Either that or they could plan on using Emirates Freight to break a strike.

The company makes money by getting people to pay to move rubber dog crap from point a to point b. Ultimately how or who moves said dog crap is irrelevant to them making money.

I figured this would get a lot more discussion considering our Union is very much against this.

So did I. I took it as another slap in the face.

If I was king at the big three, and read that FedEx was working against me, the airfare agreements contract with FDX would not be renewed.

Whoa, very good point. Wouldn't that be something.

I wonder why FedEx Corp. thinks they are immune to a state subsidized foreign carrier coming into the USA and moving freight?

Didn't we already have that with DHL? How did that work out?

Probably because although a foreign carrier might bring in freight, they'd have no way of dispersing the stuff. They don't have the Infrastructure for pick up and delivery. Thankfully.
