    3 questions:

    1. Will the new 22.4ers gradually take RPCD jobs?
    2. Are PVDs gone until Peak 2020?
    3. With FedEx exiting SmartPost, does RPCD get Surepost back?

    So IndecisiOn, with your Yes, No, Yes -- and I respect your insight -- what does all of this change mean for the future of RPCD earnings going forward? Will we have good jobs with benefits, or not?

    To my mind, here is the issue: Given:

    1. The reality of 22.4
    2. Year-round? PVDs
    3. FedEx elimination of SmartPost
    4. Hoffa retiring
    5. TDU rising
    6. eCommerce booming
    7. Non-conforming packages blowing up

    As fortunate RPCDs, what does all of this mean for our future. The world is full of examples of workers who lost out to economic change, who did not see it coming.

    Let is not be us!
     
  20. For 2020,
    We're creating more driving positions, opening up 7-day delivery, AND losing the equivalent of 50% of all e-commerce volume. Cheers!
