 The American Postal Workers Union is organizing a protest at the Berkeley Staples store against the installation of Post Office stations inside Staples stores, staffed by low-wage non-union, no-benefit Staples workers instead of unionized Postal Service employees.

Berkeley Post Office Defenders, organized to defend against the sale of the downtown Berkeley Post Office and call attention to the evils of privatization in general, supports the APWU in its efforts to stop the privatization of the US Post Office and preserve living-wage union jobs.

Read about our own, first-in-the-nation, protest at Staples back in December, 2013.
