    Serious question for serious shareholders

    Not to defend FDX but are they breaking any laws by doing this? If they are following all the laws and this is the result, do you blame FDX or the laws? As a shareholder, I want UPS to be maximizing by ROI and I hope their accountants are looking at every law and every legal tax exception to pay the lowest taxes possible and maximize ROI to the shareholders. If the laws upset you, take it up with your elected officials. FDX, and many other firms, are simply following the laws that our elected officials have created.

    Firing of Protesting Workers

    Way to think it through NYC politicians. Cancel contracts with UPS means less packages for UPS which means more unemployed workers. Brilliant strategy. Better idea - let UPS and the Teamsters work through the existing agreement in place and let business operate. Parking tickets and city contracts have nothing to do with the core of the issue. 250 union employees violated the agreement and were warned of the consequences. This is the 2nd time a walkout has occurred with this local. Wonder why the national Teamster leadership has not said anything? Because they know the local was wrong and violated the contract.

    Violating the terms of a contract is silly? What happens in a non-union environment if you walk off the job for 2 hours?
