    I am sure they are the best in their field, but we needed them five years ago. If the Economy turns around slightly, they may have a chance....

    .......maybe last step before fed ex buys u.s. division from vitran so they can go hide in canada. similar to dhl and daimler retreat. that might be a good thing.

    i know there's a terminal where it was from pennies all the way to $2 an hr. there were smiles from a handful of drivers, but most of drivers were pissed off. another bad move from keylon. they should've gotten everyone on same pay schedule and a cost of living raise first. congrats to those who did get the adjustment.

    that has always been the thing here, we are all VT now, we should all be on the same pay schedule (plus cost of living of course)

    But the Dark Side is powerful at Vitran. If anybody can corrupt them into complacency, apathy, or "eh, that"s good enough, let the next terminal/ driver/ mechanic worry about it", Vitran can!

    From what i heard we had four new fedex upper management defectees start over here this week. Wish i new what was going. Are they just getting their ducks in a row to buy us out or is keylon really trying to run with the big dawgs.

    now they have to fix the pay schedule. pjax drivers have 2 wks held back when vitran only has 1. they should either catch up pjax drivers or hold back the vitran drivers.

    Is it just me, I sense a lot of bad attitude from some when we discuss FE coming in here? Considering we have posted losses every quarter I have been here, and FE has posted profits, what am I missing?

    I think 6 months will be enough time to see what will really happen with this outfit, I am just going to sit back, do my job and let the big dogs get us out of this rut, I know one thing for sure, is that we need some inspiration at each barn. cause the morale is in the crapper, I think a cook-out or something in that nature. I mean if you get alot of the workers together off the clock and their mind not full of stress, I think that will make the team members appriciate wearing the vitran uniform, the only problem I think with that is wheres the $ going to come from............

    Some sort of take over seems eminent. If these FedEx guys are as good as reported, why are they being let go so easily. But the question is why the interest in a sinking ship? Perhaps there is a deal for a gateway into the great white north. FedEx takes over U.S. operations for a partnership into Canada.

    Back when CK started I heard he came over here do to micro managing by his bosses, not that they did a bad job, just look at the $$$$ numbers, but i am the kind who always looks for bigger and better things too. What if we.....? Why are we not ........? That is fine if a boss dismisses my ideas, but when they don't even want to hear them due to being stuck on an attitude of "better" than me, yes I would go somewhere with someone that "thinking outside the box" is appreciated
