We recently had a 22.3 retire and mgt is in the process of re-classifying the job before putting it up for bid. According to the sort manager, the job will be preload, EAMs and air driver. The hours and pay rate have not been established but our BA estimates that it will be about a $5-$6/hr pay cut, which would put it right around $27-$28/hr. He also said that the pension contributions are the same and that taking the job would have no impact on my monthly pension amount. 27 years in and the injuries, both on and off the job, are starting to take their toll. It is also getting harder to motivate myself to get up and go to work each day, especially during the winter. I am set to retire on 7/1/18 and my projected last day of work will be on or about 5/1/18. I am leaning toward taking the job but would like to hear what others have to say. Please note that I don't make decisions such as this based upon the comments of strangers on an anonymous Internet chat forum but am hoping that someone may mention something that I may have either overlooked or not yet thought of. Thank for you keeping your comments on topic.
