Thanks Cheryl for posting the article from the St. Louis Today concerning the Central States pension fund. That's what IMO makes Browncafe a must see for "ALL" UPSers. Speaking of Central States, I'm hearing a number of lawsuits are being or have been filed challenging the new retirement work rules. I've heard Georgia and North Carolina mentioned by name and that they may go class action. What I've heard is via the Feeder Driver pipeline so nothing from official sources but has anyone else heard anything? Anything official? I think it is time we members turn up the heat on the Teamster's union to run an honest and above board pension system. Also I hear Congress is looking at pension reform and although I "HATE" the Federal govt's involvement in my life I say we use this to our advantage. Drop a line to your Senator and Congressman about your concern over irregularities in Central States and also CC a copy to Hoffa. With IBT's current effort to wiggle out of Fed oversight this is the last thing they want so why not take advantage of it. UPS stepped up to the plate on the recent contract so now it is time we members stepped up to the plate also. JMO.
