    To be clear, the pension was frozen. I retired about 4 years ago. I'm getting my pension. When they froze the pension, I started putting more into my 401(k), and Con-Way upped the match for a while, so I'm doing OK. I didn't retire until I was eligible for Medicare, so health care is OK too.

    My advice to you is don't depend on your employer or the government to fund your retirement. Save and invest.

    Never been in the military. I put a long summer in at UPS many years ago. It was hell.

    By frozen. What do you mean ? Are you getting the full value ? For what period of time does your benefit extend ? Did you ask all the questions or just assume without knowing ?

    Did hear FedEx is up for a big raise. Those guys sound pretty happy about it.

    Got word from a FedEx driver on Friday that it was $1.00 and went into effect on Friday.

    They have geographically wages. So it's pretty well impossible to say one thing across the board for them. The ones I spoke to were pleased to be getting raises and happy they didn't go cheap and only give 25 cents or some :shit: .

    We have a geographical wage and when we got our raise it was the same across the board.

    Not the same animal. We have a handful of wages. 4 ? Not sure. They have different wages for each and every terminal. At least that is how it is explained to me. And from what I have heard some got 75 cents an hour. Others got a dollar. And of course, this is all word of mouth. Around here they make plenty more than we do and don't mind reminding us of it.

    Yes, not everyone gets the same raise. The company only pays what they have to, market value.

    The CRST raise is very deceiving,H. It comes down to years with company, and the raise is spread out over 4-5 years. Their just trying another gimmick to slow down turnover....

    Gimmicks abound throughout the industry but real compensation gains are meager at best.

    By "frozen" I mean that the company stopped contributing to it, but the money already in the account stayed there.

    I am getting full value, for the rest of my life (and my wife's, if she outlives me).

    I never assume without knowing.
