Have not seen or heard anything but wondered if anyone has concerning bonus for working during pandemic. Been with a Fed 32 yrs now so well aware how tight they are with us drivers. Even Wal Mart has paid out one billion overall in bonuses to employees. Not huge sum per person but better than nothing.

We were told fedex spent over 130million on ppe (and shirts and pins I guess)so hazard pay is not an option. However the CFO got a 575mil cash bonus for handling the covid situation excellently........:halfdead:

Whoops 565k. Half a mil I guess that's ok though....
The company beat Wall Street estimates during a difficult time and stock went from 90 to 170 range. I would rather that money be given to me but that is the way it goes. Does he deserve that money, probably not. but does LaBron James deserve 37 million? Probably not.

I’m supposed to feel guilty? I started at 15 per hour and did not top out overnight. Everyone should get a bonus ,one yr ,new hire or 30 yrs. etc.

The guy is retiring end of this year, besides that my point is you can tell your Frontline workers we can't do anything for you because we're losing money because of the pandemic. Then at the same time give a single person a cash bonus like that for a job well done during the same pandemic.

Can you post the memo saying they can't do anything for us? I haven't seen that.

We already got our payout. It said "FedEx strong" and told us to wear it with pride. Do you need more? You work for the greatest company in the world. Just be happy.

When asked if we would receive hazard pay we were told by the district manager that higher ups stated that with the spending on ppe, additional flights, and other expenses due to the pandemic Hazard pay was not a possible option. tbh if we get our step increase idc.

You don't need a memo for that go ask.

What they did for us was "PPE which some stations barely got any, we got 4 masks made 3 of them fedex branded (who paid for that) some stations got t-shirts, rubber bracelets, a bunch of covid safety signs, fedex "heros" banners, some trucks even got #fedexstrong decals, and of course #fedexstrong pins.... sounds like more wasted funds to me and a half million dollar bonus to the CFO.... gotta look good ya know.

They said they still have no info on raises, However would I be surprised if they told us due to losses caused by the pandemic they cannot give us a step up. Nope wouldn't surprise me.

You'll see it a month from now when Fat Freddy denies us a raise while telling us to stay FedEx strong.
Why do you and others complain and worry about something that hasn't happened yet? If and when it happens, then complain and worry about it.

Why not worry about the raises when the news comes out? Oct. is a ways off.

I will worry about it when the news comes out, however saying you can't give hazard pay but you can give half a million cash bonus is what we were talking about here.

Such is life in the executive level. Go get a MBA and work your way up and it could be you. Just like CHEAP stock options, corporate jet privileges and great seats to sporting events.
