    Fred only cares what politicians and Wall Sreet think...not us. Actually, if you want a letter, try and contact Mr. Smith. He doesn't want to be bothered by hourlies. Seriously, you will get written-up for trying to contact him.

    1. UPS Drivers: Hard, physical labor, brutal pace.

    2. Express Drivers: Fast pace, critical thinking and decision skills, a proficient courier should be paid as much as a UPS driver because they are worth it in terms of the money they make (and save) for FedEx. Some Express employees have extra certifications (DG, International etc) that make them even more valuable. It is currently taking about 2 new DRA-type employees to be as productive as a "7" courier.

    3. USPS Drivers: They work harder than most people think they do. The "bad apple" exceptions and anti-union GOP rhetoric make them look like slackers. They aren't.

    4. Ground Drivers: Straightline deliveries...yawn.

    5. HD...Straightline, low-volume. low skill set required.

    Oh, and FU "Fred". The real deal wouldn't even consider talking to a lowly hourly, much less consider their opinion. We could have saved the company huge money with DRA, but nobody bothered to ask us our opinion. Now, they're sending 5-6 people a day into customers instead of 2-3 (all opcos combined). Smart, reall smart.

    UPS drivers of course.
    We do the job of an Express, Ground and Home Delivery driver all rolled into one.

    ​Besides that, we are UNION!


    I would say the former door greeters at Wal Mart, but that's just my 13 1/2 cents.

    Not so, contacted him directly and he had his personal assistant contact me to look into the matter on two different occasions. Of course both situations got swept under the rug but at least I tried. I know a courier who contacted his office about being told to get a haircut. Fred called him directly at station and told him he'd have to comply with the rules. We asked what it was like and he said it was like talking to God, lol.

    Van's co-worker: "Hello, Mr. Smith? They said I have to get a hair cut. Do I really have to get one"?
    Mr. Smith: "Hell yes"!
