Tried tagging link and it wouldn’t let me. Look up the article and you’ll see it involves UPSers along with YRC and other companies.

So is it true UPS current and retired will be losing part of their Pension? If so,where is the this Brotherhood the Teamsters speak of? How can UPS and the Teamsters justify some getting a great Pension and others losing their’s when we all work for the same Employer. Makes 0 sense..

They justify it with one word...."Autonomy".

One of the issues from the 1997 strike, was the company wanting a UPS

only pension. The "brotherhood" stood strong and rejected that idea.


The affected members in the Central States fund aren't complaining now....

In 1997 many other companies joined in the fight (FedEx, Post Office, truckers, and more) and even then UPS stood its ground for the longest time even with major news coverage. Unless something way bigger happens in the future, a "1997" will never happen again. Hoffa will make sure of that.

Oh really? FedEx didn't strike, the PO didn't strike, truckers didn't strike and more didn't strike.
UPS employees did, for a little more than two weeks, not the "longest time".
Were you alive in 1997, or did you read a book?

So.....that justifies making a ballot that wasn't returned to be counted as a "Yes Vote"???

Please explain that logic.

Only if you can explain why losing part of ones retirement income is still not enough incentive to return a ballot.
Apathy is now on steroids.

1. They are dead
2. They have alzheimer's
3. They aren't ambulatory
4. Out of date mailing list as a result of direct deposit.

That's 4 off of the top of my head,

....but how about staying on topic and address why a ballot that isn't returned is considered a to be a "Yes Vote", diluting the results of those who actually did vote?
