Billionaires are different from you and me, for obvious reasons, including the fact that they buy much pricier baubles than we do.

A sleek car costing $100,000? Why that's just an impulse purchase. A few million bucks for a Matisse original? Go ahead – it'll liven up the hallway. How about throwing a fat wad of cash at a university to get an academic chair named for you? Sure, it's all a part of living in BillionaireLand.

Then there are megalomaniacal mega-billionaires like the Koch brothers. Using money from their industrial conglomerate, their foundation, and their personal fortunes, these two far-out, laissez-faire extremists are literally buying public policy. Their purchases of everything from politicians to the tea party help them push the privatization of all things public and the elimination of pesky regulations and taxes that crimp their style.

FedEx Hourly Employees walk off the job!!

FedEx Corp. (FDX) canceled several flights and delayed deliveries of thousands of packages because hourly unionized employees in Paris have been walking off the job in a labor dispute.

“A fluctuating number of our hub employees have staged work disruptions at our hub in Paris,”

Maury Lane, a spokesman for

Memphis, Tennessee-based FedEx, said today.

Fewer than five flights were scrubbed and “thousands” of parcels were slowed because of the walkout, which began May 11, Lane said. FedEx, the operator of the world’s largest cargo airline, has 1,800 employees at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, he said, declining to say how many stopped working.

FedEx’s money-back guarantee for late deliveries remains in place for the affected packages, and the company is tweaking flight and delivery plans to blunt the effect of the walkouts, Lane said. The Paris workers are represented by several unions, and bargaining occurs each May.

“We continue to negotiate and will hopefully resolve the situation as soon as possible,” Lane said. Most of FedEx’s U.S. employees aren’t represented by unions.

Agence France-Presse reported the walkouts earlier.

Today at SBO our tv in the break room was removed! Someone said it was because it was too expensive? I thought it was paid for with the money from the recycled bins and some percentage from the vending machines profits?
Oh well just add this to everything else they have taken. Full time positions,line runs,bonuses,overtime,picnics,respect,dignaty,etc.
And at the same time we had some big wigs up stairs and they bought catered food for them? WTF!

Solomon releases statement on Boeing complaint

NLRB Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon today responded to inquiries regarding a complaint issued April 20 against the Boeing Company with the following statement:

“Contrary to certain public statements made in recent weeks, there is nothing remarkable or unprecedented about the complaint issued against the Boeing Company on April 20. The complaint involves matters of fact and law that are not unique to this case, and it was issued only after a thorough investigation in the field, a  further careful review by our attorneys in Washington, and an invitation by me to the parties to present their case and discuss the possibility of a settlement. Only then did I authorize the complaint alleging that certain statements and decisions by Boeing officials were discriminatory under our statute.

It is important to note that the issuance of a complaint is just the beginning of a legal process, which now moves to a hearing before an administrative law judge. That hearing, scheduled for June 14 in Seattle, is the appropriate time and place to argue the merits of the complaint. The judge’s decision can further be appealed to the Board, and ultimately to the federal courts. At any point in this process, the parties could reach a settlement agreement and we remain willing to participate in any such discussions at the request of either or both parties.  We hope all interested parties respect the legal process, rather than trying to litigate this case in the media and public arena.”

Mr. Solomon made the same point today in a

brief written response to a letter received earlier this month from Boeing General Counsel J. Michael Luttig.

Breaking Bread With Bob Tillet Part Two

Bread is the staff of life - Food is necessary for people to survive.
(However, FedEx salary for all employees is below poverty level. So, I will now take this moment to say….PAY THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY DESERVE! MORE MONEY, KEEP YOUR BREAD.)

Bread-and-butter letter - a letter or note written to follow up on a visit; a thank-you note.

(This is a clear reference of you asking Mark Link if Alex would change his letter to assist you in your lie you told to Kathy. NOTE TO YOU BOB! I HAVE VIDEO! Or this could be a direct reference of Kathy asking several people to change their written statements in regard to you threatening several people with violence and kicking some ass on your property…I wonder if Fred Smith knows that MRL is your property?) Did you get your bread and butter letter, BOBBY BOY from any of those guys? NO you did not!)

Cast one's bread upon the waters - Act generous because you feel it is right and not because you expect a reward.

(Did you want several of the employees in the round table meeting today, this morning to make a generous contribution to your wrong cause of sedition and lies?) I mean several of the guys wrote negative reports on you in other peoples favor. Then you abruptly invite them to a FEDEX ROUND TABLE meeting, and they are not even round table participants, which I have a copy of the current list of people on the round table. Why did you not invite the regular round table members to their own responsibilities as round table members?

Know which side one's bread is buttered on -in order to survive, people need more than physical things like food and shelter. People need mental or spiritual things like satisfaction and love.

(Bob were your representing the fact that you are LOVED at MRL and that no matter how many accounts you are not fighting for, that the employees of MRL should love you and not their (NOW MISERABLE PAY CHECKS!)

Man does not live by bread alone….

Prophecies Bobby Boy…

Well, Bobby Boy. I am sure the new OS and D supervisor Sasha is very aware of all of these bread prophecies and symbolism. I mean... she learned very quickly from you, Alex Parra and then quickly taught Mark Link on how to create DOCK WORKERS THAT DO NOT EXIST OR EVER WORKED FOR FEDEX in order to move OS and D freight.

Just cut a bill…with a fraudulent OS and D NO BILL FORM and PRO number and Dock worker… Um…Note to BOBBY…those dock workers do not exist…!

What is funnier is how I found out what you guys were doing. Thanks to me being liked by more people than the four of you have rocks for brains. You see….Best Buy Supervisors told me what was going on…because Sasha…told one of them what you guys were doing? Then the BB supervisor gave me all the PRO numbers that were moved from OS and D! When I checked all 275 bills, not one of the bills were cut by a real dock employee. But, all the hand writing on the no bill forms…were Sasha’s, and Alex Parra’s! HUM! You guys have to be smarter than that…


Breaking Bread With Bob Tillet Part One

Old Bobby Boy Tillet decides to break bread with a few of his drivers. However, once again Bob Tillet is an absolute fool. This guy brings to the employee round table meeting, bread product from Panera Bread! HUH! What? You have to be kidding, was the remark I made after a person in leadership called to tell me this. Bobby, after all your failures and non-interaction with the employees, your obsolete and sedition investigations. You go out and decide to bring bread to a round table meeting. A meeting with guys and other employees that, still to this day have no clue as to who you are, but what you represent. An absolute failure. Here, Bobby Boy…let me give you some advice on trying to warm up to 500 or so employees that have no clue as to who you are, but an empty suit. The first thing you do, you buffoon is to NOT bring bread to a meeting! Especially meetings, with a room full of people that think you are an idiot. Here is the semblance of the bread being brought to the meeting, Bobby Boy! Bringing bread represents to people a number of symbolisms. However, everyone at MRL can go out on a limb and be safe from falling into a pit of alligators, when they all feel this way about you bringing BREAD to a round table meeting with a hand full of employees. Here is why: SYMBOLISMS OF BREAD: SO THE SIMPLE MIND OF BOBBY BOY CAN UNDERSTAND HIS OWN DUMB MISTAKE AGAIN! Maybe he should host another company Bar B Q for the low bill count around that place! Someone's bread and butter - someone's basic income; someone's livelihood—the source of one's food. (I can't miss another day of work as a FedEx driver my bread and butter is in the overtime!) NOT! 10-19 or if you are an office worker going home in six hours as a full time employee at MRL. Stand up, NOW and be counted!) Bread always falls on the buttered side - When things go wrong, they go completely wrong. (Not only did my phone break, but it broke today—today of all days, when I'm expecting a really important call…from customers! DO YOU GUYS REMEMBER HOW LONG THE PHONES WERE BROKEN WHEN BOBBY BOY CAME, THEY WERE BROKEN FOR WELL OVER SIX WEEKS…IF NOT LONGER.) Our former and much better SCM, Henry would have been all over AT and T. In fact he had been all over them…I remember one day turning into the yard and he and Rich Meyers were out on Riverside talking to AT and T, standing by transformers and a ditch AT&T dug! What did Bobby Boy…do…he let the phones ring in Los Angeles or not ring at all for six plus weeks. When we were trying to take all of YRC freight and stomp their necks. Kind of funny, now thinking that maybe BOBBY BOY…was helping out his old company YRC stay afloat! Someone should investigate that situation and find out, why he kept the phones out of service for such a big break bulk, missing pick ups and trailer swaps at some major customers. WHY? Bread and water - the most minimal meal possible; a meal as once was given to prisoners. (Usually used in reference to being in prison or jail. Or just a plain old institution such as FedEx has exemplified itself as! Bobby Boy I guess you are the warden of that old greying heap of steaming brown promise. If you stare at it long enough, it will turn PURPLE…and maybe promise you something. Maybe a diamond!)
