Action Item: Tell Fed-Ex You're Fed Up

At an appropriate time of the year, here's an action item. Fed-Ex has been taking some extraordinary steps to prevent its drivers from unionizing. The drivers work long hours, frequently without benefits, and are routinely harassed -- even fired -- for just thinking about supporting a union.

I will personally refuse to ship anything with Fed-Ex, and will refuse to buy anything from any online merchant who ships exclusive through Fed-Ex.

I have also sent an email to the Fed-Ex CEO telling him that I'm fed up.

Please consider doing the same. We have to fight for fair employment and family-wage jobs whenever and wherever we can.
