The presumed new chairman of the U.S. House Transportation Committee said a provision sought by UPS and the Teamsters that would make unionizing FedEx easier is effectively dead.
Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., said he would streamline the bill, removing union-backed measures pushed by outgoing Chairman James Oberstar, D-Minn., to ensure quick passage.
“Mr. Oberstar’s gone and that issue is gone,” Mica said.
