    Business girds for push by unions on Obama win - Reuters

    Corporate America is bracing for a bold offensive from labor early in 2009, led off most likely by a renewed push in Congress to pass legislation, fiercely opposed by business, that would make it easier to organize unions in the workplace.

    One high-profile target of the Teamsters union under the "card check" bill would likely be organizing contractors at FedEx Ground, a unit of package delivery giant FedEx Corp. Teamsters representatives declined to comment.

    Unlike its main rival United Parcel Service Inc, whose workers are represented by the Teamsters, FedEx has long resisted attempts to unionize its hourly workers.
