    I don't get how someone who is dedicated and a hard worker (not to mention devilishly good looking) could cause a whole industry to go backwards. Even my good looks are THAT stunning.

    I wouldn't trust the international to represent us under the best of circumstances. Look what they did to ABF.

    Wow this a quote from the YRC board !!! This is what $$ 180,000 of your hard earned bucks will get you!! Now that is some 5 star representation !!! More quotes to follow from your teamster brothers !

    Ok, we get it. You don't want to better yourself and do better for your family...stay stagnant.

    No I want to feed my family and if this goes through and NCT holds the line because they can't afford to pay any more what are you gonna do ? Let me tell you what the teamsters will want to do. STRIKE AND OR A WORK SLOW DOWN. Do you know what happens then genius ?? CUSTOMERS GO AWAY AND DONT COME BACK. So yea I want better and it will come but most of all I want to keep the lights & heat on and food on the table. And the teamsters can't guarantee a raise or pension or come to think if it they can't guarantee crap.

    Like I don't want a better life? Keep your lights and heat on and food on the table....I want more then food or lights. I deserve a vacation after all the years I put in. I want my wife to be secure after I'm gone. You're not guaranteed anything with NCT. But that's ok with you guys...not me I want a better life.

    f you are among the few who still have a traditional defined-benefit pension plan we wish you luck. In the coming months your employer—as part of an effort to “de-risk” the plan—is likely going to offer you a lump-sum payout, an annuity, or freeze the plan.

    You cant freeze a 401 K !!

    That's their union you are quoting. THEIR not YOUR union. ABF has their own union. Different contract different company. Railroad workers are also teamsters. Your not quoting them.

    I'm about fairness. I also am very critical about the IBT.... BUUUT I'm honest and fair about my views.
    I don't like blanket pro company or union propaganda. Maybe your fellow workers see a need for a contract.
    Darksky what is the reason you don't want this ? Not because of YRCW or ABF.
    Those are different unions and companies. What's the reason for your company. Your union.

    Let's get this straight I am anti anything that will put me and a whole lot of other people out of work. Here is another quote from a YRC driver. Tell me again why I want to join this sinking ship?????


    I was told recently by a teamster brother in a drivers room that he had heard the projection for our pension to run out of money Is during 2026. I was just wondering if anyone else had heard anything on this matter? I am sure it is just a guesstimate, but sometimes those can be pretty close. I am planning on retiring around 2025 so this would be bad timing!

    Tell me again why I should join ? For what to help bail out a failing pension plan with my hard earned cash !!! It makes no sense people !!


    my pension fund froze me with 4 months need for 25 and out, about 18 months later offered to let me buy out at around 30k, that i would pay to collect my 25 year 2500. now i approach 30 years, of course the 30 and out is gone, and i am missing the 2years yrc did not pay. my pension at 30 years involves penalties now and i would get 2122 out of 2960 dollars, because i am not 57.
    my new multiplier is 9.75-nine dollars seventy five cents. this multiplier will be heavily penalized unless i go to at least 62.
    WHEN I STARTED I WAS PROMISED A 30 AND OUT, AND SHORTLY THEREAFTER A 25 AND OUT. I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN LONG ENOUGH TO BE VESTED IF I KNEW WHAT I KNEW NOW.
    PAY AND VACATION CUTS JUST RUB SALT IN THE WOUND.
