Thanks again captain repeat.
City and road are both hourly out here with road having a higher rate. Road is all straight time. Our city guys get plenty of OT, to the point of complaining about it.
Less than a year.
why does road get paid hourly?
Looks like BumpDraft got it (half) right, way back on Feb 2nd. Should probably give credit where credit is due...
You should learn to read...idiot
This is a ONE TIME move, presented as the benefit of the new Corp. Tax RATES.
This raise, 6 mouths early, provides a (windfall) benefit of between $1200-$1500, over the period. Next year will resort back to Oct.
This applies to those at the top tier for their location.
Not sure about the newer hires. I'll ask if/when we are ever told officially of the raise, at my location... City not told anything yet.
There are step progressions for each of your first three years depending on which pay tier your center is on and each step increases by a different percentage. After 3 years you’re at top pay.
For example: if your center was at tier B (lowest), after 1 year your wage rate would be $22.73 city or $.5539 road...after two years it would be $24.28 city, $.5954 road
Easier compliance with California labor laws...
Maybe you should, that way you wouldn't have to repeat things people have already posted. Hey did you hear were getting a 1.10 raise and a penny a mile?
It's actually illegal in california to pay commercial drivers by the mile. New law that Governor Moonbeam signed back in December.
It's an insult to the road drivers, that we get a 2% raise, whilst the city folks get 4%, in the midst of the most severe driver shortage in the history of trucking.
Why no cost of living raise in October? I thought this was a raise because they wanted to to share some of the tax breaks they got.
Using your own mantra speaking to all the people that supported the union "if you don't like it here go somewhere else". Now that is over with, yes i do think the road drivers should have gotten the same percentage raise.
Because City Drivers rule!!!!
Road Drivers drool!!!
Hey!! Look at the size of my Hat!!
Ok...I feel better now..
This is the cost of living raise. Your getting it now instead of October because of the tax breaks. $2.10 in raises in a 5 month span is a good thing if you ask me. I'll wait 2 1/2 years for another raise if they want to give me 2019's now.
We were told
we were told a couple of years ago that the pay gap between city and road drivers was too much and FedEx was going to shrink it.
Respectfully, I’m gonna have to disagree.
We must remember that the driver shortage also effects city drivers and the company has to attempt to bring the pay scales closer in order to retain quality city drivers, otherwise the majority of the city boards will be full of new hires while your road boards will be full of veterans...not exactly a smart business model IMO.
Like usual you are all over the place on this subject. The post below is from January 27th of this year. Lmao
