    It's June 11th. I have not heard of any potential cuts. Maybe it's because OT is at an all-time high and turnover I'm sure isn't far from all-time high. Everyone is content and happy at express. Only thing we hear is. "Atleast you got a raise last year" and "be glad you have a job". Yep it's that "a job".

    Our dispatchers had their hours cut. (Don't think Fred is going to get his 1.6 billion by screwing over 1200 dispatchers).
    My station is still cranking out the OT.

    The failure of DRA and high volumes have ensured lots of OT for the near future. I don't think Fred is going to make his goal.

    No OT up here. Get sent out over stop count and get into OT. The next day your manager is asking you why you were in OT and telling you it needs to stop.

    We have forced OT at our station for months now.
    Lots of people on LOA(most just got fed up with this company and are borderline making crap up),turnover is real,can't get anyone to take this job off the street besides criminals and brain damaged individuals because of our new horrible reputation of being a Walmart sweatshop on wheels.

    Does this surprise you? They meet in luxury to determine how they're going to conspire to screw you any way they can. As long as they get their's all good. Eff the lot of them.

    Nothing's changed at my station. Plenty of OT to keep the part timers happy.

    Next round of cuts........get rid of all topped out couriers.

    That wouldn't surprise me. And it would be done on extremely short notice too.

    Senior managers attend kick-off meetings at the start of every fiscal year.

    well they could kick off at Denny's just as easily

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    True but that would mean the black executives couldn't attend.

    Ha! I don't think a company officer would be caught dead in Denny's. Besides, these are usually all day affairs with guest speakers, activities, and other stuff.
