Staples Fight is Over! A message from President Dimondstein
Posted On: Jan 09, 2017

The Staples boycott is over!

Postal management informed the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) in writing that the “Approved Shipper” program in Staples stores will be shut down by the end of next month, concluding our three-year struggle.

I salute and commend you along with every other member and supporter who made this victory possible. I never doubted that if we stayed the course, stuck together and kept the activist pressure on, we would win this fight.

This is a victory for all the people of this country who have the right to good quality, secure, and public postal services. It also helps stop the transfer of good living-wage union jobs to low-wage jobs and thwarts postal privatization efforts.

I also applaud the many local and state organizations that joined in the fight; allies who honored the Staples boycott; our retiree and auxiliary chapters who stepped up with enthusiasm; APWU National officers and staff who stayed the course; and especially the many Stop Staples activists, active and retired, career and non-career, who worked day-in and day-out to see this struggle through and were the heart and soul of the campaign.

A job well-done!

In Solidarity,

Mark Dimondstein, APWU President
