Default FDX May Classes Cancelled

Does anyone know why they cancelled the May newhire Classes. Had a buddy ready to start May 14th. He got a call last week that all newhire classes are cancelled for now with no explanation.

I've "heard" its primarily due to issues with the bid.

I've also "heard" that there will be a class in June.

I also "heard" the bid was coming out over a week ago. Obviously, it didn't...
