They are doing the pension still it's a portable pension now. I've only been with the company 5yrs now so 5 more to top out. But from what I've been hearing from senior guys is that the pension is not good at all anymore. So that's why I'm considering ups cartage now. Have you heard what he's getting from his pension now?
Yea just a tough decision to make leaving the company after 5yrs to go to another which I don't know much about. I'm just looking for a better pension and benefits. I'm looking long term which would be better for me.He hasn’t said but it must not be enough to live on. He came to Usps because he has a lot of military time he bought back so he’ll have another pension. Better than nothing I guess, though.

Yepp that's all true, I'm only 30 so I have a ways to go. Shame I hope to good I'll still be driving but I know these self driving cars are coming out fast hopefully someone can stop it from us losing jobs millions of jobs that is.Hard to say but depending on how old you are, who’s to say where the pension/benefits will be in 25 years? Other thing that scares me is that you know UPS will be a pioneer once driverless technology really hits. I guarantee they’ll be one of the first companies getting it followed by FedEx.
Who knows though.
UPS pay rates are in the contract. Find the contract and then the supplement for the region you are considering and you can answer your own questions.
