    Following Outcry, Calverton Resident, FedEx Driver, Back to Work - Riverhead, NY Patch

    As usual, FedEx hard-nosed style, the typical no wrong doing attitute became afloat with this statement: FedEx Ground spokeswoman Erin Truxal noted that technically the company had not renewed a contract with Gilliam, but that, "Another independent contractor vendor that operates out of FedEx Ground’s Long Island station hired Mr. Gilliam as a driver for its business. This is a decision made solely by the independent contractor vendor".

    Would had been too difficult to appologize and say "Listen, we screwed up"?
    Definitely yes at FedEx!

    there's more to it than that:

    what a load of crap to jump through hoops for FredEx & you'll get your contract pulled for a simple mistake?!?

    Was he targeted to have his contract pulled so they can turn it over to someone else that is a manager's favorite?

    hmmmmm........
