The reality of this contract is simple to me. The reason the contract is full of concessions and give backs is because the only issue that was important to the Union was getting our Health Care. The Central States non profit health plan was sustainable until Obama Care. As Obama Care kicks in non profit plans like Central States will be unsustainable. This is a quote from a letter sent to the Democratic Party signed by three Unions, one being the Teamsters Union, Jimmy Hoffa. If you were wondering why this contract favors the Company it is simple. The Union wants and needs our participation in this non profit plan to keep this plan sustainable until Legislation can be passed to protect us from ObamaCare and if it doesn't by having us in the plan will lengthen the amount of time until the plan becomes unsustainable. In addition without legislation as the plan becomes to falter premiums will be increased with additional co-pays and your minimum age to retire with benefits will increase. Go ahead and google, Union letter to Democratic party about ObamaCare, if you dont believe me. We are being duped and i don't appreciate it!
