ARTICLE I
Name
The name of this Association shall be the NATIONAL
RURAL LETTER CARRIERS’ ASSOCIATION (NRLCA).
ARTICLE II
Purpose
The Association is established upon the long-recognized
need of Rural Letter Carriers to organize and create a united
force, advance the interests of all members, ensure job security, enhance opportunities and assure our full share in the
success of the United States Postal Service to which we contribute so substantially.
The Association shall seek, with all of the resources at its
command, to assist its members in the realization of their highest aspirations as workers and as citizens. Such aspirations
are our right and shall be protected against all threats, In
God We Trust.
The Association is dedicated to the discharge of its responsibilities and the achievement of its objectives in accordance
with the democratic principles embodied in this Constitution.
The object of the Association shall be to improve conditions
of labor with the United States Postal Service, advance the
methods used by Rural Letter Carriers and promote fraternal
spirit among its members.
This Association shall not affiliate or merge with any other
organization or group without a majority vote of the delegates at a National Convention.

following rural carriers:
1. Regular Carriers (Designation Code 71), including

Injured-on-Duty/Leave Without Pay (IOD/LWOP) status and assigned to (980-989) rural routes;
2. Part-Time Flexible Rural Carriers (PTFs, Designation

7
lapsed, due to extenuating circumstances, may apply for
reinstatement to the National Secretary-Treasurer by
providing proof of prior membership and the current year’s
dues. The National Secretary-Treasurer shall present the
request for membership to the National Board for a
decision. Retired Members in good standing are entitled to
all voting rights with the exception of ratification of
National Agreements. Retired Members may not be

members, may not be candidates for office or serve as officers.

the Association. Additionally, prospective members may
make application by remitting in advance the appropriate
annual cash payment.
