    Default FedEx's Fred Smith is at it again

    Fred Smith Continues to Bully Congress, Holding Up Important Airline Safety, Security Legislation

    FedEx bully CEO Fred Smith is up to his old antics, repeating threats that he will cancel a nearly $7 billion order for aircraft from Boeing if Congress makes FedEx Express play by the same rules as every other package delivery company in the country.

    In Smith’s back pocket are his two Tennessee senators, who are working to block an important FAA Reauthorization bill that would greatly improve pilot training and safety, update an ancient air traffic control system and provide critical funding for airports to create more than 125,000 new, good-paying jobs each year.

    Smith’s senators won’t let the bill pass because the legislation, which has already been passed by the House, contains an important measure to close the FedEx Express loophole and require a level playing field in the industry.

    Fred Smith thinks his company deserves special treatment and is entitled to play by different rules. He thinks he can bully Congress with his threats to hurt the U.S. economy.

    Hey Mr. Smith. I spoke with a FedEx Express driver yesterday who thinks you are an arse! He went on a 10 minute rant about what a greedy POS you are and why does it take an Express employee 10+ years to reach the top pay scale? He wants a fair shake like his union counterparts who generally go through a 3 year progression to reach "journeyman" wages. He wants to know why you are strong arming with the "pull the Boeing order" BS. He claims you have 50 or more planes moth balled that could be brought into service at a fraction of the cost.
