    Can anyone provide info about when bonus checks will be cut? The reason I ask, is because i will postpone deduction for 401 k at that period, so that they won't take $$ out for said 401. After tax & 401 take-away, I end up with enough $$ for ZIPPO.

    I would recommend NOT opting out of 401k (even temporarily), for the sake of saving a few bucks on that check.. My main reasoning is, they do match it, so you would be throwing away free money and contributing nothing during that period.

    Plus, I doubt we're talking about much money this time around. Regardless, your actual take will be greater with the forced match, and I seriously doubt it (the difference) would be a life altering amount.

    To answer your 1st question, last year the checks came out on July 20. Also, it came as a separate check. Will that pattern hold this time around? Probably. Will there even be a bonus? We'll know that in 8 days... http://www.nasdaq.com/earnings/report/fdx

    Ok, I'll be a negative Nancy for a moment...

    Now that the threat of the Union is but a distant memory, write ups have increased, and I would be shocked if we receive anything noteworthy

    I know this won't necessarily help your take home pay, but keeping your 401K deduction will lower your tax deductions.

    The payout is tied to the OM and not to union activity.
