Tell Staples: The U.S. Mail is not for SALE

U.S. Mail Is Not For Sale!

List [PDF] of National Day of Action protest locations

Staples attacks good jobs and public post offices.

Staples and the U.S. Postal Service have cut a deal that jeopardizes your mail service and your local post office. In fact, post offices across the country are at risk – along with thousands of good jobs.

The Staples deal 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.

A bad deal for workers and consumers.

You have a right to post offices staffed by workers who are accountable to you and the American people. You have a right to postal services provided by highly trained, uniformed Postal Service employees, who are sworn to safeguard your mail – whether it’s at the Post Office or Staples.

The Staples deal is bad for consumers like you who will pay the same for less service. And if Staples and the USPS move forward with this deal, it could lead to the end of the Postal Service as we know it.

Undermining good jobs.

In the meantime, the Staples deal is replacing good-paying jobs that our community depends on with low-wage jobs that hurt our economy.


Tell Staples:
The U.S. Mail is Not for Sale!

Don’t let Staples destroy your Post Office. Share this petition before it's too late.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

A study by the Centers for Disease Control indicates that sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence are widespread in the United States among both women and men.

Did You Know?

  • 1.3 million women were raped during the year preceding the survey.
  • Nearly 1 in 5 women have been raped in their lifetime while 1 in 71 men have been raped in their lifetime.
  • More than half (51.1%) of female victims of rape reported being raped by an intimate partner and 40.8% by an acquaintance; for male victims, more than half (52.4%) reported being raped by an acquaintance and 15.1% by a stranger.

At CLUW's Women's Leadership Skills Training Conference held last week (March 27-29) in Chicago one of the workshops conducted by representatives from Futures Without Violence was: "When Members Experience Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Stalking: The Role of the Union".

One of their partner projects is Workplaces Respond to Domestic and Sexual Violence
We invite you to visit their website which provides several important resources to help you Create a Policy within your workplace and a Toolkit which includes a short video presentation.
