    Teamster as well.

    My insurance medical and dental is 100% free no deductible. We also have the 30k life insurance.

    My dues are 70 dollars a month.

    Ours is no deductibles as well, but the company insisted on a co pay on the premium or it wouldnt up its pension contributions. oh well, its still betterthan any of the other companies around..

    You can’t win them all.

    Our pension isn’t that good so that’s my downside on the benefits. The company puts money in a 401k for us though to make up for it I guess.

    It varies alot. My last company I paid maybe $30 per month for single. One company I looked at charged almost $400 per month for a high-deductable HSA.

    Trucking companies will tell you what their insurance costs. You won't be charged the average amount. You will be charged what that company charges.

    You work for ups? I know they bought out their pension. I hope we can do the same one day.
