    For the pension, is there any benefit to waiting until the next contract is in place in 2018 before quitting? I am part time and have 9 years of service.

    The next contract does not begin until 8/1/18. If you wait that long you may as well stay.

    Part of me wonders if the pension will be totally bust by the time I retire (20 years..)
     
  5. Part time, you should be good.

    I would be more concerned about still being a PTer when you retire.

    Why is this?

    There could be many reasons but I think the primary one would be lack of personal ambition.

    Yes, there are several PTers in my center that have 20+ years. They have good full time jobs to go along with UPS. Their "personal ambition" is strong enough to work 2 jobs each and every day.

    Are you positive UPS is their only work?

    I can think of a few farmers at my small hub who'd disagree with your opinion.

    I am at over $33k for the first 6 months of this year working PT. I too wonder it there will be any improvements in the PT pension for me to stay or just hang it up now. I am guessing no improvements and maybe a hit on FT pensions in the next contract.

    You are a PT employee by title only.

    You knew PT jr qualified FT package car driver last week. Still asking me for advice but I bet that will stop soon.

    A friend of mine has been a part timer in our HUB for over 20 years. He has a house and a car that are paid off and lives alone, never married. So it can't be that bad. His advantage is that if he wants to work 40 hours, he can. If he doesn't, he doesn't.
