Why Do We Need a Union at FedEx ?
The provisions of state law consider most workers "employees at will." This means that except under very special circumstances, FedEx can discharge us with or without a reason and at any time. FedEx can also set wage rates, benefit levels and work rules without our input or involvement. In other words, FedEx can do or change just about anything it wants, whenever it chooses. When we form a union, FedEx is then obligated under federal law to negotiate wages, hours and conditions of employment with representatives that we the union members designate.
