I know this has been mentioned already, but I think the new FedEx push for increased safety and professionalism over at Ground proves once and for all that Ground personnel are EMPLOYEES. As always, the issue is the degree to which FedEx, the corporation, exerts control over both contractors and their drivers. This latest move is proof positive that FedEx does consider these people employees and holds them to an employee level of compliance. One of my first steps will be to send letters to the AG's of every state that is currently suing FedEx over Ground, and fill them in if they aren't already aware of what is going on. Just more bit of evidence that will help tip the scales against Mr. Smith, who apparently thinks he's bulletproof these days. The arrogance of this man appalls me, and with this latest move he has stepped in it up to his knees. I can hardly wait until it reaches his neck and he has to head to the sporting goods shop for a snorkel. Fred was once a pretty good guy, but that's a long time ago, and it's about time he started playing by the same rules everyone else has to follow.
