Washington, DC – The U.S. Postal Serice is ending post office services at Staples stores by March. The American Postal Workers Union protested the program for years as about 500 Staples stores did postal work that post office employees used to provide.
The APWU said the Postal Service was trying to privatize the work using workers with much lower pay and worse benefits.
APWU Presdient Mark Dimondstein says the union stood up against a wrong and won.
