Do you think DHL gives a flying-fig about how you, I, or anybody else feels about what they're doing? Do you honestly think anybody outside the circle of those directly affected cares?
Anybody wanna explain what happened to my post here and the other gentleman who was talking about getting off your ass and stop your crying?
Is this forum biased? Funny how posts just disappear.
things that make you go hmmmm..
Well, I won't take on the entire profession or "what made it what it is today," but I DO feel that what happened at DHL/Astar/ABX is unprecedented, and came abut largely because some people forgot which side they were on. I.E., they were "only looking out for themselves" Of the 3 operating groups, ABX was probably the least culpable in the whole mess, but is getting sucked into the undertow with the other 2.... it's people like you who don't care and only out for themselves that made the profession what it is today. Have a little pride and self worth. Everyone, even you will benefit from it.
Perhaps the reason to switch gears and go after DHL and ABX, instead of just ABX, is from past practice. ABX has proven to not care about its employees. DHL is at least taking better care of the AStar guys. Continuing the same old tactics will produce the same old results. Besides, it was DHL that promised the money in the congressional hearings last year.
Point taken. Don't take my comments as a dig at you guys either. My point is more that 1224 is trying a different route more because that is where the promise of severence originated and DHL is probably the only one that can force ABX to give up on withholding the severence. Personally, I support whatever efforts that may be effective. The letters from Washington to ABX certainly did nothing to help. Maybe this route will. Got nothing to lose.
