    Got any good rumors about the upcoming contract?
    How 'bout this years bid?

    Post 'em here, I'll start:

    FNN has it that there will be 8 Feeder jobs cut for the bid.

    FNN isn't what it used to be. Too many unnamed sources and too many conflicting stories.

    Shifter driving jobs will be TTQ. HERE, we don't even require shifters to have a license of any kind.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Just curious if anyone knows what our raises need to be just to keep up with average inflation. I know the answer but am curious to see what other people think will cover inflation.

    UPS will create 20,000 full-time combo jobs.

    I keep hearing that PT bennies will be taken away. Something about UPS wants to get rid of the central states. (I don't even know what that means, just what i keep hearing.)

    Hopefully there's a grandfather clause for current PT's receiving benefits. It would royally suck to lose them

    Indeed! without the benefits I would have no reason to stay.
