Question PC's VIPs message, your thoughts?

Okay,

I don't think this is an illegal job action! How about a role call style thread about your thoughts on PC's VIPs message.

Personally, I thought the "cost" table was an interesting tact for him to take. Based on the current economics and the "insider" site info, I think it was a mistake in the debate but...

What was the admission/info about a new TA that only covers some sections?

My suspicious mind thinks that this is a ploy to get us through peak this year without a contract, or hiring, or major section revisions...but maybe I'm wrong?

How about some calm and non-emotional thoughts about this topic. Yeah, I know it's the blogosphere, but I'm really interested in my brother/sister's comments on this...especially the TA revelation.

Unity, Hound

My only thoughts are: this is an attempt to create division in our crew force, I would rather avoid direct negotiations, and my NC speaks for me.

Actions speak louder than words - the company never once mentioned "PiBS" during our many, many months of interim talks, only to suddenly surprise us at the table once Section 6 opened, with a not-even-conceived PBS system with tentacles into virtually every section of the contract. And we are the ones delaying the negotiations???

Haven't read it. Don't plan on it. Anything to do with negotiations on the web site I have to access to get to my flight plan is a safety distraction.

Default Make it happen

My thoughts are that PC needs to approach this issue as we do with most issues at FedEx.

Make it happen. Tell your people to get on it and make it all happen.

Sending placating messages to the crew force with PFC is nonsense. Use the fortitude and "can-do" attitude that has been so successful at everything else to make the contract happen.

Exercise some leadership and get it done.

No more Smoke and Mirrors. No more justifiable delays.

Get focused. Sit down and get it done.

A contract can be done. We have waited too long and have listened to too many great excuses why it hasn't happened.

You are the guy in charge of it all - MAKE IT HAPPEN
