    Yeah, I fell off the wagon. I had him and a couple of others on ignore for awhile. After seeing post after post of just one person arguing with nobody made me "show ignored content" to see what kind of blithering was going on.

    I doubt he's a card-carrying MENSA member. You must be speaking of some other card that doesn't correlate with intelligence.

    Glad to hear you admit that the union promotes poor productivity by keeping the deadbeats and screw ups jobs intact even when they deserve to be fired. Why would you brag on one of the reasons Union companies struggle to survive? Do you think this is a good thing? Yet another reason you can keep your union. Fedex doesn't need that kind of Albatross. No thanks.

    I don't think this exclusive to the union, At my time at Fedex they had plenty of "deadbeats" that they never did anything about. I was amazed at the number of city drivers that would go out with a volume load do a switch come in with 9 or so hours and go home day after day with nothing being said. Then there were drivers who would do 20 stops or more a day and if they were a little slow one day dispatch wanted to know what was taking so long. That is one of the reason's I didn't stick around, I totally understand the principle behind seniority in a company like Fedex. I just hated that no matter how hard you worked the guy that started before you would always be ahead.

    When you get a job as a driver here you can spout off all you want.

    Not everyone in life is dealt a good hand.
    I enjoy helping people help them self's to a better life.
    In order for the person to be returned to work the company had to agree to help out. Both sides did what they believed was right.

    Dunno, I personally have never been asked to. As for me, if I were to ever be call in on the carpet, I'd request another driver to be present as a witness just as management has theirs.

    I take that back, I have been called in on the carpet once, years ago back when we were still AF, was to young to know better than to have a witness....but things worked out, I'm still here.

    Cabby, do you remember that kid from UW we saved a time or two that went to Freddy's during the mess after the merger? I wonder if he was worthy of saving since he is in their employ now?

    About as legitimate as it gets. You deserve every penny. Wow, 2 1/2x times the starting rate? That's around $40 an hour. Pretty nice chunk of change. What's the annual take after expenses? Benefits? I'm looking for a change in the very near future.
