    Default Fed Ex, Con-way battling inroads by Teamsters union

    FedEx Freight and Con-way Freight, two of the largest non-union LTL carriers in the nation, are battling organizing efforts by the Teamsters union in a closely watched unionization effort.
    Hoffa claimed “thousands” of freight workers at FedEx Freight and Con-way are turning to the Teamsters Union, which may be a bit of an exaggeration considering the relatively small size of the Philadelphia unit.

    But any victory for the Teamsters has ramifications. The union has lost in excess of 500,000 jobs in its freight division since the Motor Carrier Act of 1980 economically deregulated the trucking industry. The Teamsters have 1.4 million members. Its largest unit is UPS, with more than 260,000 Teamsters at that company.

    Teamsters’ campaigns have already paid off. At FedEx Freight, the company announced an 80-cent-per-hour raise a few days after Local 107 filed for the election at Cinnaminson. The Teamsters claim the company got rid of its overly punitive driver scorecard, which gives drivers infraction points for errors.
    Of course!
