Comment from a Friend of CFTW
I am a former non Union GI/Estes driver who knows a lot of Former Viking/Fed Ex drivers who run on the line board And i heard the company wants to pay them along with the city drivers the same rate of pay. I heard 35 per hour? That is long over do and i think that is great.But my personal feelings are that line drivers in all fairness should make 50 per hour.And again this is A company decision to pay this rate I don't feel that line drivers should be upset.I think line drivers should argue with Management that your Job deserves more per hour for the reasons that you are in Climate and road conditions changes all the time example Snow-Rain-Winds driving at Night and early mornings away from your families on holidays and fatigue drivers from other Trucking companies and just regular people trying to reach there families afar.I have worked City for 14 years and line for 15 and most important work Union now "Teamsters" I have been injured from work and do not stress about my job not being there or not having my Benefits paid for Health and welfare that means every thing is paid for including my pension.So I think you drivers should stick together and think about why Fred Smith is doing this? Demand more and Demand he pay a Pension and your health and welfare. He makes a TON of money it is about time he take care of his drivers the heart and soul of Fed Ex Good luck and think about it.
