Attn All non-members


Dear fellow Rural Carrier,

I’d like to take a few minutes of your time to offer you an opportunity to take advantage of the many
benefits that NRLCA membership offers.  One of the most important aspects of being successful in this job, is
the knowledge this union provides you with of your rights, the contract and what to do if you feel you might
need representation.

The NRLCA holds the exclusive right to represent the rural carrier craft. The NRLCA negotiates all
labor agreements with the USPS, which includes our salaries.  NRLCA also represents rural carrier interests in
Congress.  You really need the benefits and protection the NRLCA can offer and our craft truly needs the
support your membership can provide.

This Association needs you.  When you join, we are able to keep our numbers strong and provide you
with the information you’ll need to safeguard your future as a rural carrier.  Membership in this Association
entitles you to your state’s newsletter Beaver Bulletin and “The National Rural Letter Carrier”, the monthly
magazine provided by the NRLCA as well as access to the NRLCA website. These publications give you the
information you’ll need to succeed as a postal employee. Membership provides you the opportunity to attend
district and State Meetings, where both State and/or National Officers of the Association are ready to answer
your questions.  It provides you with an opportunity to speak up and be heard when it comes to making changes
to the constitution and National contract thru the passing of resolutions.  YOU are a vital part of our
Association and we welcome your participation.

If you wish to join forces with your fellow co-workers, have access to the education you need to succeed
in your job at the USPS and be able to attend meetings, vote on issues, and have your voice heard, I invite you
to fill out the 1187 form in this publication and mail it to me at the address on the bottom of the application.  The
form authorizes automatic payment from your paycheck.  You are never billed for any pay period that you
don’t work. You don’t don’t pay, but your membership will continue uninterrupted. At this time
and only thru this December issue, ORRLCA is offering a special incentive when you join.  Any RCA or ARC
that signs up thru this publication will receive a $25 sign-up check and any Regular or PTF who signs up will
receive a $50 check.  Again, you have to mail your specially marked “DECEMBER” 1187 included in this paper
directly to me (ORRLCA Secretary/Treasurer).  We look forward to welcoming you as a member. If you have
any questions, don’t hesitate to call.


Oksana Tropets
ORRLCA Secretary-Treasurer
