New Video: FedEx Drivers Aren’t Pilots

And delivery trucks don’t need flight attendants to issue safety instructions. Here’s the latest
Teamsters video making that obvious point.

For years FedEx has been taking advantage of a loophole that allows it to classify truck drivers, sorters, loaders and unloaders as airline workers. Congress is poised to impose one set of rules for all package delivery companies.

The House passed the “Express Carrier Employee Protection Act” as part of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization bill. The Senate passed the bill as well. Now two senators from Tennessee – FedEx CEO Fred Smith’s home state – are blocking the bill’s further progress.
