House Moves to Protect Air Passengers

Reauthorization bill passes 267-151

Republicans also objected to language that would allow drivers and package handlers at express companies, specifically Federal Express, to organize under the National Labor Relations Act. Because FedEx was organized as an airline, its drivers and package handlers are covered by the Railway Labor Act and can only organize for collective bargaining on a national basis.


The bill is H.R. 2881
