    Why can't we seem to get new uniforms?

    Mid April they stopped ordering for us, if I recall correctly. But it's a new year.. can you elaborate?

    I don't know why you're not getting uniforms. I still see plenty of uniforms being shipped in to our station.

    Probably some money saving attempt.

    The new shirts kinda suck, the printed logo comes off/gets damaged really easily

    Just got my 10 shirts with purple undershirts, and 5 new pair of pants to keep my legs safe and dry. one extra small belt(i've lost 30lbs this year, due to welfare running out and eating 1 meal a day)

    Why don't they go back to where we was allotted so much and would order our own stuff. Was alot better.

    Might just be the first step toward having to buy your own uniforms payed out of your own pockets.

    Because they are effing cheap. Most stations have a closet somewhere full of returned uniforms from new hires who quickly quit. I'm sure they can provide you with some ill-fitting, low quality clothing.

    I put in a request for new shirts and shorts last week, they all arrived yesterday. No problem here. I waited until June to order them so they'd be in the new fiscal year, but otherwise no issue.

    I've got boxes full of uniforms in my attic. Usually give the beat up ones to drivers of the cheap contractors that won't buy new. I order every 6 months.

    uniforms????? I'm assuming you work for express. There probably behind the AC in your truck, you know by the radio. Fredex knows he is losing a ton with express, expect more cuts, including empty promises......

    Your crazy. No money is lost with express cause they dont pay us anything.

    I haven't worn any of my new ones because I don't like the way the material feels on my skin. I've seen others' uniforms with 'FedEx' peeling off the sleeves. Very tacky and embarrassing.

    I think the folks who are experiencing the logos peeling off uniforms may be drying them on their dryer's 'high' heat setting. I use the lowest heat setting and shirts still look new after numerous launderings. (although it'd be really great if I could get them to peel off completely)

    Try wearing a light cotton t-shirt under the new 100% polyester shirts. I hated the 100% polyester against my skin and I stunk by the end of the day. Even in hot weather I felt much better, except when I got soaked by rain! Cotton sucks when it gets really wet.

    -Also-

    I work at a ramp, no problem getting uniforms for the past year or so and currently.
    When you put in your request you can see the approvals from manager to Senior, etc. Find out where the buck stops and contact them directly with your need.
