    Default Organizing Rumors

    So lots of rumors floating around at FDXF lately about all kinds of stuff.

    Just heard one maybe nuno can verify it.
    Heard SBO (San Bernadino, CA) was working on the organization process.
    Any truth to this or just more random rumors.

    The Teamsters union has begun a campaign to organize workers at FedEx Freight, the less-than-truckload division of transport giant FedEx Corp., a move that will pit the venerable union against FedEx Chairman and CEO Frederick W. Smith, one of the most formidable anti-union executives in America.

    The announcement came July 1 at the union's annual convention in Las Vegas, and was made by Ken Hall, head of the Teamsters' small-parcel division. According to a transcript of Hall's comments, the organizing effort will begin in the West, and the union has three full-time organizers working to solicit interest among FedEx Freight employees. FedEx Freight, the nation's biggest less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier, employs about 30,000 people. It is unclear how many workers would be eligible to be organized.

    Teamster spokesman Galen Munroe confirmed today that the union has allocated resources to the effort. A resolution posted July 1 on the Teamster web site states that it "will assist our FedEx Freight brothers and sisters in organizing and achieving their goal of a union contract."

    Should be interesting to see what happens with this.
    This would be a perfect time for the teamsters to jump in with both feet and go for it. Considering all the rumors flying around. I believe we find out at the end of August or beginning of September how true the rumors are.

    Wonder what videos we will get to watch at the next meeting.

    @ A Duie Pyle once you get hired they require you watch an hr long video on how unions are bad for A Duie Pyle and this country. Just more brain washing from the executives!
