Welcome To The Fed Up Home Page!

When working at FedEx has irrefutably, undeniably become the pits!!

You are visitor number LinKo since 8/16/97
This site is dedicated entirely to the premise that fair play should be enjoyed by ALL parties in the work place. Since FedEx has produced videotapes, coached managers, funded lobbyists and imposed arbitrary policies to keep its tens of thousands of "at will" employees isolated and under tight control, this web site was created to, albeit in a very small way, put some weight on the other end of the scale.

Assimilation is inevitable! GFTs are futile! Preparation is irrelevant!
