    If you have made the jump from full time/vested package driver to full time management, what happened to your Teamster pension. I have been told that I keep what I’ve earned (Approx 15-17 years) and that I get control over it once I leave the Union. Any similar experience?

    These are important questions to ask before you make the switch as I could totally lie to you and you’d based your decisions on that lie

    But then again, management will lie to you anyways so I guess it really doesn’t matter.
     
  3. You do know that management does not get a pension .

    If you earned 17 years pension credits and are now considering management you need to go for a mental evaluation while you still have good health insurance.

    You don't get control over it. When you reach whatever age yours start paying you get your monthly payment. It's a pension not a 401k

    Seriously ?


    If you are vested in a Teamster pension plan, you keep those earned years.

    You will start receiving a monthly benefit at age 65, or 67, maybe age 70.


    In no way, shape, or form....

    Do you get "control" over those monies if you move to management.

    With that much time in just transfer into a different union spot, even if it's part-time.
