I have noticed some changes going on at my hub, some small some bigger ones. First, we have always used the truck wash to wash our sprinter vans and step trucks. Pay was taken out each week from our contractors settlements for this, now they have stopped that and we can't use the wash anymore. Yet they have come out with their clean campaign, supervisors going around checking your van and telling the contractor what needs to be done. In my case the wheels of my 2004 Dodge sprinter van, used to be an Express van, needed to be painted and the sticker that said operated by FedEx Ground needed to be removed. They also used to take money each week for uniforms from the contractor, now that has stopped as well, and he has to pay full price whenever a driver needs something. I see a growing trend of FedEx doing everything possible to separate themselves from the contractors and drivers of this company. Does it have to do with lawsuits such as accidents ? I don't know. But the only people who really count at this job are treated with total disregard. Last week an unloading supervisor missed a trailer or three that hadn't been unloaded yet as we were all in the office trying to get our paperwork We had to go back out to the floor and wait over an hour. Ground had already left and so they brought all that crap to our side. No package handlers either so Supervisors had to unload everything. They brought me one large package, I told them it wouldn't fit, tossed it on the floor and left. No action taken against the obvious overlook of the Supervisor, imagine if I had missed 30 packages in my truck that I failed to deliver. When they screw up, it doesn't affect their going home time, but it can push us into heavier traffic and getting home real late. Customers don't like it either, I just tell them next time chose UPS.
