    Wondering if any Denver mechanics on here can fill me in on your benefits, pay, pay scale progression, and what Union you're with. I'm thinking of trying to make the move to Colorado

    If you research transfers, like I'm doing now, it's pretty difficult . I'm a Denver feeder driver. Mechanics make same hourly as drivers. Plus .25 cents more an hour "tool allowance ". Some how Denver got lumped into central states Union. Every teamster company in Colorado is western states. Ups bought us out of central states pension in 2007. So we have a UPS pension. Oh, btw, we make like 33.70 or something an hour. Also mechanics get zero overtime. Anything over 30 min. A week has to be approved by supervisor.

    Ok so I'm pretty new to the company how safe is the ups pension compared to teamsters or IAM from what I understand central states pension isn't doing so good right now

    Of the three the UPS pension is the safest by far.

    Ok and because Denver is ups pension is the ups 401k also available to them? Or is it a different 401k

    Does UPS have their own 401k? The one I have is the Teamster UPS plan.

    Well from what I was told UPS has its own 401k plan. Where I'm at the mechanics go with the IAM 401k plan, the drivers go with the teamsters one, and any non union employees are offered the UPS 401k

    I wonder if that is the management/non-union hourly plan?

    Yeah I'm assuming so. So I'm wondering if that same one would be allowed to every employee in Denver or union employees still use the teamsters plan

    Teamster hourlies would use the Teamster plan. I don't know about the mechanics.

    I'm a Denver feeder driver. We did buy out of the central states pension. We have the UPS pension. Overseen by union. As part of our benefit package that has stock purchase program, short term long term disability, we have a 401k. Zero company match. Just like any other 401k. they take it right out of your check every week. Also, sounds like throughout the country there's different job classifications for union jobs . At Denver , all hub, maintenance, mechanics, drivers. Are Union hourly Teamsters.
