Hypothetically speaking, where would a lowly Ground driver go to anonymously reveal information? Lets say, hypothetically, there is a contractor who owns a fair number of PSAs. Every route has its share of corner cutting, but hypothetically, this one is extreme. Most of the routes are rural, with a 1 hour+ commute time to the terminal. He may ask all drivers to login after the sort, to avoid violating DOT times. Hours worked are 60-80 per week, with violations that would hit at least twice per week. One route services a very large industrial complex with a lot of safety (re: OSHA) guidelines and classes you have to take to enter the complex (thousands of acres). The staffing is minimal. One driver servicing this route is new, and constantly falls behind so other drivers have to cover. The contractor has other drivers share one contractor security badge that you swipe at the gate, and it lets you in. This badge can only be obtained after an 8 hour training, which is all but impossible to attend due to short staffing. In addition to short staffing, the vehicles are in terrible condition. They all need daily oil, power steering fluid, etc. They are unfit to drive and unsafe. One driver had breaks go out and luckily was able to come a stop. It is not uncommon to unload the sort and then wait 2-3 hours for uhaul to open. The most concerning thing is falsifying DOT times. One driver continually works 15 hours+ each day factoring in commute times, hypothetically of course. Each driver takes turns bringing the pickups to the terminal for the outbound trailer (another hour up and an hour back). One driver refused to do this because he felt exhausted after 13 hours already and did not want to violate DOT times. He was fired for "not being a team player". Under the contractor model, no one knows the way to grieve this, if you even can. Many legal issues are being skirted, if not outright broken. One route is 2.5 hours from the terminal, and the driver usually finishes up at 2000. The outbound trailer leaves at 2030, 2.5 hours away. This driver is often "encouraged" to scan packages and deliver them to the wrong place, or even take them home and deliver them the next day, due to not being able to get back in time, and also to not hurt service. How would a driver on this route bring this to a FedEx employee's (manager of something) attention anonymously, without jeopardizing their job? Would pressure and scrutiny be placed on the contractor, or would the drivers all be terminated? Every driver is guilty of falsifying DOT times, due to distance, volume, short staffing, vehicle breakdowns, and training new drivers. Several of the drivers have posed as someone else to gain access to a secure, federally regulated facility. Most only falsify DOT times. If attention is brought to this, the fear is that the drivers will be punished and lose their jobs. The other, more ominous thing, is knowing peak is on the horizon and the working conditions will only worsen. What is to be done, and what implications are there for both drivers and contractor? Where and how does one bring attention to this? The best resolution would be pressure placed on the contractor, resulting in him being "strongly encouraged" to buy new vehicles, hire additional drivers, etc. to improve conditions. I know that "encouragement" exists in this company, but I fear these conditions are too severe and would result in a collapse of the routes, termination of all drivers, etc. Thoughts? This is all hypothetical of course.
