I encourage all my readers to read the paragraph below, click the link, and sign the petition to protect what will become of this challenge to the way our country and our world transports the goods we rely on day to day.

Join the Wall Street Journal in its stand, along with others, against what is being called “… Political favoritism at its worst, benefiting only UPS and Teamsters while raising transportation costs across the economy“.

“Congress is considering a Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization bill, one version of which includes a UPS-backed provision that would make FedEx Express subject to labor regulations that govern trucking companies instead of regulations that apply to airlines. That change would make it easier for unions to organize certain groups of FedEx Express employees. In an April 26 editorial, the Wall Street Journal strongly criticized the proposed regulatory shift, writing: “If you can’t beat ’em, have Congress hobble ’em. That’s the motto of some in corporate America, and Exhibit A might be United Parcel Service’s campaign to get Washington to impose its labor woes on rival Federal Express. This would be one more union bailout at the expense of business competition and economic efficiency.'” – FedEx Knowledge Network
