The 50 mile thing

princess

smh..
I do not have the energy to explain it it..but anyone at FXF who thinks they are getting shaft cause they may lose their job (spouse included) are in no way getting it as bad as National. Just my 2 cents.
 
If the only locations you have an option to transfer to are 50+ miles from your current location, you can opt for severance.

maybe has something to do with old Natl teams that don't live anywhere near 50mi to the terminal, that are currently renting motel rooms since they broke them up

The 50 mile thing is you have to transfer and the terminal you are going to is more thing 50 miles from your house. The company will give you $3,000 to move to your new location.

How sure are you about this? All the choices I was given are well over 50 miles away.
 
They could have just shut National down princess...or made you go to the bottom of the board..but the didnt..they let national come to freight...Freight is making the money and National is looseing it. Your lucky you have a job.

umm...I think you misunderstood my post..

Spouse works for freight 6+yrs, will lose his job for sure, He can get another one. we don't have to uproot our lives and family to keep it..hence, I said National seems to be getting the crappier end of the stick. Just my 2 cents.

The last time I checked Freight and National were both losing money, hence the merger. Ground and Express were the only ones making money. We're all getting the shaft and I just hope that everyone lands on their feet.

And that's the final word from the accounting dept. Opinions are just like belly buttons..........everybody's got one.
My 7 yr old granddaughter fixed your typos.

Cuse freight has the systems already. Natl isnt as up to date with stuff. It sure was a waste just now switching time clocks and all.

Anybody know which one they are closing in Buffalo?

He will get 12 weeks severance pay plus unused sick time
