    I think this is the same bill that would make it even harder to organize Fed Ex.

    Rep. Steven LaTourette (R-Ohio) will sponsor an amendment to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization bill that, if passed, would strike back at his party’s efforts to limit union organizing at airline and railway companies.

    So.... what's the status on this bill? Did he veto, did they tie it up in committee or did it get lost during the budget fiasco?

    It probably got lost. Like so many of the other labor freindly issues.

    I have given up on our president to do anything to help unions. The very people that helped get him elected are the ones he is leaving behind now. I am completely digusted with the whole situation. No one is looking out for the working man anymore.
