We have had to start telling customers we will ship it overnight but there is no guarantee it will actually be there overnight. UPS and FedEx are both failing to fulfill overnight about 30% of the time.

FedEx pilots are union. I imagine UPS pilots are, too.

Right when Sloe* tried, quite unsuccessfully, to change the news narrative from the total incompetence surrounding the botched Afghan withdrawal to some other MUH 'RONA narrative.

Keeps getting better. Seems Seattle may be firing as many 400 more Cops due to the jab mandate. They've already lost as many as 350 with the defund idiocy, now this. Another truly lovely city on the brink of total collapse and lawlessness and outright anarchy.

Well, in fairness there was a pretty significant storm system over much of the mid-Atlantic.

Yup. Same with the two day ground. But only if the plane arrives first.

Glad the adults are back in charge.

Up here in N central AR, UPS and Fedex had to rent Ryder trucks because they had a truck shortage due to the heavy increase. Amazon drivers will use their own vehicles if they own a covered truck.

And this was before all of this current craziness.

A radio or talk show head personality, don't remember who, believed this is the revolution because of the walkout against the mandates. Parents taking a stand against crt, etc...could be right.

RE: Massive ‘call in sick’ leaves SouthWest teetering as Union is against mandatory vaxx
Every Republican Governor should do this.

Greg Abbott Defies Joe Biden and Throws Southwest Airlines a Lifeline


Quote:Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has made another move against nonsensical COVID policies. Today, he signed an executive order banning vaccine mandates by any entity in the state. This would hit corporations that have begun to follow federal guidelines to mandate vaccines for all their employees. And though an official rule from OSHA has yet to materialize as threatened, Abbott’s move is in direct defiance of Joe Biden.



This comes in the midst of a meltdown happening at Southwest Airlines over a coming vaccine mandate in November. Reports continue to indicate that employees of the Texas-based air carrier are using sick days in anticipation of being fired for not conforming to the mandate. That has left thousands of flights canceled over the last several days, and while Southwest Airlines has blamed weather and ATC issues, those “issues” have not affected any other airline. Clearly, the issue is internal.

Given that, perhaps this move by Abbott is actually a lifeline worked out via back channels? Southwest Airlines, which has already faced a lawsuit over the mandate, can now claim their hands are tied and lift the requirements. That gets air and maintenance crews back to work — while allowing the airline to somewhat save face for its terrible decision to follow Joe Biden’s lead.

We’ll have to wait and see how this shakes out. Southwest Airlines could decide to simply ignore the directive or to fight it in court, at which point their position would be clearly staked and the fight would escalate. They’d certainly pay a large consumer and employee price for such a move, but if they want to be that stupid, it’s their company. I doubt they go that route, though.

For Abbott’s part, Republican governors continue to lead the fight against COVID tyranny. Without them holding the line, who knows where we’d be as a nation. These mandates are ridiculous from a standpoint of liberty but are also completely unnecessary from a scientific standpoint. Everyone spreads COVID. There is no need to “protect” vaccinated employees from their unvaccinated counterparts via force.

Abbott’s order is already eliciting gnashing of teeth from the left, and that’s as good a sign as any that it was the right move.
