Rockefeller Statement on FAA Bill and FedEx Provision

June 17, 2010

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Senator John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV, Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation issued the following statement:

“I have said very clearly that I believe Fed Ex workers should have the same right to organize as UPS workers do. At the time the Senate took up the FAA bill, it appeared this provision could not pass. But the effort goes on and I am continuing to work with Democratic leadership to secure a strong vote on this issue.”
