The Union Threat To A Strong Ups

I'm sure happy you published the article "In the line of fire at the Teamsters" (Top of the News, Aug. 30) about the unions and United Parcel Service Inc.

Union leaders are up to their old tricks: trying to cripple a strong, progressive, competitive business that provides service second to none. I deal with common-carrier trucking firms, which are often unionized and, worse, under the "control" of the Interstate Commerce Commission. If you want a nightmare, have a unionized work force overseen by a government agency. That is guaranteed to kill any business--and drive customers frantic.

I deal with UPS almost daily, and they are efficient and competitive. What more can one ask for in business?
