Stop the Latest Postal Scheme
The U.S. Postal Service is trying to outsource mail service by putting “postal units” inside Staples stores. The problem is, it won’t be public-sector postal workers in these “postal units.” It will be low-wage Staples staff. This privatization scheme is another attack on public employees and on solid, middle-class jobs. What you can do: Join postal workers in their “day of action” on Thursday April 24. The Twin Cities event is from 4-6 p.m. outside the Staples store in Har-Mar Mall, 2100 Snelling Road N, Roseville. (Map)

(Read the details) AFSCME members led the way in fighting to make work pay. Combined with the efforts of our allies in the labor, faith and nonprofit communities, it means 357,000 hard-working Minnesotans will get a pay raise they need to improve their ability to support themselves and their families.
