I took Snackdad's advice and Googled "versus FedEx", and as he said, there are literally hundreds of cases readily available for perusal. I just picked a few at random and the main thing that is very obvious is that in each and every case FedEx simply overwhelms the legal system to the greatest extent possible. One case in particular stood out, which was that of a motorcyclist suing FedEx for a courier basically running him over. In short, FedEx was obviously at fault. The attorney who runs the site has a picture showing 14 lawyers and assistants at the front of the courtroom. According to this same attorney, there are at least 6 other FedEx legal personnel that he couldn't fit in to the picture. This is what you are up against when you sue FedEx, and these people are very good at killing cases. Think it was expensive to fly, feed, and house at least 20 people for 1 case in Texas that they will probably lose? Consider the amount of people they're willing to throw at a case they have a reasonable chance of winning. The Teamsters say that they won't try to organize Express stations because not enough employees will sign cards. Every employee who has at least a room temperature IQ knows that they can be fired at any time for any reason under the "at-will" clause at FedEx. If you do get canned and try to go the legal route, how many attorneys are going to want to go up against the FedEx "Legal Machine", especially if they're a small firm? Not many. Until the Teamsters can offer full legal support to FedEx employees, a lot of them are going to be afraid to sign cards because they absolutely, positively know that they will be targeted for termination. It's very easy for management to set-up amost anyone for termination because the bar is set so low with the "at-will" provision. I know of someone who was recently fired on the spot for not having the proper uniform on. This was a one-time incident, and the courier had no prior problems with being in uniform. From what I've heard, he simply forgot to dry his clothes, had nothing to wear, but decided to show-up for work because it was the "right thing to do". Gone. Get a clue, Mr Hoffa and the Teamsters. You need to step it up with your legal team and be willing to go to bat for employees who get fired for exercising their completely legal right to organize their workplace. Once there is some legal protection, there will be many more willing to sign union cards on the spot.
