    Default DHL Slashes Sales Force

    DHL slashed the sales force today. Rumors still floating around that DHL will only deliver domestic and international air express starting in '09.

    I would have more respect for the company if they just told everyone the truth and offer us all severance packages for working until the end of the year.

    Thats a real shame. This has been a terrible year for unionized labor.

    Bad Year, its been bad for Labor since Ronald Reagan was in office. He showed the employers how to "F" over the workers with the Air Traffic Controllers strike.

    My cousin works for DHL Global Forwarding out of JFK Airport. Are they also unionized and Teamsters? I'm not sure how the different divisions play out.

    I am well aware of that fact, however, this year has proven to be espesiallly challenging. I have never witnessed such an attack on so many different union divisions. I know the economy has alot to do with it, but here in N.Y. we have had more than our share of battles.

    Transportation.
    Communications.
    Carhaul.
    Teachers.
    Hospital workers.
    Police.
    Refuse.
    Border Patrol.
    Customs.

    These are just some of the many battles, that have ended up with striking members. This seems to be the year of the attacks on the middle class.

    My nephew just ordered a computer part online and it was shipped DHL Global, but when he picked it up in his mailbox (college) it had a UPS label on it!

    DHL, in my opinion, will soon be a memory. UPS has it's foot in the door with the airline deal transporting DHL packages. it's only a matter of time before the Germans sell out and Big Brown takes over 100%. they are a money loser in the U.S. it's amazing to me that they're still running that sh*t operation.

    DHL will make it here, through the holidays, but after that it's anyone's guess.
