FedEx is dropping a discount deal with more than 100 organizations, including the National Rifle Association. The move comes nearly nine months after the shipping giant stood by its agreement with the gun-rights lobby group.
While other companies dropped the NRA following the Parkland, Florida school massacre, supporters of stricter gun laws responded by calling for a FedEx boycott.
The shipping giant tells Local 24 News, the NRA will no longer be associated with any FedEx marketing programs beginning Sunday. However, NRA members will continue to receive the discounts.
FedEx says the NRA is among the more than 100 organizations that are transitioning out of the discount program.
FedEx sent this statement to Local 24 News:
“We are transitioning some account holders in more than 100 organizations in the FedEx Marketing Alliance program to other pricing programs. Account holders that participated in the program will continue to receive the same discounts on FedEx shipping, and we will work directly with these customers to ensure a seamless transition.”
