10/26/2015 - Members of the California Alliance of Retired Americans (CARA) joined the Stop Staples campaign for a rally and picket in front of an Upland, CA, location on Tuesday, Oct. 20. 

The event was held in conjunction with CARA’s biennial conference, which took place in Ontario, CA. Dozens of participants were bussed to picket the Staples store that afternoon. Members of the California State APWU were also on hand.

“Staples plans on expanding postal services nationwide to all of their stores in the near future. We need to let them know and the communities they are in that this not acceptable,” said Michael Evans, president of the California State APWU.
