FedEx Freight: They Just Don't Care

 Once again FedEx Freight  has kept the pay between City drivers and Linehaul drivers at about $8.00/hr difference in California. City will be getting a $1.65 hr putting us at $34.63 hr. Line will be receiving a $2.00 increase putting Line at about $42.00 hr.

When we ask Management why the difference in pay? Their answer was "Linehaul run at night." At our yard, Line also do day runs also. Do the day Line drivers make less per hour? "No"Managements answer, Silence.

Don't get me wrong they deserve to make good money. But City drivers don't just sit on our ass all day.

We have to physically unload by hand 1500lb totes.
"Linehaul drive at night."

We breakdown 2100 lb pallets by hand.
"Linehaul, drive at night."

We deal with customers. Good ones and Bad ones.
"Linehaul drive at night."

We have to be office clerks. Sign bills of lading. Enter BOL's into wands.
"Linehaul drive at night ."

You do the math!

Our benefits also increased by $2.00 more. But that's another post for another day.
