View Full Version : FDX Employment Verification

I haven't had a trip through Memphis (or any hub) all month since the employment verification requirement came out and was wondering if anyone has used their local ramp to process the paperwork?
Can the ramp send it in or do we need to Comat it ourselves? Who do we send it to?

It's due by Monday, March 1st.

FCIF explains it. Read paragraph: "If extenuating circumstances..." Doesn't look easy. Good Luck!

Did mine at the local ramp. I used a standard overnight letter from the manager to the address listed on the FCIF and billed to a third party (my acct.). Poor chain of custody and too much personal info to use Comat in my opinion. I also let my ACP's assistant know because they are keeping track of compliance...

I contacted the local ramp manager, printed FCIF, and completed the process.


Painless.

Reasonably painless in person with the admin ladies in AOC Flight Ops (yes, I realize this thread started saying he couldn't get to a hub).

I used the station manager at our local delivery hub. (The one you go to to pick up missed packages.) I called first, stopped by with the paperwork & copies of the FCIF. Turns out all of their employees had to do the same thing last month, so they were familiar with the process. The station even took care of the overnight letter for me.

I gave mine to the local ACORN chapter. They filled it out and told me I'll get a check soon.

Did they also give you 12 different voter registration cards and ask you to vote for their candidates?

They will also give you great tax guidance on running your own underage, illegal alien house of prostitution, as well as tips on handling the unruly pimp in your life.

Local ramp manager did the verification for me no problem. I'm curious if this is a requirement to gain new contracts with the government?

What's the over/under on the percent of pilots that have this completed by Monday?

Lindy
02-26-2010, 01:20 AM
98%

why? Didn't FCIF state that the pilot was to be removed WITHOUT PAY / NOQ Status until this was completed?

I would say that is an incentive....

I didn't see that in the FCIF. I haven't transited the planet during the weekdays (managers weren't there during the weekends with the line dogs) nor am I driving on my dime to get this done. They'll have to wait.

So - you are saying you have not gone to work since this became a requirement? It can be done at any ramp or station not just MEM and takes less than 5 minutes.

They'll have to wait.

Maybe, you will have to wait to get paid :eek:

It'll be interesting to see if the CBA allows that to happen. Obviously there are conditions of employment that must be met, but this program is voluntary on the part of the company.

This is just another area where line pilots are treated the same as Christmas sort temp help so it's "fair" and politically correct. I'm thinking that between the Pilot Records Improvement Act and the USPS contract requirements, the pilots could have reasonably been exempted from this "voluntary" program.

You "have no special skills" so why would you expect to be treated any differently?

Wait a minute. I'm confused. Are we against illegal immigration and employing illegals or not? That is what this verification is all about? I mean, as conservatives, this is what we wanted, right?

So once the last pilot has been verified Illegal Immigration will be over. Better head to that mexican place before Monday.

Max,
UPS has pilots on long term military serving the war effort as officers and they wanted them to complete the requirements too and make sure they were not illegal immigrants. The logic is brilliant. ;)
Relevant questions are worthless, mindless compliance is the rule of the day. :rolleyes:
Regardless, Pretty tough for some on active duty outside the country to show up at the few designated places UPS chose in the states to prove their citizenship. Perhaps FedEx has some similarly situated employees?
Yee hah. Hard not to make political commentary on this gov. mandated 'verification'

Since I'm junior I've been coming thru Mem on weekends and no managers were working during the Fri or Sat night sorts, imagine that. The nearest ramp is over an hour away. Not on my time. Hopefully someone will be there the next time I come through on Fedex time.

PurpleDog -- Do you jumpseat to MEM? If so, during your next j/s ask the ramp manager to complete the paperwork.

My point exactly

If you are operating a trip let the ramp you are operating from do it - if it is an "out and back" do it on the turn.

Every ramp I went to, on my last trip, asked if I had completed the forms.

It's not that hard!!

That's strange they didn't ask me at KIX, PVG, or ICN. Things can get a little harder outside memphis out-and-back range.

So, <75% it is.

On the upside, we may not be overmanned after the 28th. :eek:
