this is not the best contract for the teamsters in the central conference. over the life of this contract ups will put about $27,040.00 increase in to the health & welfare fund per full time worker. for this increase most of the regions are getting a increase in pensions pay out rates. some are $3,600 at 30 years at the end of this contract. the centeral region will not get any increase, why is this??? the union has said that they will sign a side agrement with ups not do rase the pension pay out rates, & make the central region pension plan more like the western region plan. if this is so why was there no information about this with the balot that they sent out to the members. the members should see what they are voting for. why would the union single out one pension plan this way. is the central region plan in trouble, if so they have not said so!!!! why sould one teamster get a beter pension that another one , when this is a national contract,& ups payes the same into all of this plans???
