First, anyone who doesn't think this was absolutely deliberate is delusional. When the split premium was eliminated our senior told us "there had been a lawsuit" and that FedEx couldn't figure out how to administer it". What piss-poor excuse were you given? The obvious plan is to have all remaining FT people on extended splits. If you don't like it, what are you going to do about it? Fred has completely screwed you...again. All except for the shill duo.
