UPS Full-Time Pension Plan Has Website

March 25, 2011: For three years 44,000 full-time UPS workers in the Central and Southern regions and the Carolinas have been in a pension plan which is so secretive that it didn’t even have a website. Now it does.

UPSers formerly in the Central States plan can now go here and, by using their company ID #, access their own pension information on this company-run site. That’s an improvement.

The plan is still highly secretive, with no financial reports for members.

But we do know it is the cheapest pension plan which full-time UPSers participate in. If a UPS Teamster takes a leave from UPS to work for the union, the union pays UPS just $25 per day to cover the cost of this plan. But in the East and West and Chicago, and in other pension plans, UPS pays at least $60 per day toward UPSers pensions.

And UPS Teamsters in the West, in New York, in New England, Washington D.C. and elsewhere get better pensions.

Hoffa Refuses to Hold Executive Board Meetings

This is in direct violation of the Teamster Constitution, which specifically requires that the Board meet once in every quarter.
