    Default What is the status of the FAA bill???

    I haven't heard anything in a while about the FAA bill that will allow Fed ex to unionize.. The last thing i heard was that if they remove that part of the bill that Obama would veto it.

    Close but not quite:
    FedEx Issue Stalls FAA Bill
    When the Senate OK'd an FAA funding bill back in March, it looked like the agency would finally see an end to a long series of short-term extensions dating back to 2007, but now the bill remains stalled due to a dispute over union rules. The House version of the bill includes a provision that would change the status of some FedEx workers who are now regulated under the Railway Labor Act, which also covers airlines. The House bill would place those workers instead under the National Labor Relations Act, the same rules that govern UPS workers. The Senate version of the bill doesn't include this provision, and the two sides have been unable to reconcile their differences, resulting in a delay in completing the bill so it can go to the White House.

    Fred has friends in Washington. Even the Republicans like his donations. If I'm not mistaken Fred Is a Republican but money talks. FedEx Package is a federal monument protected by the same Senate who we've been waiting to hear from on the EFCA and Orphan Pension bills
