FedEx Corp has said that they will cancel an order for 30 Boeing Cargo Jets if Congress was to pass a law making it easier for unions to be put into place at the company. The Boeing Planes have a estimated cost of 7 Billion dollars.
The Teamsters Union is in place at the rival company, UPS, and has been trying to organize at FedEx Corp for many years. FedEx has a huge advantage over competitor UPS without a union, and the passing of this law would take that advantage away.
FedEx spokesperson Maury Lane said they will not purchase the planes if Congress were to change the law, stating the passing of the law would "cripple the company and eliminate the need for the extra planes".
