The article reports on the move of United Parcel Service of America Inc. (UPS) and its organized labor to lobby to Congress to make it easier for Federal Express Corp. (FedEx) workers to form unions in the U.S. FedEx is now trying to defeat the said legislation. However, the author admits that FedEx will find it hard to campaign against the legislation because of the strong influence of labor unions on the Democratic-led Congress.
