In regards to the raise delay, it will help pad numbers for the 1st quarter of the fiscal year, allowing FedEx to show the stockholder's that the measures they have taken are working. I believe the paperwork states raises will be discussed in October, not necessarily implemented, allowing them to have flexibility in padding numbers leading up to peak if they have to. We are losing, if they are not gone already, truck dispatchers and are getting truck coordinators. The equivalent of stations not rating 'leads'; therefore, the company can pay these 'coordinators' at a lower rate than dispatchers. Our senior said Xp packages will phase out to ground, I honestly can't speculate on the time frame, but he also said 2day will move over as well. With the implantation of the new ground barcodes, this will allow for ground transportation of 2days as well as air transportation for those across the country. A week or so ago we had a meeting with our senior and district manager... WOW, could they make it any more obvious? He randomly started talking about 'job security' and how he works at FedEx because he knows he'll have a job tomorrow, not 100% because of the pay. He did say the pay is a good thing but the job security is a great thing. He dragged that on for about 10 minutes, and then the DM started talking about how we are all under the same umbrella... I'm not inferring that he implied our jobs are at stake, I am saying though, that FedEx knows express is talking and that was their attempt to calm the waters. I've also considered the option of filing bankruptcy, this will allow more restructure if the current measures don't satisfy the stockholders, they could in turn re-negotiate huge cost (i.e. Pilots) and get out of long leases that are huge overhead burdens.
