SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — The U.S. Postal Service has launched a pilot partnership with Staples that some postal workers believe could be a step towards privatization.
Protesters in San Francisco held signs outside the Staples store on Van Ness Ave. that read, “Stop Staples. The U.S. Mail is not for Sale”READ MORE: Bay Area Shoppers Looking For Deals Find Black Friday Is Not What It Used To Be
Omar Gonzalez with the American Postal Workers Union said they are upset about the partnership— that extends beyond just selling stamps.
“To have an actual post office inside a store that’s actually serviced by people who are not sworn servants to the American public; that’s what we’re against,” he said.
