caf9/1247865716-acu_fulllogo.gif“The American Conservative Union asked FedEx for a check for $2 million to $3 million in return for the group’s support in a bitter legislative dispute, then the group’s chairman flipped and sided with UPS after FedEx refused to pay.” .So goes one of those “stranger than fiction” accounts — this one from the Politico.com website. It concerns a congressional mano-a-mano between FedEx and arch-rival UPS over whether FedEx truck routes should be considered under different and more stringent federal regulations regarding union recognition than apply to its airline routes.
