    This Teamster building supply road driver pays dues..

    and gets good union paid miles,also health care but because he's an afilliated Teamster he doesn't get any union pension.
    He's been driving for his company 12 years.

    He told me he's bought houses,and paid off the mortgages,and made other investments that when he's ready to retire,with social security he'll also have $6000.00 a month from his investments,seeing he won't be receiving a union pension.

    I'm sure he is leaving out a lot of his story?

    I only had a short time to talk to him at a Home Dumpster Store loading dock.

    He said he lived,and worked out of N.J.,with exclusive rights of his company only supplying Home Depots,and 84 lumber stores on the east coast.

    I'd think he'd know after 12 years were he stood with his union afilliate,but he claimed he didn't know what it was all about.

    Who knows?
    Thats why I asked about it for myself of you truckingboard posters,just another union question.
    Shifterknobs answers sounds good to me.

    If this drivers set up to retire like he says he's no dummy.

    Huh... interesting. I'm not in a RTW state, so how they handle things are different, I guess.

    Are you sure about the union having to represent them for disciplinary and grievance issues, though? That sounds odd to me. Of course, it would be par for the course with the trend in labor laws..

    ShifterKnob,
    I may be wrong on this, but I'm basing what I'm saying on a buddy's experiences. He works for USPS(Postal Service), and they are all treated as if they worked in a right-to-work state regardless of what state they are in because they are ran by the federal government. He tells me that all their drivers have a choice whether they want to be in the union or not. If they choose not to, they don't pay dues, but the union still has to represent them. It could be different in each of the right-to-work states because of their individual laws, but I think we are both on the right track thinking he is from a right-to-work state.

    Hobo,
    Seeing as how the Teamsters are sending in their top UPS contract negotiator AND their top LTL freight contract negotiator from Washington, DC to negotiate this contract, I'd have to say you are right on the money. I think it is going to be an excellent contract that will please most if not all of us. Not only that, it will benefit the other LTL drivers the next time they negotiate their contract.
