The court is weighing suits filed by 150 independent contract drivers who say they are treated as full-time employees and should be paid as such. Limiting the FedEx ground-delivery unit's use of contractors may wreck its chances of gaining on larger rival UPS. The unit helped FedEx take as much as 19 percent of the ground-delivery market, while UPS has fallen from 82 percent to 70 percent in the past decade.

My uncle at usf reddaway said the new teamsters contract will allow part time workers to become full time workers, with a top pay of $ 22.18 an hour, one other thing at Fedex looking at the old time dock workers they have fringe benefits, and especially Fedex wanna be supervisor also have fringe benefits, who could care less about part time workers, also I am considering in joining those workers at FedEx who display the "union yes" sign on their car out side the parking lot, hopefully I will meet one of you guys and obtain a sign for my car.
