FedEx Corp. has added a team from Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck to its lobbying efforts.
The delivery company is engaged in a lobbying war with rival United Parcel Services of America, Inc., over legislation that could make it easier for FedEx workers to unionize. FedEx is already represented by several law and lobby firms, including the Breaux Lott Leadership Group, Van Scoyoc Associates, and Dutko Worldwide, among others. UPS is represented by Holland & Knight, as well as an in-house team of lobbyists.
Al Mottur, the managing partner of Brownstein Hyatt's Washington, D.C. office and one of the lobbyists listed on the lobbying registration, said the firm is "just helping in their efforts...it's a fabulous company and we think they have a good story to tell."
Brownstein Hyatt's registration shows the firm will be lobbying on aviation and labor issues, specifically the application of the Railway Labor Act and National Labor Relations Act to express delivery services.
