    We were told at a meeting today that we are being switched from MetLife Dental to CIGNA Dental. Preventative care is 100%, but restorative care (fillings, crowns etc) is only 50% instead of the previous 80%. Hooray...what a deal!! Screwed over again. Oh, and your Health Care premiums and deductibles are also being raised. Bend waaayyyy over.

    THANK YOU, FRED!!
     
  2. Raised by how much??! Only a few dollars a month right?? Haha

    All so Fred and his corporate big wigs can get their 80% pay raises and to please Wall Street.
    While Fred is eating his lobster and caviar, the rest of us will need to be sipping soup after our teeth fall out.

    Y'all don't need no effing teefers to be a currier. What a crap company this has become.
     
  6. We'll all be at the soup kitchen begging for food soon. We'll have plenty on time on our new 6 hour split shifts.

    Begging is against policy. I would love to make a cardboard sign and sit on the freeway onramp in my FedEx uniform asking for a handout. "Please Help. I work for Fred Smith".

    Guess we will be going back to the 1700's and carve our new teeth from wood...Or we can look like this, No-Teeth.jpg

    Clearly will affect the more senior, older courriers much more significantly than the new hires.

    There is a certain symmetry there.

    The new Dental Plan allows you to go to a carpenter for wooden teeth. If you can find a welder on the provider list, you can get steel Russian teeth.

    But only if it falls on a Tuesday, in a Leap Year, during a tornado.
