What is NALC?
The National Association of Letter Carriers is the sole representative of city delivery letter carriers employed by the U.S. Postal Service. Since it was founded in Milwaukee in 1889, the NALC has had a long and distinguished history of defending the rights of letter carriers by protecting workers’ rights, establishing better work schedules, and being the voice to improve the lives of all letter carriers in America. NALC is the only force that fights to protect the interests of city letter carriers and is the sole representative of city delivery letter carriers employed by the US Postal Service.
NALC was looking for a mobile app for their members and letter carriers. They needed a common place where members and letter carriers could receive relevant government affairs information and a customized work calendar across the mobile platform. The calendar feature for letter carriers automated their fixed and rotational non-standard day off schedule, which up until now, has been paper based or memorized. They sought a streamlined government affairs information advocacy platform that needed the capability of reaching out and organizing segmented audiences all over the country. There was a lack of an automated work and holiday calendar, and a need for a connected method of reaching their country-wide audience.
