    SFA season is upon us, meals and BZs will flow,
    Ops mgrs will smooze you and want a great score.

    Just remember they got their raises last year,
    they got their bonuses last year..

    And you got 2% or 3% and a health care plan that
    increased more than your raise will cover.

    We know that answering the question "are you paid fairly for your work?"
    is the biggest joke of the past two decades, and that FedEx doesn't take it seriously.
    And sure maybe 25/30yr employees who are topped out ARE PAID fairly, but those not topped out are not PAID FAIRLY

    FAIR \ˈfer\ Adjective : treating people in a way that does not favor some over others

    So do yourself a favor and don't take the SFA at ALL, perhaps if we are lucky
    FDX will take notice.

    I like my Ops Mgr, but this time around it's not about the Ops Mgr, send a message
    to Memphis, they don't give a rats ass about the SFA, so we shouldn't either.

    Ain't taking :censored2:, when they ask why, I tell them the same thing. Do you think you are paid fairly if some couriers are making more money than you? Usually ends the conversation fairly quickly.

    Operational needs Non desistas. Non exieras.

    We have an SFA informational meeting this week. I guess they want to see how angry we are BEFORE SFA. LOL.

    Or your manager is going to be begging your workgroup for a good score. More than likely he or she will be doing most of the talking.

    I've noticed a lot more of this stuff lately. The pre SFA blitz on how we should answer the questions. Meetings, mentions on internal videos and signs on the BB's. just think if they put out the same effort into doing right by the employees, they wouldn't need the PR campaign or the SFA.

    How has it been since the SFA carried any real weight? Ah 1990 something?

    Best question I've heard was "Why am I running a route at 108% or better every month for a year and I'm making less than a topped out courier who can't make 95% on an easy route?"

    MAKAVELI Well-Known Member

    Well, what's the answer?

    It depends on who you ask. I say the answer is "Because topped out employees are often overpaid relative to their production." If I had my way, your production would be a major factor in the calculation of your raise. There's no excuse for underperforming topped out couriers who make almost as much in an hour as a performing, newer courier makes in OT.

    I like my idea better top everyone out in 4 years like UPS.;)

    We had our meeting a couple of weeks ago. Manager said she'd really like a score of 100, so I told her I can guarantee that ain't gonna happen!

    I know it's hard to believe, but top-out at FedEx once took only 2 years. Now it's basically never.

    Yeah, yeah. And on the 7th day, you rested. Heard it before.

    I hate it when old timers try to justify their non-performance. It's almost like stealing.

    You do realize as one ages they get slower? It's natural and normal. Sounds like you advocate discrimination.

    I advocate discrimination against people who can't properly do the job. Age is no protection for declining job performance.

    Gosh, I love the legal arguments made here. They are so... informed! LOL!
