Teamsters Organize FedEx Ground Stations

December 5, 2005: In an historic win, our union has organized two FedEx Ground stations near Boston. Workers voted 22-8 for Teamster Local 25 at the two small stations.


Instead of recognizing the union and bargaining, FedEx intends to challenge the union victory at the NLRB and court, to drag it out. FedEx Ground drivers are contractors who buy their own trucks, but the NLRB has ruled that they are employees.


The union has lost most earlier organizing attempts at FedEx, so this victory could mark a positive trend. Organizing FedEx Ground (along with FedEx Freight and FedEx Express) is a long-term priority for Teamster strength. Local wins like this one can help spark a movement, but it will take a major commitment by the International Union to finish the job.
