    If UPS was to offer a buyout, what $ amount would pesuade you to make this your last week? Would it be a flat amount, or a specific $ amount for each year on the payroll?
    I am not really too sure myself.

    Give me 500k. One time, AFTER taxes. Union can keep pension. Don't need insurance from UPS.

    What if they offered a +2-3 years on the pension for everyone with 30+ years. How many people of you would take that?

    Central States would never offer a buyout.
    And UPS doesn't control the FT pension plan.

    Could ups not offer a one time payment 50k or something for everyone that retires in the next 6 months or something like that?

    Sure but only those who would otherwise be eligible to retire would start receiving their pension payments.

    Yeah of course but how many would take the buyout and say good I can pay off my house and vehicles or whatever with that way I can retire. And please don't act like we don't all know 35+ year employees who still have plenty of debt.

    There was a 30+ year driver here a while ago who continued to work as he was helping his kid pay for college. He took exception when I told him that he needed to think about himself first and that his kid should pay his own way through school.

    Hell no, I'm barely starting my career here. The amount of money I would demand for a buyout, UPS might as well put me to work.
