FedEx has some nerve coming out against the Employee Free Choice Act [EFCA]. Never in my life time have I seen such a concerted effort by corporations to block Unions. What does this tell us? It simply means that big business does not want to pay workers fair wages; and it also says that they presently like their corporate structure where the CEO's and management at the top want to keep their inflated, bloated compensation and bonuses and stock options, while the people who truly make these businesses prosper receive an unfair wage.
If you'd like to voice your opinion about what FedEx is doing (threatening to cancel Boeing jet orders [what amounts to legal extortion] if EFCA is enacted) call FedEx CEO, President and Chairman Frederick W. Smith and tell him you're going to take your business elsewhere if he keeps opposing the Employee Free Choice Act. FedEx is a bully and that kind of business and those kinds of tactics are deplorable.
I PUBLISHED THIS POST THIS MORNING, BUT I GOT TO THINKING; THIS IS A GOVERNMENT "OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE ...."; SINCE WHEN DID THIS BECOME A GOVERNMENT OF THE CORPORATIONS!?
This is Mr. Smith's corporate phone number to voice your disgust with FedEx threatening Boeing. Tell them that their interference in a legal process is evidence that they are a deplorable and an unethical company and you will take your business elsewhere:
