NALC and the Postal Service have settled national-level case Q16N-4Q-C 20345187 concerning the Postal Service’s implementation of a test of the delivery initiative entitled Expedited Street/Afternoon Sortation (ESAS). As a result of the settlement, the parties agree that the ESAS pilot test is concluded and terminated as of August 19, 2020.
