WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT 20% ????

June18, 2007

Fedex Freight announced its revamping of the VPEP.The Company said that they would be withholding 20% from hourly employees and 50% from salary employees from your bonus checks. Then distribute the withholdings the following fiscal year. Most likely, when you get that incentive money back, it will be taxed, they get it pre-taxed. In addition, do not forget your 401K contribution!
What happens to that 20% -50% that whole year?

FedEx Corp announces that it will trim fuel surcharges today by 25% on cargo carried by its FedEx Freight divisions to lure business. Seems that FredEx is supplementing the fuel surcharges most likely from YOUR VPEP,from YOUR INCENTIVE BONUS’. Instead of charging the customers. Better Yet! Did Fred Smith get a percentage taken away from him? I do not think so! It could be that his “CONTRACT” would not allow this!

Fair pay and decent conditions are the most important way we make our society fairer. Unions and collective bargaining won me the rights I have at work, and the fairness that I enjoy in the community. If we don't stand up and defend our rights now, we will be much poorer, in every sense.

I am joining the rally because I believe that every working American has the right to have a "a fair go" and deserves protection from being exploited by unscrupulous employers and business who believe profits are made by slamming down wages and conditions,no medical retirements,and a much worst pension, and treating their most important resource, the workers, like commodities.

I am for the Teamsters because I want Fedex and the people outside to know, who is taking advantage of the part timers to realise that there is a significant problem, having no medical benefits,working only 20 hrs a week and Fedex expect us to pay for our own cobra medical benefits, label them as 'Unfair Employers' unworthy of support in the part time workers.
I am really in support of those workers who have had the courage to tell us how they have been treating us under these terrible conditions.
I am against a government that only serves the wealthy 10%.
I am against a government that has overseen a steady decline in the country's infrastructure.
I am for the type of society I want to live in. A society that is fair, where all American can share in the country's wealth.

I am keen to participate in a community action aimed at highlighting the matters of concern to working people and their families and sending a clear message to our incumbants that - WE KNOW! Teamsters is the answer Trevor

I am really to fight for my rights as and my rights at work, the rights of all workers, the rights I want to pass on to the next generation. I am also rallying in the hope to bring down this dictatorship and the sheep that follow blindly,thank you change fedex to win,and the Teamsters.

Teamsters are for our rights, I am more concerned for the younger people coming into the workforce. I have first hand proof of many instances where young workers have already been exploited because of their lack of rights regarding working conditions - no-one seems to be there to support them against ruthless employers who are already abusing their power and are exploiting the young workers because they are not able to defend themselves and are intimidated by these brutish bullies!!! dina, my husband deserves better.

I am really for the workers of this company (fedex) who no longer have a voice because they are too afraid to access a union.

Ports Protection
Without harbor truck drivers moving freight containers into and out of our ports, the U.S. economy would virtually come to a halt. But instead of being treated with dignity and respect, they are treated like sharecroppers on wheels. An estimated 60,000 port drivers work extremely long hours with low pay, cannot afford health or retirement benefits, and many have one foot in bankruptcy court. They currently have no legal ability to improve their situation because they are usually and deliberately misclassified by their employers as independent contractors instead of as employees. The sharecropper status of port drivers affects everyone because of the troubling implications for national security, highway safety, and environmental pollution. Change to Win and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters are partnering to improve ports protection by raising the job and security standards for truck drivers at our nation’s ports

Workers want a workplace-committee form of representation. Three-fourths of workers desire independently elected workplace committees that meet and discuss issues with management, which some see as a supplement to collective bargaining (having both) and some see as useful as a stand-alone mechanism for voice. Very few workers (14%) are satisfied with their current voice at work and seek no changes although another 10% are unsure about what they want.

Workers see management opposition as a major reason for their inability to obtain the workplace representation and participation that they seek. The post-WRPS surveys confirm the finding in What Workers Want that workers are cognizant of management hostility to collective action through unions, and that this weighs heavily in their consideration of unionizing.

After reading this site, and watching your video clips, especially the 40 minutes video, one it makes perfectly sense, I am also a part time dockworker with no benefits, I also would have to pay high prices for cobra medical insurance, plus also have to contribute in the 401k on barely 20 hours, luckly I live with my parents or else I would'nt survive, I dont have another job because I go to school, and when I need medical attention I go to san bernardino center, so now I'm considering to go union.

Reading this website three weeks ago I've learned so much and educated myself and now I teach others. I absolutely enjoy being in a union drive campaign,It’s fun to be involved. If you’re not involved, you don’t have the right to complain. Of course, I’m willing to listen to everybody’s opinion, but it means more if it comes from somebody who is informed and active.”

In the old days," Justice says, "the way things were done was with respect. That’s what we’re asking for as workers. That’s why we're unionizing, for a decent pension, retired medical benefits, and we just want to be treated fairly."
