Title: Don’t Steal our Postal Services Rally!

Downtown Berkeley Staples Store. Durant & Shattuck, Berkeley, CA
Event Type: Protest

Don’t  Steal our Postal Services Rally

In front of the Staples store

2352 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley

The Berkeley Post Office and post offices all over the US are under threat of being fraudulently sold!

In a new attack, US postal services have been snuck into 84 Staples stores all over the country - including Berkeley.  Postal services are being provided by low-wage Staples employees, not living-wage Postal professionals.

Please join us to:

  • Oppose privatization of the US Postal Services and all public resources. Privatization brings higher prices and worse quality.
  • Oppose union busting - replacing union jobs with low paying jobs that offer poor or no benefits.  
Non-union pay lowers everyone’s standard of living (USPS compensation $20-$30/hr + benefits. Staples $8 - $12/hr, few if any benefits)

 Sponsored by Berkeley Post Office Defenders.  Supported by Strike Debt Bay Area.
