A week or so ago the local BA was at our driver PCM talking to the drivers about organizing FedEx Ground guys, he said some court decision had made it possible to organize Ground drivers who work for other people, the ones who don’t own their own route. This really didn’t make sense to me, first unions derive their power through numbers, and organizing a few drivers against the route owner does not seem to carry much weight, he could fire the 2-3 drivers he has and hire 2-3 more that aren’t union. What would the union do to stop that? A national strike wouldn’t really work for saving a few guys jobs. Second I don’t think the route owners could afford paying drivers “the big union bucks” so to speak, like what UPS driver make. Has anyone else heard anything about this?
