Smile Dont You FedExers have your OWN Forum?

Come on; Disputed pairings? Article this or that? Internal Pilot Association issues? Blah blah blah? Really? Other than FDX'ers, nobody cares much about your internal issues. Even my lowly little airline has our own internal pilot forum in which we wouldn't have to air our laundry on a public forum. One would think that a pilot group the size and significance of FedEx would have your own forum. Don't you? Just curious.

(before anyone gets their panties in a bunch, I type this with a tongue-in-cheek tone)


Cheers!

The Fedex Forum is too dangerous to frequent. Have you ever been to downtown Memphis?

Why can't you just not read them? I wish the History Channel didn't have shows on searching for Bigfoot. But, do I whine about it or really care? No I just find something else to do.
This forum is one of our best communication tools. Every piece of info we get from the company and our union is filtered and watered down by massive bureaucratic machines. Here, it's just mixed in with an acceptable amount of bull****.(debatable point I know) Our crew force is scattered in every time zone on earth. A post on here will be seen by 500 guys tomorrow. And if they tell 2 friends, real info can spread faster than by almost any other form.

They've all ready been on this merry-go-round before, with a "Purple" forum right here.

If you don't like reading all the FedEx stuff, then don't read it...pretty simple.

Actually we do not. We have a forum on Alpa, and you must be a member to log in. There lies the problem. Our managers are members also. Some used to even run our union. As a matter of fact, some of our current union officers will become managers in the future if history continues to repeat itself. So we come here.
