FedEx drivers in Charlotte vote for decertification from union
City and road drivers at the FedEx Freight service centre in Charlotte, North Carolina voted on Friday (7 July) to decertify the Teamsters union as their bargaining representative. FedEx Freight has issued a statement saying that was “pleased” because the company believes its “thriving, competitive work environment provides a more flexible, team-oriented, and customer-focused work model than the union can offer”.
The FedEx statement added: “Similarly, after voting in favor of union representation in 2014, city and road drivers at the FedEx Freight service center in Croydon, Pennsylvania have recently filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) seeking to decertify the Teamsters union as their bargaining representative. A decertification election date has been set for July 19.”
