    I work for FedEx and even I know there was no protest to “create the union”. The UPS founder invited the Teamsters in.

    Jim Casey was a smart man. He knew if he wanted a reliable work force he needed union employes.

    I'm sorry, you really need to do a quick google search. Straighten out your utter lack of understanding of the history of the union and ups, then come back with halfway informed questions.

    At least this guy is trying to gain knowledge. Just don't think he should expect anyone one here to spell it out for him, especially when he can get better info more easily through a simple web search.
