    FedEx, UPS clash over bill on FedEx labor rules - Reuters

    Package delivery rivals FedEx Corp (FDX.N) and United Parcel Service (UPS.N) faced off for the first time over a bill pending in Congress that would change FedEx workers' labor laws, setting out their positions in a debate on Tuesday in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

    In question is a reauthorization bill for the Federal Aviation Administration passed in May by the U.S. House of Representatives, under which FedEx employees would be covered by the National Labor Relations Act instead of the Railway Labor Act. The bill is awaiting Senate approval.
