    How is Teamcare compared to the Teamsters Western Region and Local 177 Health Care Plan?

    The real question is how will teamcares 25 months of reserves compare to a fund that will be lucky to break even. I predict next contract both the 177 and the one out west ask to join teamcare.

    Yep. Pay your $20 co-pay and think to yourself, "this free insurance is pretty good, considering the guy next to me in the waiting room is paying a premium for less coverage."

    It's funny how others feel so entitled to so much more. Things can never change.

    Everyone wants something to be :censored2: off about. Shelling out a couple dollars to see the doctor for an upper respiratory infection while holding down a $37 an hour job is pretty mild when, some folks would be happy to drop some fries into a vat of boiling grease for minimum wage.

    It won't affect us at all until just after the General Election in 2016.

    This is what we enjoy in the company plan.
    It won't be this way for long in Teamcare, I fear.
    It will all go swimmingly until the General Election in 2016.
    Then the annual deductible kicks in the next year, and there it goes...

    Again, I don't understand this guilt trip mentality?
    I work very hard for a company who is at the top the their game.
    I expect, through collective bargaining, to reap my "fair share".

    Full time drivers will be damn close by the end of OUR new contract.

    Lost any sleep that, I and thousands like me, haven't reaped what you're used to in the company plan?

    We work hard too?

    I also fear, what the future may bring. Don't put yourself on a pedestal. We're in this together, remember?

    Make no mistake, I wanted you and the thousands like you, to have what I have and it could have happened.
    Unlike you and thousands like you, I never try to bring myself up by bringing someone else down.
    That my friend is no pedestal.

    You might have read too much into what I said. That was not a put down towards part timers.

    Whether you like it or not, it's OUR contract.

    I checked out that site last night (myteamcare), and I've got to be honest, the coverage doesn't sound too bad at all.

    Teamcare isn't bad, just not as good as the plan many people already had. And Teamcare is cheaper at first but increases in cost in later years, so there is concern what will happen as more time passes.
