It my mind it seems impossible that I'll make it to retirement doing this job, at least with my health and family fully intact. On the other hand, I know how bad it is out there without a union to have your back.

What're some other good union jobs that you know of, regardless of whether they're within or without UPS and the Teamsters?

Why do you think it’s impossible?

Airlines, railroad, gas & oil, power utility, mechanic and government all have their benefits.
I'm in one of the lowest union density RTW states, so unfortunately a couple of these don't even apply here. Govt employees aren't even allowed to collectively bargain.

Just about any union job as a new hire is going kick the crap out of you. If you cannot physically do your current job because of chronic pain or an ongoing illness, it's possible you could get an ADA accommodation for light duty in the hub. Is feeders an option for you?
