    Specifically, what would Washington do in this particular case to influence this sale? Who would they give money to in this case that would affect the outcome of this purchase?

    Has nothing to do with Washington contacts since TNT is a European HQ company with limited presence in the US. Simply a marketshare issue. UPS has about 17% marketshare in Europe and if they acquired TNT would have been the largest player in Europe. FedEx has limited share in Europe and with the acquisition will now have about 17% share, leveling the playing field.

    If I was an investor in TNT I would not approve the deal since UPS offered substantially more two years ago versus the FedEx offer. The shareholders should not approve the deal and should pressure FedEx for a better offer.

    If things are so bad at UPS, why work there? There are plenty of other options for employment. Why would any reasonable person work at a place they think is so bad for them?
