    Default Teamsters take a stand for fair pay, organizing workers

    This isn't just about Fedex but this is a big deal so it is going here.
    From Baltimore to Seattle, Teamsters stood outside more than 300 FedEx Freight terminals educating workers about the company's spending of $5.2 million over the past three years to cover the personal taxes of top executives as well hundreds of thousands of dollars to wage anti-worker campaigns. Meanwhile, workers there continue to have access to poor and expensive health benefits.

    Teamster organizers said enough is enough:

    FedEx Freight workers across the country have been building their power with the Teamsters' help for many months. Workers have committed to fighting for the long-haul to attain their true goal of a collective bargaining agreement with their employer. FedEx Freight workers want a voice and they want it in writing. Workers are overcoming their fear and the companies constant assault on organized labor.

    This workforce has built a very large core of committed individuals and continue to grow their pro-contract, pro-union, pro-Teamster ranks daily. They all understand that this is a marathon and not a sprint and are working diligently with their goal of memorializing their working lives in a written agreement with FedEx Freight!

    It was great to see them in CLT. I want to thank all the Temsters who took their time to support us in this campaign and came out to all of the terminals. Nice to see some of our anti union drivers walking around all poochy lipped because they said is was over. Not over by a long shot the Teamsters and those of us fighting for better aren't going anywhere!

    Funny how FedEx makes passing along information seem like a great deterrent for production? They pissed away more time with their anti union crap many times over. Spin, twist, and outright lie Freddy. You're goons are the best organizers we have.

    12 hours and counting. That is the current total for time spent trying to talk to me about how we don't need the union. Keep wasting time and money FedEx cause I ain't changing my mid.
