UPS has spent significant effort trying to put the Federal screws to FedEx in the past.[1]

While UPS's motivation is obvious, their argument is valid. There is no good reason for FedEx Express drivers to not be covered by the NLRA.

I remember sometime in 2009 the managers at UPS gave some talk about FedEx misclassifying their employees and it was unfair, and they encouraged us to write some letter or sign some petition (I don't remember the exact details). While it was likely true, it seemed shady to me to get employees/union members involved in a business spat.
