• Postal workers protest over fear of layoffs

    Updated:

    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.
