The Purple promise is broken.
Open to Unionization
By Bartholomew Sullivan, Memphis Commercial Appeal
WASHINGTON -- The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee made it easier for unions like the International Brotherhood of Teamsters to organize FedEx employees.
By changing the jurisdiction of how some employees can be organized -- from national to local bargaining units -- the FAA Re-authorization Act that now goes to the House floor takes away provisions that made it difficult for FedEx drivers to join local unions.
The same language passed the House in 2007 but was never taken up by the Senate. Some industry observers say the provision stands a better chance of surviving with Democrats in control of Congress and the White House.
