    Hey everyone im new here and pretty much new to being a driver.
    I worked the twilight shift for 2.5 years before going driving. Ive been driving for almost a year now.

    So as soon as i stepped into the position i here all this stuff about the pension and money and all this other stuff. I also here a lot of conflicting "opinions or Facts" from drivers shop stewards and anyone else who thinks they know it all.

    What i want to know is what happened with the teamsters and the money?
    When did this all start to go bad?
    I read a lot about the "central states" what is that all about?
    What is going on with the new contract coming up?
    I Also asked in another thread about the 401(K) matching and was told there is no match at all, is this true?

    Im sure theres some other new people on here with similar questions and stuff so any general knowledge about this whole situation would be great guys.

    Thanks A lot

    Thanks a al ot for the response, i happen to like the job for the most part, the occasional bad neighborhood is really the worst of my problems at the moment i think.
    Its just that you here so much about the good part of the job, the bad seems to stay hidden.
    Ill go poke around and see what i dig up thanks a lot
