Two additional organizations have joined the movement against the privatization of USPS retail services since yesterday.
NH State Employees’ Association
“It’s clear the battle lines have been drawn in Corporate America’s plan to take over not just our politicians, but core governmental services,” wrote President Diana Lacey in an announcement of the boycott to members.
“And that’s why it’s also clear that more union brothers and sisters must step forward on that battlefield! I will gladly stand with our US Postal Workers in their effort to stop Staples, the office supply retailer, from taking over trusted public services to boost corporate profit margins at the expense of hard working taxpayers, and I ask you to as well.”
National Nurses United
The National Nurses United has also joined the Stop Staples movement and endorsed the boycott of the office-supply company. NNU, with a membership of almost 185,000 nurses, is the largest union and professional association of registered nurses in U.S. history.
