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.

Here's the Politico story: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0709/25072.html#ixzz0LYKQ5HMYhttp://www.politico.com/
