Federal Express Corporation makes announcement.

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 20, 1995--Federal Express Corporation responded today to the press release distributed earlier by the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA).

"ALPA's public portrayal of the company's position in the discussions with the National Mediation board violates the non-disclosure agreement reached by the parties about these discussions last week," said Ted Weise, senior vice president of Air Operations for Federal Express. "The process ALPA proposed concerning a third party facilitator relied heavily on each side keeping certain information confidential. By violating the non-disclosure agreement, ALPA has just confirmed one of the concerns that led to the company's rejection of their proposal."

The company has consistently sought to resolve this matter in negotiations between the parties. FedEx originally proposed having one outside expert expeditiously help the parties resolve the single largest issue that separates them -- the costing differences in the retirement and insurance area. It is unrealistic to suggest that outsiders could do a better job than the parties at formulating a balanced and effective set of work rules for the extremely complex pilot environment in which the company operates.

Federal Express operations have continued normally throughout the "self-help" period, which began November 25. Aside from some weather problems encountered this week, the company has maintained outstanding service levels during its busiest season of the year. Flight operations have remained fully staffed throughout the holiday period as hundreds of pilots have volunteered to fly extra trips.
