CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Postal workers were in uptown Thursday morning protesting a strategy to help the struggling post office cut costs.
 
They're upset postal counters are opening in Staples stores and staffed with Staples employees.
 
They say it replaces well-paid union workers with low-wage non-union workers.
 
They're concerned it could lead to layoffs and the closing of post offices.

The protest in uptown is one of several across the country Thursday.
