    I didn't hear it myself from a manager, but one manager at my station told another Express courier yesterday that we won't be getting raises this year. Has anyone else heard anything about this?

    We get our split raise of $.40/hr Aug. 1.

    If that's true, I suspect they will be severely understaffed this peak.;)

    Wouldn't surprise me.

    They've also delayed paying out the MAP bonus for unused sick time. This is after they were bragging about reaching the profit improvement plan goal and having a great 4th quarter. No matter how good or bad things are the one thing you can count on is FedEx changing the rules to suit the company.

    I heard diff at my sta. Our sm told us we were getting an immediate raise for middle range n some of us were going to top out was in a morning meeting he told all of us i doubt he would talk all this crap n in the end not keep his word . its been advertised too much at least round here. Am in the west coast. He said this last week,sometimes i think they tell all of us diff stuff since we are all in diff regions.

    A lot of op's mgr's like to screw with couriers heads so take it with a grain of salt. But based on this company's track record it wouldn't be shocking.

    For what it's worth . Next week the 4th quarter operating results and end of the fiscal year summary comes out. You might be able to glean something from that from a pay perspective. Of course remember last week they raised the dividend and you know that it's going to be made up someplace.

    FedEx does a lot of stupid stuff, but I can't imagine they would announce a ten step plan and then say no raises before the year is even out.

    Well if they don't give us a raise this year we can all rest assured it's being done (or being not done if you prefer) with our very best interest at the company's heart.
    You know, we won't have to worry about getting shoved into a higher tax bracket and stuff like that.

    God bless ya Fred.

    If Great Britain does leave the common market the only major power left will be Germany and they can't carry the rest of the continent all by themselves. The potential for a full blown collapse of the European economy is real as evidenced by the fact that German banks now pay negative interest rates on deposits. So if you go be prepared for a quick return to the states.

    The socialist policies of the countries in southern Europe bankrupted the continent.

    And a lot of currency manipulation and wealth hiding in Swiss and off shore banks.

    We just got our market level adjustment... some folks up almost $2...
    next week probably pay reductions to help pay for TNT and the Pharmaceutical lawsuits.
    But we'll gladly help pay because we LOVE FEDEX...
