    Just got a letter this week about the UPS non union retirement plan. Glad i been here for a while.(I Think) Did anyone ever hear about his before this letter? What do the employees around the country think? Let's hear it.

    Dont relax yet!!! Its only a matter of time before they touch the pensions of people like us who have been around for awhile. When the amount of managment people on the new plan becomes over 50 percent of all managment people, UPS will be allowed to mess with the old pension and change it.(Thats why there is a ? next to my name) The letter was stupid. Its states that the reason for the change is because younger people want a more portable retirement package and that the new package will help attract new managment people. Wouldnt you rather work for a place that had such a great retirement package that you would never consider working anywhere else?

    I agree 100%. I told some fellow employees back in the fall of 2006 or was it 2005 when Conway changed thier plan to somthing similer to this. Everybody follows the lead when there is change. I expect it to change again in a couple of years. That reason they give for this is crazy. I assume that they do not have to pay any medical benefits to these employees . That is the next move I think will happen, no employee retirement medical. It is getting there now with the cost over $400 per person. Again I agree with you 55andout. Anyone else care to comment?

    So, the new non-union retirement is for people born after 1980 or something. It basically is set up where it is up to an employee to decide what their retirement is going to be. So, its going to be a 401k based retirement. Eventually, individuals under this plan will be able to get up to something like a 6% match on their 401k contributions. Personally, I haven't done the calculations to determine how this is going to work for me in the long haul (comparison to old pension), but I understand why it has to be done, understand that it is the direction that almost all companies are going...

    We had a meeting on this sometime last year, and it goes to 6% .....but they also mentioned something like 9% contribution to a company retirement, they said it could be moved from company to company so i guess it woul have ot be some form of IRA?

    I'm a former Con-way employee. Looks like you all are going down the same road we went down. Get ready to take it. You will have all your good things go away 1 step at a time. Then they will do something to please you that doesn't cost them any $$$ like letting you wear jeans to work. Every reason they give you is pure BS and you will have to eat that **** sandwich every time they stick it in you.

    Then you will do 'lean and agile' training - which at first seems like a waste of time. But then you will go thru a reduction in force, where the worst workers and all management will remain.

    You will be required to be on-call and available more than in the past, also with no or reduced compensation.

    This is how management treats its employees so they can move up the ladder.

    My advise is to not get upset and not worry about it. Just play along and save your money. You should play the backstabbing game just like they do. Send dirt about your manager to whoever would use it against him. Trust me - don't ever try to be loyal and do the right thing. It will only get you screwed.
