Captive Meeting In San Bernardino

This past Tuesday there was a meeting with VP's at FedEx Freight in SBO with only 15 employees who were  to attend. These 15 employees where coached on what questioned to ask, do you believe this crap!?
Everything was fine and dandy until the questions where brought up. Then everything went south. 

What corporate obviously doesn't understand is they are so out of touch with its employees in SBO and all of the West Coast, that their bullshit charade doesn't work here in the WEST!

Stand Up and Be Counted FedEx Freight Employees!

Post from " The Brown Cafe" blog. Mr. FedEx

If and when the new UPS contract is ratified, they will have a solid raise and still not be paying a penny for medical coverage. Us? We're headed the other way. If you consider our non-raise in March, higher insurance costs, and fewer hours, we aren't just falling behind...we are plummeting. Plus, take a look at the latest "Career Opportunities". I didn't count and do the calculations, but a quick scan indicates about 75% of those jobs are PT.

So, if you are new to Fred's Fun Factory, please read the writing on the wall, which says "Leave now, and do something meaningful with your career". I really mean this if you are 40 or under, and please take it from somebody who knows first hand. It is very difficult to find a good job once you are over 40, unless you have some specialized skill, education, or experience. FedEx is NOT going to give you that, unless you are only here to be PT and get some Tuition Refund assistance. Otherwise, you need to head for the exits.

We are rapidly approaching the point where most Express couriers will be making half what a UPS driver does, for essentially the same job. This is counting wages, benefits, and retirement. Wages? About double for a topped-out UPS driver vs. a FedEx new hire. Benefits? Free medical and dental at UPS. You pay through the nose at FedEx, and the providers suck. Retirement? You don't even have one, and UPS has excellent retirement benefits.

FedEx Express, in free-fall without a parachute.
