    Of course not (reading), it's in direct contradiction to what is being said about the union. It actually is a good read, it provides for a fact based argument and eliminates the emotion.

    besides.....if anyone reads it will they understand where this (the teamsters) is actually at or just continue to live in fantasy land??

    Speaking of obama care
    ....i used to pay $ 186 a week for healthcare insurance at my company and now with obamacare i pay $ 392 a month and every American is entitled to this affordable healthcare insurance ...and fact is : healthcare insurance companies will fight this tooth& nail , because they know if they don't match or compete with this , they loose .....they love capitalism until it doesn't go their way ......they didn't seem to mind it so much when the trucking industry had to do the very same thing ,when they deregulated frgt so by all means let every one know the real truth about obamacare with solid facts ......

    Yeah ,i still work for the company ,just couldn't afford to pay for my bosses healthcare premiums along with my own family coverage premiums ....see the insurance company cuts the big wigs a deal on their healthcare while we pay though the nose for our healthcare .....that's the way it is at alot of companies

    many ltl carriers are getting that expensive, i was told that the closest to my plan at conway would cost me 103 a week, OD is up to 96 a week, Fedex is also in the same ballpark, as is R & L....

    we got out of the pension a few years ago, but we had a 401k already. now the company just puts the money in our 401k instead of the pension found.

    we also got a nice chunck of money from the company for getting out of the pension. i am still locked into a pension payment. i think things will work out fine for me when i retire.

    pension, 401k, discounted company stock, SS, and a little investment on the side.

    UPS freight is not connected to the central states fund. A driver told me that they opted out of that fund when UPS bought out overnite. UPS might be the most savvy union company out there. Their employees seem to know that the pension system won't sustain. Management must know it too. How's that for irony? labor and management agreeing on unsustainable retirement. Maybe there is hope for America!
