    I've heard a lot of talk, debate, etc about wages.

    Union vs non-union.

    Although this is not the be-all-end-all of the wage dispute, it is verbatim closest to reality and demonstrates the difference in compensation.

    How do they acquire these numbers? I'm trying to come up with these figures to bring my Ground drivers to a more realistic pay rate and even tried to get a thread started in the Fedex forum where nobody wanted to post numbers. I'd like to be able to produce these figures at negotiation for an ISP agreement but doubt that the company negotiators are going to accept a union publication as legitimate numbers.

    It is an interesting question. I'm surprised that you do not have the info...however I am going to guess that FedEx must publish them somewhere because it is not the first time I've seen it.

    Can FedEx legally hide it's employees wages ? Probably a very naive question lol

    I was surprised nobody on here wanted to share them. I constantly here from posters here how crappy Ground drivers have it and now when I'm in a position to possibly affect that situation, silence. But you've given me a starting point so now I just have to corroborate the numbers from a...let's say a more dissinterested source.:happy2:

    sam for us it depends on so many factors, it'll make your head swim...market, seniority, reviews, etc...

    That is a nice sounding assumption, but that is also assuming you "made it" INTO the spot to even get the job after likely years of toiling, and then made it as a UPS driver on your 30 day.

    A co-worker directly across the belt from me is married to a UPS driver. He wouldn't switch....

    Yeah. She works harder, he probably gets to spend her money and gets the great benefits. Why would he switch?

    She actually does the pickup route where I do mine. If I was him, I wouldn't want to lose her. She's a cute and a real pisser.
    Well, everyone around here is hung up on money and benefits. As a couple, they would make $20K-$35K more....maybe more depending on overtime. THAT's why someone might want to switch.
