Interesting - Does anyone know how FedEx can challenge a union vote? Some FedEx workers in Mass. vote down unionizing Mon Mar 26, 2007 9:36am ET BOSTON, March 26 (Reuters) - Workers at a FedEx Corp. facility in Northborough, Massachusetts, voted down a proposal to be represented by the Teamsters union, a National Labor Relations Board official said on Monday. The vote comes at a time when the union is making a push to represent the package-delivery company's 15,000 North American truckers, none of whom have collective representation. Robert Redbord, deputy regional attorney at the NLRB in Boston, said the workers at the facility voted 29 to 14 on Thursday against seeking unionization. "Our employees took a close look at the union's record, thought it through before making a commitment to this kind of group, and decided to deal directly with the company, which has a long history of being one of the nation's best places to work," said FedEx spokesman Maury Lane. A Teamsters representative said the union would continue to seek to represent FedEx workers at other locations in Massachusetts and around the United States. "Although we're disappointed, it's a small, small entity, a small warehouse," said Mike Hogan, secretary-treasurer for Teamsters Local 170. In November, drivers at two other Massachusetts FedEx locations, in Wilmington, voted to seek representation by the Teamsters. FedEx is challenging that vote. If the drivers at those facilities succeed in getting their union recognized, they will be the first of FedEx's truckers to have union representation. The Teamsters also represents about 220,000 employees of FedEx rival United Parcel Service Inc..
