    That's the main issue here.

    Not eligible for retiree medical until age 55.

    That's an assumption but I agree with you.
    UPS needed cash for acquisitions to continue to increase revenue and profit.
    The strike accelerated the progression towards public.
    The only difference was the timing.
    Working for a publicly traded company tends to suck in general.

    It used to be that we would have to take a ride down to the pension fund office in Syracuse (NY) to start the retirement process. Within the past 5 years that has no longer been the case-----everything can be done through e-mail, US Mail or over the phone. Part of our retirement application packet is the application for retiree medical benefits.

    Family? I started in 1981. It was always us vs. them(mgt.). Then and now.

    Maybe it was a family atmosphere in management. Down in the trenches maybe not so much.

    For some ... not for all!
    Some places like Chicago, New York, New Jersey are s:censored2:tholes and that's the nature of big cities.

    That's exactly what my wife and I did last week. I will take all of my vacation and receive my first retirement check April 1st, 2020
