    My husband is part-time, works twilight shift under pre-load do I get the short-term disability started? He broke his foot and will be out 6-8 weeks.

    The advantage of a withdrawal card is you won't owe dues for the months you aren't working and you won't have to pay initiation again when you return to work. It really doesn't affect seniority. A withdrawal card is for when you quit a job not sure if you are coming back to that same job or to another Teamster job, not for a disability leave.

    Dirt bike?,ATV, skateboard? ----just curious. Good luck getting short term disability. Lean times ahead.

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Get Aflac or some type of disability insurance to make up the gap in pay. I don't get it why more people on this job don't get disability insurance with the income we make. Don't get it at all to protect your family with mortgage and everything.

    yes file a withdrawl card immediately. No you don't lose seniority

    Withdrawl cards are for disability, workers comp and short and long term disability. Our "team care" is so messed up. Your out a couple weeks and they pull your insurance. What sucks it they don't even tell you. Then after a few months you have so many medical bills. Then when you get back to work, your paying union dues for 6 months
