    Hello,
    I am new to this forum and I was wondering if anyone else has noticed this. I just got something from the teamsters delivered to my house. They shipped it to me using Fed-EX !!!!

    That is a lie! Fed ex is not allowed in any teamster buildings here at all! Fedex deliveries get refused and not a chance will they ship anything to you other than usps, dhl, and ups. What did you get in the package? Was it sent from another compnay as a third party for the teamsters? Ifso you need to notify your local immediately!

    If I got something from the teamsters via fedex I'd accept it. Photo the package and plaster it all over the internet!!! What a disgrace.

    Whats the difference all the news letters and all that jazz and Union propoganda and even UPS propoganda i get, i get from the USPS. Personally i dont bleed the union or company's colors yet so im not really affected.

    Red........................ I understand what you're saying but I disagree with that stance. Wouldn't it be better to have a form letter printed and ready to hand them? The letter would list the pay scale for UPS and other Teamster drivers. That would give the FedEx guy something to read and hand to his co-workers. Also include contact information for the FedEx guy to call your BA. Think of it as a Sales Lead!

    Just a thought.

    I am sorry but it is not a lie.
    It was the health insurance information.
    It came from my local.
    I did not refuse it because it was left at my door.

    Maybe it's because the Teamsters are heavily courting Fedex drivers and workers to join the union.
