FedEx Workers Resist Threats, Pledge to Join Teamsters - PoliticalAffairs.net Management has been harassing pro-union employees, Los Angeles area FedEx workers told a blue ribbon commission panel this week. The workers testified about their desire to join the Teamsters Union in order to boost their standard of living and protect health and other benefits. "Without a union, FedEx mechanics have no job security," said Jon Zerolnick, an analyst for the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy. "Currently their jobs can be outsourced and hours cut – and lives are seriously impacted – at the whim of management. They need a union to protect jobs."
