The U.S. Postal Service will grant pay increases and bonuses to recruit and retain mail carriers in western North Dakota’s oil patch, where the region’s soaring population has led to overwhelmed workers, long lines at post offices and tardy or undelivered mail. Senator John Hoeven announced the agreement between the Postal Service and its union on Wednesday. The agreement calls for pay increases of up to 20 percent for rural carriers. Newly hired carriers also will receive hiring bonuses that total $1,000 after one year. Current carriers also get the same sum within a year.
