The U.S. Postal Service, like any business should, continues to try to find ways to stay competitive faced with a changing landscape and financial losses. Predictably, though, those protecting what they see as their own self-interest continue to try to thwart such innovation.


The latest volley comes as the Postal Service has launched a partnership with dozens of Staples office-supply stores throughout the country, in which Staples employees do such routine things as sell postage and mail packages — things the postal union considers to be union-only jobs. …


Whenever the Postal Service tries to make a change to stem its losses, which totaled $5 billion during the past year, many understandably worry that consumers will be harmed if postal services are cut. A shared-resources deal such as the one with Staples is a proven way to continue serving Americans while keeping costs in check.


Continuing to lose billions of dollars a year simply isn’t a viable strategy, and postal workers are more likely to see everyone suffer and lose jobs if they resist such reasonable attempts by the postal service to manage its business.
