    FedEx Looks to Deliver -- to Senators - The Street

    An edgy FedEx media campaign, opposing a change in the company's labor classification, may outrage some people and amuse others, but the truth is it barely matters what the public thinks.

    The campaign is aimed at the 100 members of the U.S. Senate, who are about to consider legislation that would alter the classification, potentially making it easier for unions to organize.

    In last-minute maneuvering in 1996, the Senate agreed, despite fierce opposition, to codify FedEx's designation as a Railway Labor Act company, which makes labor organizing more difficult. Now FedEx again needs the Senate's help.
