    I'm pretty sure (someone please correct if wrong) that UPSF has a really good NO COST family option. They do pay $135/mo if they choose the "super premium" family plan. Both plans significantly better than any FXFE plan. Read the contract if you like: UPS Freight Teamster Contract PDF

    I'm guessing he means 3 different terminals. Where I'm located we have 3 by terminals right by each other.
    I don't know for sure but I'm pretty sure I'm going to the same meeting this afternoon.

    Man I HATE to hear that, but i think we all understand. I wish you could find someone to talk to and see if there is activity in your center. If there is not, someone (anyone?) should/could get the ball rolling. DC office can point to local contact (202) 624-6800.

    Since you ARE leaving. Before you go, could you tell us what center you are out of? Could help others step up and do something, if they are not already. Good luck Brother, at least you're getting out quick before you have much to loose. You are a smart guy.

    Hay don't quite be pro active in the union not scared don't run away. Remember once you sign a card this is your first step You are protected by federal government So have fun watch them being nice watch them squirm.

    It's not about the pay. The majority are happy with how much we make. We are treated like **** and we want protection.

    Did POS hold their first meeting yet? NHS is having their second. It would be nice to have POS, NHS, and HGR vote around the same time. My worry is that the will route freight around one of us if we all don't go union.

    I think it's marvelous you all are trying to join the labor movement.All the workers in this country should rise up.Its not each other against each other here.With numbers comes power and strength in unity.
