the American Postal Workers Union.

APWU represents 220,000 postal clerks, mechanics, drivers, custodians and some administrative workers.

USPS last month failed to come to terms with the National Rural Letter Carriers Association, and a third-party arbitrator will help secure a deal.
