We are having problems with carriers being told to take their DPS to the street in order to make
their schedule leaving times. In Kentucky and Indiana have them contact Randy Burger or myself and in Ohio, Mike or myself.

You may do this on email. Please get your requests in as soon as possible so he can assign the stewards to the meetings.
RAFT (Recruit A Friend Today)
National Recruitment Initiative
Recruitment Period: December 1, 2013 -June 30, 2014
The National Board has endorsed and adopted a national recruitment initiative called RAFT (Recruit A Friend Today). This special initiative commenced December 1, 2013, and will run through the end of the Association year June 30, 2014.
As an incentive for recruiters and new members, the RAFT Program offers the following benefits:
Individual recruiters will receive an incentive payment of $25.00 for each Relief Carrier recruited and $50.00 for each Regular/PTF Carrier recruited. The only stipulation to receive this payment is that the recruited individual must sign an 1187 Dues Withholding Authorization form and stay on the USPS employment roles for a period of 3 months after the State Secretary or National Office processes the Form 1187.
The newly recruited member will receive 3 free months of membership before his/her Form 1187 is sent to the USPS for processing.
An article explaining this initiative will be printed in the December 2013 edition of The National Rural Letter Carriers' magazine.
One thing to remember is that there are still looming decisions to be made by Congress that affect the future of our jobs, our families' financial stability and our employer, the United States Postal Service. Because there are many tough decisions to be made by others that hold our future in their hands, it is more important than ever that we stand together in solidarity with as much information as possible in front of us.
The contract books are now available. The cost is $2.00 each + $1.00 for postage. Call Donna Cissell at 502-921-0079 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to order your book. Leave a message & how many books you wish to receive. Your order will be shipped to you with a return envelope to be used for your payment. Make checks payable to KYRLCA for the books. Please remember these were ordered for our members as a benefit of membership.
