    Default DHL layoffs continue 2 years later????????

    I am writing this in order to establish an updated dialog among any of the remaining DHL drivers, located at the approximate 26 teamster represented stations, hanging on throughout the nation....Here in St. Louis, we are still experiencing layoffs and labor cuts even 2 years after the destruction of domestic service!....How many other DHL stations are continuing to layoff drivers and not appearing to have the interest or desire to grow; as any growth in business will require workers to do the job!.....The lowest driver in seniority at STL has almost 23 years of service with the company!....I am curious as to what the pulse is around the rest of the country?...What has been happening at the other stations?....What is the company's objective in doing business?.....How can labor continue to be cut and growth continued to be expected?....All responses are welcomed and appreciated......

    From what I'm reading at some YRC and i think some ABF barns...it seems to be the trend. Weird trend. More freight and lay guys off or don't call guys back who are layed off. There have been a few posts like that.

    It seems to be the latest trend in management, the 'do more with less program'...lose more customers with less service, expect employees to do more with less, and more bonehead decisions with less accountablity. You get the picture.
