http://labornotes.org/2011/07/fedex-package-handlers-vote-teamsters I know Brockton, it is horrible conditions in Summer and Winter. I hope they succeed. Northern California express stations are now putting flyers on the walls instructing couriers how to respond or react when or if approached by a "solicitor". In the past Solicitor always translated into Union. I have never been gung-ho about Unions but knowing what I know now about FedEx, I say that things could not get worse, let's give it a try. If FedEx could have it's way (Express and Ground) we would all be making 10.50 an hour with no benefits and no barbeques.
