    You guys get something? For our Thanksgiving we got our manager reminding us that Monday would be a double freight day because of the holiday.

    I get to work the Friday after.. Like every other thanksgiving for the past 28+ years. Just once it would be nice to be able to travel to relatives for the holiday.

    Nothing. And a better question is what are they going to be taking away and with having to pay employees on my route a semblance of a decent wage and with expenses and everything I can't even afford to buy anyone a $2.00 card but that is the topic of another thread. Just hoping everyone shows up day after Thanksgiving may have to offer an extra day to everyone

    Have to agree with this. You work for fedex not Federal Express and you are hourlies to boot. You are not valued by this corporation so you get nothing.
    ​Happy Thanksgiving

    We get to work on Friday, the historically slowest day of the year! yet year after year they require a full staff, only to try and send 1/2 of us home... UPS has figured it out that it's not worth working Friday, and it doubles as a nice perk.
