KIM Region 6 Report

Kentucky -- Indiana -- Michigan

                    NATIONAL BUSINESS AGENT'S Report    December 2017



Brothers & Sisters,

      The year we leave behind has strengthened us in many ways. Letter carriers are the messengers for this nation who perform a great service for our country even beyond delivering the mail. We are committed to providing the world's best mail service and I am honored to be able to represent all members in our region. Your hard work and dedication to the NALC continues to be an inspiration to me as your National Business Agent, and as I have often said, no one can do it alone.

      Reflecting on 2017, the KIM Region has been very successful because of our work for and with each other. We have seen a year of growth in the Postal Service and that is a good sign for our Union. Under the leadership of President Rolando, we have negotiated a new Collective Bargaining Agreement that serves both career and non-career letter carriers very well. Great gains have been achieved and they are all well deserved.

      This past year has seen a political division in the country and confusion in

the White House. That division, however, cannot exist in how we deal with each

other as Union brothers and sisters. It has never been easy dealing with postal management, but now we will have to escalate our efforts in the legislative arena. Together we will be able to overcome those hurdles because of how we, and our predecessors, have been able to develop our region into the most progressive and cohesive region in the country We will continue to do what is right for our members, our customers and the NALC.


     2018 will bring the National Convention to our region-Detroit here we come!!


      On behalf of your Regional Administrative Assistants, Troy Clark and David Mudd, I wish your branch members and their families a joyous, safe and

prosperous holiday season. May the spirit and tradition of the holidays transcend a commitment to each other in the NALC. May that same spirit and tradition touch each of us and may we come to know a peace and concern for each other as brothers and sisters in our great Union. Take care of each other.


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!



In Unionism,

Patrick C. Carroll
