    That is awesome news!!!! I think between Conway and Fedex, if they get organized, the union freight industry would be amazingly strong again

    Work rules, bids, contractual policy for earned time off, senority rights, access to grievance procedure,
    disciplinary hearings with representation, less out of pocket health care costs and a pension plan, and maybe even More Money!
    And a Voice in their workplace.

    One thing i think would happen if they would organize is that they would have a seperate contract. I just don't see any future companies that may organize getting into the NMFA thanks to the sweet deal given to UPSF by the Hoffa team. Just take a look now how everything is. UPSF's contract is up in 2013 I believe ABF in 2013 and YRC in 2015 all with different contracts supposedly, so I ask where is the strength, the power that the teamsters were once proud to have.
