    I didn't find any official documents, but we've logged on and one the
    #1 screen, type in SALARY
    we've seen from 1.9% to 3.0%
    What have you seen?

    That means nothing. I didn't bother checking but those numbers could have been left over from last march for all we know. I'm already planning my budget as if we're not getting raises in October. Too much whining about how " ....we need to do more....".

    I dont think we are getting raises. Manger said the AM meeting that express is only pulling in 1% profit for the 4th quarter, its not looking good, bla bla bla...already setting the stage for raise denial.

    The piss poor 1% has alot to do with this stupid DRA.

    Station budgets are getting blown out with the extra hours and all the new hires to accommodate the routes it creates.

    That's in addition to how many hours it is adding to individual routes , appearing as if you threw darts to come up with stop order.

    1% is pretty bad.

    Yes, but look at all the money they are "saving" via their incredible management skills. The more they do, the higher the losses. I say, keep up the good work!! If the first few hits against the iceberg won't sink the Express "ship", put it in reverse and hit the iceberg again. BZ to MEM!!

    We need to shoot for -1%. Then, Fred will have to take a Xanax and drink a quart of tequila before he makes his next announcement to the financial press about all of the cuts and profitability he has promised.

    Don't worry with this years 3% insurance hike, and next years 5-8% hike(trying to force us to choose the "govt" option) Fred will get his -1%

    A few of us pulled it up the other day, all of us are topped out. The raises vary from 71 to 7 cents.

    So if all of you who looked at it are topped out, correct? if so then perhaps performance based raises are back?

    what criteria would it be based without reviews?

    Route66, I don't know Goldie said that a few topped out crrs saw raises from 7-71cents. If they are all topped out
    presumably all making the same amount, why would some get 7, and others get 71?

    I know at my STA there is one person who makes just about what I make, and they got 2%, and I will presumably get 3%

    Really this discussion is rather pointless, because if our jobs all stay as they are currently even if we get a raise
    we will be taking home less $$ next year.

    It's pointless because there has been no talk about raises , wether we are getting one or the amount, since they told us it was being deferred. Now I guarantee if the numbers are really bad for the 4 quarter and into the new fiscal year the possibility of no raise is likely.

    Past behavior indicates that absolutely anything we "get" will be taken away in some other form. This is FedEx SOP, and always has been. When was the last time you received a raise, and there wasn't a corresponding takeaway, hours cut, or insurance cost increase that more than offset your "gain"? NEVER. In other words, this is an academic argument. Expect to experience a continuous net loss in take-home income from here on out. Just another reason we need a union, because FedEx does whatever it wants whenever it wants to, and we have very little to say about it.

    If you want our miserable existence to change, sign a card, a DO something to stand up to them.

    Instead of a raise FedEx is giving us an extra 5 weeks of vacation this year. That is if you are in California or Nebraska.
