    Seems like this happened today.
    We all got notified that a sta. in our district is closing to "cut costs".
    All routes will be absorbed by neighboring stas.

    Er, why would your average ops mgr know the answers? They may get a heads up on impending changes before we do, but probably not that far in advance. Loose lips sink ships.

    You're fixing to be in my position brother...when we split ours up, I lost 23 senior people over me, when the other local station closed, I got 40 to replace them.

    We had a station close 18 months ago near us. The three stations closest (including ours) absorbed all the routes. Now all three stations are running well over 100% capacity. Don't think any routes got eliminated, not at our station anyways. The other stations could be a different story. I do know that it helped with some areas where couriers from two stations had to drive through the other stations area to get to some stops.

    In some ways it is good, but for vacation bidding it just makes it worse...lol

    Luckily my sta. will not be absorbing any of the closed stas. routes.
    My sta. is pretty far away (from everything)

    HuckToohey You are entering a world of pain.

    Yup. Cutting costs is the name of the game at FedEx Express. It's ALWAYS the Ground Ops folks who get the shaft. They have cut our hours, pay & benefits, while increasing our health care premiums. What is left? I believe that Express Division is on it's way out and has been ever since FDX Ground came along and took a huge chunk of our work away. "Right Sizing" indeed.
