    why is it that we all have the same union, work for the same company but we all have different amounts of option days, sick days, it should be all the same

    Because as you gain seniority ... You gain more perks .

    Is that really a hard concept to understand .

    A first year driver should have 5 weeks vacation ? Or a 30 year driver should have 1 week ?

    We all get the same benefits. .. That is the most important

    Each region of the union has things their members want and are important to them. The members are asked to participate in the process by contacting their local union officials to let them know what is important to them not every where is the same.

    . No, we don't. Different conferences get different benefits

    Once those centers use their sick days they can be written up for missing here we don't have them and can call off 6 days in a 6 month period.

    No same company but each region is diffrent. Just like with the country. Same country but what is important to the people in each region vary wildly

    I don't think you can be written up for being sick. Of course some people use sick days as an extra weeks vacation.

    The difference in regions and even locals can be drastic.

    Drivers use sick days just to rest their bodies. I don't ever give them a reason why I need a day off even though I always have one

    so we all do the same job, pay 2.5 hr our wage to the union and get different bennies

    Some locals have less nads. That's why many work day after Thanksgiving for example.

    if everyone is getting more or less benefits, then why are we all paying 2.5 times our wage for union dues

    If we are all paying the same dues then why are members in one building getting better representation and preferential treatment over other buildings in the same local?

    Down south would be a good example of wages going further versus up north, dollar for dollar. To live the same lifestyle up north would cost more, meanwhile there's more smokers down south, so health coverage due to medical conditions that members suffer might be top on the list here. Different strokes for different folks.
