Congratulations to all of the dedicated and hardworking Stop Staples activists and supporters who kept up the pressure in the fight on USPS and Staples to end their privatization agenda of the United States Postal Service.

A big thanks to APWU President Dimondstein for his vision, leadership and commitment in this fight. Of course, the fight will go on as USPS will surely appeal this ruling – but we are winning!

    Congratulations APWU!
    I remember doing this in the 80’s when Sears thought they wanted to get into the Postal retail business. We beat them down quickly.

    Many questioned APWU President Mark Dimondstein’s commitment to fighting to save our Post Office Window Clerk positions with his ‘Stop Staples’ campaign. I think this was in large part because it was a such a radical move perhaps not seen by the APWU since the 1970 Strike previous APWU administrations would not have undertaken. Many saw it as a wasted effort fighting big money for-profit corporate privatization that was doomed to failure.

    With this decision we can clearly see those detractors were wrong and our Window Clerks are more secure today because of President Dimondstein’s leadership in making this stand and all those who supported his Stop Staples efforts by demanding the USPS bargain in good faith and GIVE OUR JOBS BACK!

    Imagine what we could have done and the message we would have sent if the majority, rather than a small minority of our Membership had participated in the Stop Staples campaign. Let that be a lesson to us all the next time we are asked to take a stand for our jobs.
