FedEx Pilots Respond to Fiscal Second-Quarter Earnings

MEMPHIS—The FedEx pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), have responded to the Company’s second-quarter financials. Capt. Billy Wilson, chair of the FedEx ALPA Master Executive Council, issued the following statement in response:

“While FedEx may have missed on financial analysts’ expectations during yesterday’s earnings announcement, it is imperative that FedEx not miss on the expectations of FedEx pilots during their resumption of contract negotiations. These pilots are critical to the success of the corporation and delivering ‘the world on time.’ FedEx pilots have delivered above and beyond expectations, yet our management refuses to acknowledge the value we bring to FedEx. It’s time for management to bring a suitable economic offer to the table.”

Founded in 1931, ALPA is the largest airline pilot union in the world and represents more than 77,000 pilots at 43 U.S. and Canadian airlines. Visit or follow us on Twitter @ALPAPilots.
