Staples Plucks Postal Jobs

Alexandra Bradbury Labor Notes
Across the country, local delegations visited Staples stores in January to threaten a boycott unless the retailer's new "postal units" are staffed by actual postal employees.The APWU is in support of making postal services available in more places and for longer hours, as long as they are staffed by postal union members.
