Here is how I see it - why I am so rabidly opposed to UPS/The Teamsters pushing for unionization of FedEx. Put it in the context of a stock car race. The fact that I feel stock car racing is stupid is not part of this, follow me here; The leader of the race, UPS, has led the entire race. It is still leading. Every 30 or so laps, the cars come in, the get fuel, service, go back out & race. In the last few laps, the #2 car, FedEx, has not been as far behind as it has been in the past. Why it is gaining is unknown, and, in fact, is completely unimportant. What IS important is that the driver of the UPS car notices the oil is getting low, the engine heat is going up, and the tires are starting to get worn. The UPS car, as well as all the others, need a pit stop. So there is a crash with other cars on turn three, which means the fans are happy, a yellow comes out, and the UPS car and the FedEx car come in to pit. The FedEx car gets serviced, and the UPS car, to address the overheating engine & the worn tires, decides to repaint the car a different color. The pit crew also gives the driver a handful of nails, tells him to toss them in front of the FedEx driver. 40-50 more laps go by, the UPS engine is dangerously low on oil, the tires are getting completely worn thru, but UPS is still leading. And the paint job looks terrific. Unfortunately, FedEx is still gaining. Next pit stop, FedEx does the correct service, and, in the haze of engine smoke & burning tires, the UPS pit manager does the "right" thing, and decides to replace the pit crew with Hawiian Tropic Bikini models to make things look better. They would not know a stock car engine from a stockyard bull. But damn they look good, and the green flag is out. And FedEx is catching up......... Dumb story, I know - point is - FIX OUR PROBLEMS FIRST!!!!!! The Union Hates Management & vice versa, drivers hate the job, managers are not managers but mouth pieces. If we were humming along perfectly, then sure, go after the competition in the Tonya Harding Tradition. Who would feel bad then? Nobody! It is the golden rule - those with the gold make the rules. It is NOT "when you start losing your gold, make sure everyone else loses theirs as well!
