The FedEx presence on BrownCafe has always been fairly small, but has been growing lately, and probably to the point where FedEx is concerned that an employee information network is being formed. That's bad for FedEx because they prefer "mushroom" employees, who are kept in the dark and fed a constant diet of crap. The shills they send to post here say that this site "isn't important", and that it is not monitored by Corporate. BS, because their (the shills) presence here confirms that MEM is concerned. My suggestion is to give them exactly what they do not want... a highly informed group of employees who start "educating" fellow employees as to the way this organization really operates. Given the latest dose of manure from MEM, it seems like a lot of people are finally taking off the Purple sunglasses, and refusing the Kool-Aid. This is a very promising sign. You know, it may be too late to prevent The "October Surprise", but there are a lot of things we can do to make it an unpleasant experience for management as well. Please remember, that they are going to lose nothing from this deal, and the aristocracy in Memphis stands to profit quite handsomely. They don't have to do this, but they will because they can cut us down like weeds instead of pointing the finger of blame where it really belongs...at piss-poor management. We didn't buy and refurbish obsolete aircraft or invest in worthless technology...they did. But who always gets to pay for their moronic decisions? That would be us, the hourlies. As the gay and lesbian movement used to proclaim, "Act Up", and don't take this lying down. I think most of you realize by now that being submissive gets you nothing but more punishment. Like they say, "The floggings will continue until morale improves", which really seems to be the way FedEx thinks employees should be managed. Start posting information you have because it might be new (and important) to the rest of us. Somewhere, there are memos and emails that would get FedEx in a lot of legal hot water if they went public. If you are in a position to obtain them and let us know, that would be "a good thing", as Martha Stewart likes to say. Spread the word, and don't be shy about posting your information. We will all be stronger for it.
