    Looks like they have an agreement.

    While we non-union suckers didn't get a raise, pay large premiums for our healthcare and have no pension, our competition is providing a raise, basically free healthcare and a fantastic pension plan because of a negotiated contract .

    Congratulations Teamsters, the rest of us remain slaves to Fred and Wall Street

    Yep. We most certainly do NOT need a union at FedEx. PSP is all we need.

    What he said.... Congratulations! If ever there was a case study for the value of union representation, a comparison of FedEx and UPS is it.

    Most 5 year UPS drivers will be making twice as much as a 15 or even 20 year FedEx express employee.

    Even with the much lower cost of labor, poor old Fred still can barely make a profit. What does that say about the competency of FedEx management? Plus, consider the FedEx market level scam, which adds another scheming consideration to the topout scam. And, UPS drivers do not pay for healthcare premiums.

    And don't forget with all these benefits, UPS still makes billions in profits per their earnings announcement today. I've always been a believer that large company's have a lot of waste at top hence why they don't want to pay the people that earn it for them. UPS is as lean at the top as their bottom because of the union. It forces them to be lean. FedEx on the other hand isn't forced to be lean at the top so they have to steal from their front line people to make up for it. You can be union and make money. UPS proves it year after year. Keep drinking that purple cool aid telling you other wise so the fat elite can continue their millionaire lifestyle.
