    I really don't feel like I want Express couriers in my union anyway.

    can we then assume that you still have done nothing in your organizing of Express since you have not yet been fired?

    Hey, MFE is the one who said that any attempt to unionize would get the OP fired so simply put either MFE is wrong, he is not attempting to organize, or he has been fired. His assertion left no other possibility.

    I'm anonymous this time around, and no, I was not fired back in 1996-1997, although they certainly tried. Can you honestly come on here and say that a drive to unionize Ground drivers wouldn't be met with mass firings? Hell, these people aren't even employees.

    Code82 is showing some real ignorance to the realities of Ground. As you know, Ground doesn't succeed if employees make more than the $12-$14 per hour most ISPs and contractors pay, OR the $10 per hour real rate of pay you scammers pay when a driver is on salary and works 60 hours.

    Fred would crap gold bricks if you or any of your fellow contractors allowed any sort of union activity. If you didn't, then YOU would be gone...very quickly.

    You, and other Ground types show a real ignorance concerning the way Fred Smith deals with unions. Is it denial, or just a lack of information?

    Oh. You are anonymous this time. You didn't throw that caveat out there to code 82, did you? And no, not n the least bit confused about anti union tactics. As you well know, my position has always been that if one is going to organize then they should get on with it. Yes the deck is stacked against it happening but that is not going to change. Do it or don't, but don't wait for a knight in shining armor. They're busy.

    I know full well that Fred holds almost all the cards. We're still trying, despite your best efforts.


    How in the world do you organize non-employees? Alphabetically to make the executions go more swiftly? Maybe by birthday? Just curious, because I would really like to see it...

    the ICs i saw that was fed up with the scam contracts settled out of court w/ a gag order; some moved on while others worked for another contractor instead of dealing w/ the contracts directly

    one IC went from 3 routes to 1 because he can't keep quality drivers on the other 2 routes he purchased... now, he makes the same or less than me after expenses
