Fred's boy didn't do it. How long before FedEx is un ionized?
The writing is on the wall. Fred should start writing the check now.
i will be out volunteering to help the fedex employees join. Everyone of us should start the leg work and talk to your fedex guys and gals and start pointing out the positives of joining.
No need to unionize..Let do our job and prove we are better. The employees will follow suit! Make your customers happy and make no shortcuts or mistakes we made in the past.
Get our business back!
If it happens, It won't happen for a while. I don't think that will be his priority.
I think the first thing he will do is re-distribute all of you guys's wealth
With all the bad crap Pres.-Elect Obama is inheriting unionizing Fedex should be on his "I can make this happen" list.
IMO. the unionization of Fed ex would be a good thing for UPS and for the Fed Ex employees. However I don't see it a anything that should be on any President's list of things to do.
I don't make over 250,000 dollars a year. So he won't be touching my money.
Wanna bet? Your taxes will go up when he lets Bushes tax cuts expire.
Obama has stated that the Bush Tax Cuts will expire for the wealthiest Americans. It's not going to affect 100% of the taxpayers.
trplnk you are aware that the Bush tax cuts has a sunset clause in it when in was written. The tax cut was designed from the start to expire. http://www.smartmoney.com/personal-finance/taxes/what-the-bush-tax-cut-means-for-you-14345/
Secondly it's not the president that writes the tax code? It's congress.
He won't let Bushs tax cut expire congress will.
I guess we will spread the wealth around now
Rod, you retirees should be concerned.
The similarities of the new administration to Carter's administration are many and in particular the large national debt.
One of the easiest ways to reduce the national debt is to let inflation go up. Not the 21% of Carter but 7 - 8 % is possible and more important - doable through administration policies.
5 years at 7% inflation and your non-COLA based pension has been reduced by 30% in terms of buying power.
Although eligible for retirement next year, I am planning to work 3 - 4 more years at this point and the inflation aspect has become the most influential reason for my delay.
I will re-evaluate when I retire as we move through the next 4 years.
I don't make $250,000 a year, but my taxes will be going up...My mom has some rental property with about 40-50 tenants...Their rent will be going up.
I thought we have a horrible contract. Why would we wan't to burden Fedex employees with the same?
Absolutely. If UPS is burdoned by huge pay/benefit commitments, we should definately be sure that all of our competitors have the same bloated baggage to carry. It's not fair that only UPS employee's must suffer, and I will be the first in the picket lines outside of FedEx once I get laid off.
What makes anyone think that the people who earn over $250k,or us for that matter, are going to stop playing the same games to minimize their taxes that they have been playing up to now? Deductions,loopholes,losses,whats going to change?
How can you unionize seperate independant contractors??
That was sarcastic by the way.
Separate names with a comma.
