My point is this: The leverage of the FedEx pilots union is not equal to Delta's pilots union's leverage. The union pilots at Delta could walk and Delta Airlines would become another Eastern. This won't happen at FedEx. If Push comes to Shove on the unions part, expect FedEx Corporation to repeat itself. FedEx Corporation said 7 years ago, "We will do it with you or without you". The resultant pilot contract was the companies previous best offer minus the costs associated with the contingentcy setup for that 2nd option. (costs were 25 Mil $ /correct me if I am off on this)

Several of my pilot friends at FedEx have said privately that they would have accepted the companies offer early this year.
