This is why a lot of us are voting no on this contract. 25 and out at any age $2,000 25 and 57 years of age $2,500 plus $100 for each year of service 30 and out at any age 3,900 at any age after Jan. 2020 35 and out is $4,300 after Jan.2020. Anybody that votes yes to this contract is accepting a $1900 dollar discrepancy for 5 years of seniority. If you became a full timer at 21 and retire at 51 you get $3900 with a longer life expectancy than a 57 year old that retires with 25 F/T years and only gets $2500. Not to mention any F/T that retires before 57 and only gets $2,000.
