When I see that other companies in the pension (Central States) are wanting out too I can't help but wonder if it might actually be the best thing for us at UPS as well. It seems only the die hard Teamsters are the ones opposed to it. I guess it's easier for me to see the writing on the wall since I'm not blinded by loyalty to the IBT. I am by no means a "Company Man either. I'm just in favor of what seems to be the better choice. I'm all for solidarity but in this case it just seems better for us in the long run to accept this. Unless something better presents itself.
