    They have been working for about 7 months under the old contract.
    Looks like they have a 5 year contract and wage increases of 8.85 percent over five years along with regular cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) and a single lump-sum COLA payment of $686 for the period between July 2006 and May 2007.

    And they are going to do away with some lower paid part timer workers.

    I see alot of letter carriers in my area, off work by 5:30 pm. Gee that would be nice.

    Mail carrier on my route is home by 16:00 but starts at 6:00. I would start that early if I could be off by that time. I can do a lot more with family in the evening than in the morning hours.
