04/17/2014 - APWU President Mark Dimondstein told viewers of the Ed Show on MSNBC last night that the Postal Service’s internal “smoking gun” document [PDF] shows that the deal with Staples was hatched to lower wages.  And postal customers who patronize Staples will be served by employees who are not fully trained and not accountable to the people, he pointed out. “We can’t have vibrant, public postal services if decisions about where and if people get service” are based on whether people and businesses like Staples “can make a quick buck,” he said.
