    Dang JD! You are absolutely right... I would have bet that the city guy could not have made close to the same. The numbers show that he could get very close. I stand corrected. It would still take a couple more hours, but fair enough, for all the reasons you gave. :1036316054:

    I'll also agree that I don't want those hours confined in the truck all day OR those hours humping freight...

    I think we won the race to the bottom of wages among the ltl's. Our raise is still a big secret i don't get it.

    While I agree that the rumored increase will, in fact, bring most locations up to an admirable level, those of us currently at a serious deficit to the competition will continue operate at an noncompetitive level.

    I need to verify the latest announcement, but Old Dominion (in my area) is said to be going up to $25.75 vs FedEx Freight's 23.68. If true (and my source is pretty reliable),there is no possible way for the annual increase to get us even close to that. Now, if our local pay scale (GPD) was based on accurate info, as far as market conditions in my area, then (and only then) could an annual increase put us in a competitive position.

    Lets recap/update the market for those less fortunate, keeping in mind that Cnway, S/E, etc, are all due for further increases in the coming months:

    Conway: $25.48
    Old Dominion: $24.95 $25.75
    CENTRAL TRANSPORT: $24.50
    Southeastern: $24.48
    Estes: $24.xx
    FedEx Freight: $23.68

    Note: We don't even need to mention Brown, anymore.

    In this market fed ex is at 25.08 per hour and Sefl isn't even at 24. OD and Conway are both over 24 here and like you, I don't want to discuss upsf

    The bottom pay scale would need a 3 dollar an hour raise to be second to UPSF there is no way we are getting a 3 dollar raise.

    In my area pay is the same as yours. Word has it that we'll be at $25.88 but like I said it's just talk. Won't believe it till I see it

    Rumor here is that fedex frt is getting $1 raise this time. They are already number 2 in pay here.

    Don't for get to subtract the higher cost on insurance premiums. It will more than wipe out the raise, between higher premiums and poorer coverage. We will get the short end of the stick like the last 6 years.

    You fedexers pay only half as much as we do for health insurance, get a small pension, loads of discounts, and get OT. You are also well over $1 per hour more than Sefl here. Keep asking; maybe they will give you more to keep out ibt.

    The big issue for some is the inconsistencies. Many Most seem to be competitive, there are at least 5 locations that are "off the charts" NOT competitive. If those 5/6 that were short changed had received the correct GPD adjustment, the upcoming annual raise could quite easily put FedEx in a very competitive position.

    We can certainly hope :1036316054:

    Even that optimistic prediction would place FXFE in the #2 spot for only a short time. CNWY will certainly bump their rate up in a couple of months. Also, it has been publicly stated that FXFE wants to be competitive in EVERY market. If true, they'll need to address the 5 known to be way behind. Four in SC and at least one in WV.

    If we were comparable, even within 50 cents of most of the competition, I would not harp on this issue. But since we are not (locally), nor will we be after the raise, I will continue to point it out.

    So to be clear on this email rumor from corporate the amount taken out of our check won't increase or the high deductible won't go up?

    Then with that info we need at least a $2 bump to break even from last years pay cut.
