Union companies have not exactly been flourishing. There aren't many young workers who would get little in a split so you could get a million dollars. Assuming CSPF unrealistic mortality tables and rates of returns the pension fund is fully funded at $36,000,000,000 dollars. Divided by 400,000 teamsters with a stake and you would only get $90,000. 360,000/4 = $90,000. If CSPF had to use single employer pension funds assumed rate of return of 4% the pension fund would need $144,000,000,000 to be fully funded. $360,000 a piece. The Ponzi scheme worked when the 50 biggest carriers were still in business. Now there is one ABF, with YRC limping along. Crooked Wall Street didn't steal the pension fund the need to make 8% a year, every year, killed the pension fund.
