There have sure been a lot of BBQ's, "courier appreciation cakes" and such lately, huh? Ever wonder why that is? My guess is that Fred isn't so sure that his Republican pocket poodles are going to come through for him on preventing changes to the RLA, so he's trying to make you think that "FedEx cares' by filling your tummy with goodies. Don't go for it. It's just another cheap attempt to make you think FedEx is a decent employer. Congress is coming back into session, and the RLA controversy will be back on the front burner as soon as the FAA runs out of money. These are "throwaways" for FedEx because they cost next to nothing to the company. Fred and MT3 apparently think that we're just dumb enough to think that the beatings are going to stop by doling-out a little free food. They won't, and if FedEx and Delta get the changes over-ruled, the bat and chains are coming out of the closet. Yes, good old Fred knows that many of us have more than had it with his games, and would happily sign union cards. All the management "strike teams" in the world aren't going to prevent a massive move towards unionization at Express given the crap pay and working conditions if the RLA voting rules get changed. So, Fred is going to feed you full of as many Costco hot dogs as you want in order to save 20-year topouts and below market wages. Please don't be stupid enough to believe that anything is really changing at FedEx. It will absolutely, postively be more of the exact same fecal matter we've been enduring for years. Guaranteed.
