We all know unions are business they do not care what you get or lose, believe me I was close inside as treasurer. Our job was get you to believe you will get best. Now that we have union in Boston we lost more than we gained. Granted, insurance for most is upgrade. I haven't used insurance except for routine exams in 27 years and I paid minimal fee. Now my union dues are higher than what I was paying for insurance. Our losses were $500 month if we retire early, my plan, loss short term and long term insurance, loss OT on holidays and strong rumor on how vacations will be selected. We were sold down river by BV, TA, and SA. Three amigos were taken care of by union, BV cutting best deal. How can BV work for union and come back full seniority but driver in domicile yard go bottom is he has desire change yards. I will be first say I made mistake of voting union. My opinion and entitled to express.

My experience in KC is opposite of what yours is, we came out way ahead. Dues =$60/month and the first contract we signed was $90/wk increase in pay and beginning next year our insurance will drop by $70/wk. We still have the same short/long term disability as before. I’m guessing you went into a union pension plan? We stayed in the 401k in our contract, most of our drivers haven’t been here long enough to have been in the Sysco pension plan before it was frozen but those of us who have still have the benefits we earned including the $500/month early retirement option if we otherwise qualify.

There's an old saying. If you have a boss you need a union. It's as true now as it was 80 years ago.
