AP's Hananel Weakly Covers Union's Threats Against USPS-Staples Retail Partnership | NewsBusters: "What if Staples buckled, and allowed postal workers union members to staff the stores? They would have nothing to do for most of their shifts.
The Staples employees responsible for the USPS counters aren't standing there all day long waiting for customers to walk in. I haven't been in one of the pilot stores, so I can't know for sure, but my guess is that Copy Center employees who already have UPS shipping duties will be responsible for the USPS counters. Such employees currently spend no more than 90 minutes during a typical 8-hour shift handling UPS customers, and might eventually spend a similar amount of time with those who wish to use USPS. The more effective Staples employees will also make sure that customers are aware of potential other products and services they may wish to purchase while they're in the store."
