American Postal Union objects to Staples, Office Depot merger

The American Postal Workers union announced it would form a team of financial advisors, lawyers and economists to fight the merger between Staples and Office Depot. With assistance from the AFL-CIO, the union is urging the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission to block the merger because they see it as "monopolistic" and "unlawful," leading to fewer choices and higher prices for consumers.
