    Heard thru the grapevine that the Amazon contract expires this August. Can anyone verify this?

    Not true. Our local Amazon hub has said that UPS won't be able to handle them once they open, which is very soon

    The FNN is good but it is not that good.

    yes. UPS doesn't give a :censored2: about the employees and their families we didn't have off if that's what you mean. I did decide and go in. there was approx. only 60 percent attendance. lots of people called in. there is always poor attendance on sundays, dont know why UPS even keeps us working on sunday, but easter sunday the attendance was quite poor.

    my hub works all Sundays. even Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day.

    we even get screwed out of 3 days weekends because we work the Sunday before Memorial Day and Labor day

    So do we have more whining to look forward to on Mother's Day or are you going to man up and realize that working holidays that fall on Sundays is part of the job?

    what does the Feeder News Network (whatever and wherever that is) has to do with the Amazon contract?

    what is it a website?

    The FNN knows about operational and technology changes long before they are announced and they would be among the first to know of any changes associated with Amazon.

    i think the guys I heard this from know about FNN. must be some validity to it. most workers in my hub are happy that we may be losing Amazon.

    Your co-workers are idiots if they think losing Amazon would be a good thing for them and for the company.

    Oh boy oh boy. Another "we are losing Amazon" thread. Wish I had a fist full of quarters for every time one of these popped up.

    Why would anyone think losing Amazon is a good thing? That might be the dumbest thing I have ever read on this forum.
