    If you have not taken the time to look closely at the new healthcare insurance FedEx is providing you next month, you need to take a second look. In comparison to what unionized employees receive at UPS (not to mention our very own unionized pilots) we are really getting screwed. Can't think of a better reason for union protection. This has got to stop!

    :eek: Your insurance is garbage. I'd put the value of that at $150 a month for a single employee. $500-600 a month for a family. Can't believe you all put up with that.

    Understand fdex is "your" health insurance company. It's self insured and this means, as you pay your premiums to them, you make the company money. The less sick employees, the more profit. You lose, they win...always.

    A self-insured company is never a good thing from an employee's perspective. There really isn't any comparison at all between the two. One is a real plan, the other is shat.

    Jesus.... And I bitch about our benefits package.... I pay almost $100/month for me, the wife and the kids. $500-$600/month would bankrupt us!
