CUB members stood with postal workers on Sunday, June 22nd at a "Stop Staples!" rally. Community members gathered in front of the Staples store at Eastpoint Mall on Eastern Avenue in Baltimore Sunday afternoon to tell the retail store to stop attacking good jobs and public post offices.
The City Union of Baltimore joins in telling Staples: THE U.S. MAIL IS NOT FOR SALE!
The recent Staples deal with the USPS will replace full-service U.S. Post Offices with knock-off post offices in Staples stores that are not staffed with U.S. Postal Service employees. We have a right to post offices staffed by workers who are accountable to the American people, who are highly trained, and who are sworn to safeguard the mail. If Staples and the USPS move forward with this deal, it could mean the end of the Postal Service as we know it.
In the meantime, the Staples deal will replace good-paying jobs that our community depends on with low-wage retail jobs that hurt our economy.
Tell Staples: THE U.S. MAIL IS NOT FOR SALE!
