This thread is unnecessary and a little silly, especially since it was started by a Purple guy. Iím taking my Brown behind back over to the FedEx page to rejoice in all the lively discussions. 😀

Also, how about those Denver Nuggets?!? What a season!

As another FedEx guy, please do! Too many yes men at FedEx. Itís getting better, but the more outside opinions the better!

We donít need or want your input. We donít care how youíd vote on our TA. We donít care what you would do if you were in our shoes. We will decide what to do with our TA and our MEC without your spears, grenades or support.

PS: Boilerup is always welcome to post on a FedEx topic.
Forget this guy's comments. He would be happy with you on the FedEx forum if you agreed with him, no doubt. You are welcome and appreciated on the FedEx threads, whether you agree or disagree with us. FedEx and UPS pilots really are all in this together, when one group wins, it only helps the other. It's really good to have knowledgeable people who are invested in the success of the pilot group, who are not in the thick of it right now, to give input.

As a FedEx pilot I encourage anyone from any other airline (including UPS to come to our little forum and help us mock our concessionary TA. Itís an embarrassment for ALPA and if it passes it drags the whole industry down several rungs on the ladder. Carry on boys.

(also UPS, you boys should still be ashamed of taking a second contract extension instead of helping raise the bar)

We are outnumbered almost 100x by the Teamsters' contract which NLRB allows to strike 1August. Atlanta clearly handles them first.

We were sidelined by that ratio and relationship. Not a factor at FDX, where the airplanes are first and the truckers are not co-organized.

We'd have sat from last TA extension expiration until after all the final shakeout long after 1 August.

The bar would have been set lower for everyone else along the way- and no, we did not raise it high enough vs. even inflation.

We got industry leading hourly rates and additions to the a plan that everyone else was able to pattern off of, including you. Not sure how you can argue that didnít raise the bar. Our higher guarantee at 401 is more Ďstraight payí compensation than your current TAÖ you should be thanking us. Imagine what rates youíd have gotten if we hadnít signed the extension. Itís easy for you FedEx guys to say this or that, but the fact is you donít have teamster drivers as a factor.

The usual blue on blue suspects, from every tribe, as usual. We're basically the same guys doing basically the same job. But let's fight each other on the internet!

My father is a retired truck driver for UPS, and I remember the '97 strike. He always took pride in that the pilots stood in solidarity with them. Hopefully it won't come to that this time around, but I know the rank and file really appreciate your support. Too bad the old man won't be there to see his truck fitted with AC!
