So the general census seems to be that the current hand shake agreement sucks. So what is the rank and file's counter offer?


Here's what I want:
-8.5 language that protects all drivers regardless of Seniority or progression point. (Unions like to brag about the forty our week. Time for the Teamsters to live up to the legend.)

-3 year progression: 1st year- $20.50, 2nd year- 25.00, 3rd year- Top scale.

-Yearly raises tied to inflation.

-Discounted restricted stock options (we are all USPERS right? We should all get a piece of the company.)

-$15\hr minimum wage for part time employees (FedEx paid me $12.85\hr in 2006, therefore anything less than $15 is pathetic)

-Tuition reimbursement for full and part time employees

-Locker rooms complete with showers. (Again FedEx offers theses amenities, so does the Tesla)

-Fans for the trucks cargo bay

-$100 voucher for work shoes (FedEx...oh nm you get the idea.

-Free socks! (Most important demand, non-negotiable)

What do you thing the temps get up to in a 53' Feeder trailer on the road all day? At least you get paid more then minimum wage and no benefits.

Starting pay $15 an hour
4% or better pay raises
Keep the day after Thanksgiving
Tighter language on Hybrid Drivers AND SurePost
Benefits after 90 days, Make Benefits FREE again. (Guess this is on the Union, since it is under their control)
Opt in for over 8.5 hour days

Seems reasonable. I would add, that whether it's 9.5, 9.0, or 8.5, the grievances should apply towards penalty pay (using the language in Article 17--1/2 your daily guarantee for every pay period they don't pay the 9.5 penalty).

15\hr minimum wage for part time employees (FedEx paid me $12.85\hr in 2006, therefore anything less than $15 is pathetic)
I'm fine with $13.00. I just wish they would give catch up raises for current PTers.

Tuition reimbursement for full and part time employees
In my area, this isn't a contractual issue. It is offered out of the goodness of the company's heart to attract more workers.
