FedEx Health Benefits Suck!
The gutting of our healthcare care plan earlier this year while drastically increasing premiums had very little to do with Obamacare and everything to do with saving the company tons of money, improving profit per share and pumping up the bottom line. Basically enriching upper management off of our very own backs!! Yeah, and we are a "people company".
This is a big deal that will cost most of us dearly going forward. Contract Now!
The UPS plan and countless other union plans DID NOT suffer the same fate this year. Go look at the UPS Freight Teamcare Healthcare plan. It blows the FedEx plan
