With all due respect, the problem is that the RLA does apply to Fedex Ground, due to an amendment that FDX was able to insert into legislation several years ago, thanks to Sen. Trent Lott.
The "Fedex Express language" was designed to ensure workers who work in the FDX ground business were afforded the right to be governed by the correct (and less restrictive) set of labor laws (NLRA). As of today, if a set of FDX ground drivers want to organize locally, similar to any other ground driver at any other company, they can't due to the fact they are technically governed by RLA.
