A group of unions in the US are calling for a boycott of this company for cutting a deal with the US Postal Service to offer postal services at Staples stores. A no-bid deal between Staples and the Postal Service set up postal counters inside 82 of the office-supply stores in four test markets staffed with untrained, low-wage Staples employees. Days after the 1.6 million member American Federation of Teachers said it would join the boycott, Staples and the USPS announced the pilot program would be discontinued. The 82 Staples outlets offering postal services will shift to the more established Post Office Approved Shipper program already available in thousands of retail outlets across the country. The union intends to keep up the pressure until Staples gets out of the mail business altogether.
