      ABF-NMFA Article 33, Sec. 4 - COLA


      MEMORANDUM

      TO: ALL LOCAL UNIONS SIGNATORY TO THE 2018 – 2023 ABF FREIGHT

      NATIONAL MASTER FREIGHT AGREEMENT

      FROM: John A. Murphy, National Freight Director

      DATE: May 25, 2022

      RE: ABF-NMFA Article 33, Sec. 4 - COLA

      Based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI-W) figures released February 10th, by the
      Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Teamster membership covered by the 2018 – 2023 ABF
      NMFA will be due a cost-of-living allowance per Article 33, Section 4 when the next
      scheduled hourly and mileage increase takes place on July 1, 2022.

      As you know, our members covered by this agreement are eligible for an annual COLA
      in 2022 that allows a one cent ($0.01) per hour and .25 mils per mile increase for every
      0.2-point increase in the index in excess of 3.5% and at least totaling $0.05. Reaching an
      index level of 276.296 in January 2022, the CPI-W increased 12.065 points above the
      January 2021 Index plus 3.5%, and that translates to the following COLA increases:

      $0.05 per hour
      1.250 cents per mile

      Please note these increases are in addition to the negotiated increases per the 2018 –
      2023 ABF NMFA settlement which are effective July 1, 2022:

      $0.50 per hour
      1.250 cents per mile

      Essentially, this means that hourly wages are scheduled to increase by $0.55 per hour
      and 2.500 cents per mile on July 1, 2022. The annual ABF COLA increase is contractually
      capped at $0.05 cents per hour. As previously indicated, however, qualified ABF workers
      have received a profit-sharing bonus this year in the amount of 3% of their 2021 W-2
      earnings.

      Please note this is the first wage COLA payable to our ABF freight members since 2006.

      Carhaul Contract Update - May 24, 2022

      May 24, 2022

      CARHAUL CONTRACT UPDATE:

      Members Vote Overwhelmingly to Authorize Strike;
      Negotiations Resume in Michigan

       

      Over the weekend, Carhaul Teamsters covered under the National Master Automobile
      Transporters Agreement (NMATA) voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike in the
      event no agreement is reached before June 1.


      “This overwhelming vote sends a clear message to the employers. They know we are
      serious. We won’t back down until we have secured the strongest national contract
      possible,” said Avral Thompson, Director of the Teamsters Carhaul Division and Co-
      Chair of the Teamsters National Automobile Transporters Industry Negotiating Com-
      mittee (TNATINC).


      The in-person strike authorization vote was conducted by local unions and ballots
      were tabulated yesterday. All members are instructed to continue working and report
      to work as normal until such time as officially instructed otherwise by the negotiating
      committee.


      Yesterday, the TNATINC resumed negotiations in Romulus, Mich. They are prepared to
      stay at the table until a tentative agreement is reached, or the contract expires.
      “The committee now has the ability to call a strike if we don’t reach a deal with the
      employers before next Tuesday’s deadline. As we have said from the beginning of ne-
      gotiations, we will not extend the contract,” Thompson said.


      The NMATA and its supplements cover thousands of Teamsters across the country
      and expires Tues., May 31 at midnight.


      The Teamsters Carhaul Division will continue to keep members informed in the
      days and weeks ahead. Stay tuned for more updates and visit our division page
      at www.teamster.org to learn more.

      CENTRAL STATES

      VOICES FOR PENSION SECURITY

      UPDATE TO OUR VOICES FOR PENSION SECURITY CAMPAIGN

      APRIL 5, 2022

      CENTRAL STATES PENSION FUND WILL SUBMIT APPLICATION TO PBGC FOR SPECIAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE IN APRIL

      On April 1, 2022, Central States Pension Fund became eligible to submit an application to the federal government for Special Financial Assistance (SFA) under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). The SFA program (sometimes referred to as the "Butch Lewis Act") was enacted into law under ARPA in March 2021, thanks in large part to years of tireless advocacy by participants of Central States and other troubled multiemployer pension plans. We expect to submit our application before the end of April.
      Upon receiving this assistance, our Fund will be in a much stronger financial position. The SFA is expected to allow Central States to remain solvent and continue paying all benefits through at least 2051, and likely longer.

      TIMING OF OUR SPECIAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE APPLICATION

      The federal Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) is tasked with overseeing the SFA program, and it estimates that about 200 plans will submit applications for assistance. To ensure the PBGC can efficiently process so many applications, the agency established a specific order in which different "priority qroups" of plans become eligible to apply.

      Central States is in priority group three, which puts our Fund in line after plans that are already insolvent, plans that are expected to become insolvent within one year of applying for assistance, and plans that reduced participants' benefits under the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act (MPRA).

      The PBGC selected April 1, 2022, as the date when our priority group is allowed to apply. However, we will not be able to apply immediately because the application must be based on the Fund's financial status at the end of the most recent calendar quarter, which is March 31. It will take some time to compile, audit and incorporate these latest quarterly figures into our SFA application. Again, we expect to submit our application before the end of April.

      WHAT HAPPENS NEXT ?

      We expect the Fund to receive payment of the Special Financial Assistance in one lump sum by the end of 2022, although there are a few factors that could affect this timeline.


      The PBGC has up to 120 days to review our application, so, we anticipate a decision from the PBGC in August. As of this writing, 36 plans have submitted applications— 10 have been approved and 26 are under review. Thus far, the PBGC has directed about one-half of the plans submitting an SFA application to withdraw their initial application and resubmit a corrected or amended version, based on specific guidance from the PBGC. This is understandable, considering that SFA applications are very complex and can run hundreds of pages in length. If the PBGC requests that a plan withdraw and resubmit its application, there may be some additional time required for the PBGC to complete its review, though not necessarily another 120 days.


      The PBGC has stated that it expects to make payments within 60 to 90 days of approving an SFA application. As of this writing, the PBGC has made all SFA payments within 35 days.

      ANTICIPATED SFA APPLICATION TIMELINE*

      Central States Submits Application PBGC renders decision on application within 120 days of submission PBGC delivers approved SFA payment to Central States in one lump sum.
      April 2022 August 2022 (expected) November 2022 (expected)

      *Based on PBGC approval of application 120 days after submission. Timeline may be extended if PBGC requests windrawal and resubmission of application.

      We will update Local Unions when Central States has submitted its SFA application. We plan to hold a town hall webinar to answer your questions. Updates will also be posted on our website at VoicesForPensionSecurity.com and on our American Rescue Plan Act recorded message hotline at 800-323-7640.

      Teamsters to Receive Bonus Pool at Yellow Operating Companies

      TEAMSTERS

      National Freight Industry Negotiating Committee

      MEMORANDUM

      TO: YRC Freight, Holland, New Penn and Reddaway Local Unions

      FROM: John A. Murphy, National Freight Director

      DATE: March 16, 2022

      RE: Teamsters to Receive Bonus Pool at Yellow Operating Companies

      Yellow has indicated that it is paying certain bonuses to various Company officers and/or executives. In the last agreement, TNFINC negotiated a "two for one" provision in the national agreement for executive bonuses. Specifically, for every dollar that gets paid in executive bonuses, qualified represented workers get two dollars put into a pool to split up. This year, the Teamster represented employees' pool is $9,879,434.00; with about 20,033 individual eligible members, each member will receive $493.16. The checks to members will likely go out within the week.

      YRCW-NMFA Article 33, Sec. 4 - COLA MEMO

      TEAMSTERS

      National Freight Industry Negotiating Committee

      MEMORANDUM

      TO: ALL LOCAL UNIONS SIGNATORY TO THE 2019 – 2024 YRCW NATIONAL MASTER FREIGHT AGREEMENT

      FROM: John A. Murphy, National Freight Director

      DATE: March 11, 2022

      RE: YRCW-NMFA Article 33, Sec. 4 - COLA

      Based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI-W) figures released February 10th, by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Teamster membership covered by the 2019 – 2024 YRCW NMFA will be due a cost-of-living allowance per Article 33, Section 4 when the next scheduled hourly and mileage increase takes place on April 1, 2022.

      As you know, our members covered by this agreement are eligible for an annual COLA in 2022 that allows a one cent ($0.01) per hour and .25 mils per mile increase for every 0.2-point increase in the index in excess of 3.5% and at least totaling $0.05. Reaching an index level of 276.296 in January 2022, the CPI-W increased 12.065 points above the January 2021 Index plus 3.5%, and that translates to the following COLA increases:

      $0.60 per hour

      1.500 cents per mile

      Please note these increases are in addition to the negotiated increases per the 2019 – 2024 YRCW NMFA settlement which are effective April 1, 2022:

      $0.40 per hour

      1.00 cents per mile

      Essentially, this means that hourly wages are scheduled to increase by $1.00 per hour and 2.500 cents per mile on April 1, 2022.

      Please note this is the first wage COLA payable to our Yellow freight members since 2006. The $0.60 cents payable on April 1, 2022, will be the largest annual increase our members have received since 1981 when the COLA paid 77 cents.

      The Board of Trustees has always been committed to providing the highest level of benefits under the Retiree Health Plan, while keeping contributions affordable for our retirees. After hearing from our Local Union partners and in keeping with that commitment, the Trustees are pleased to announce benefit improvements to the Retiree Health Plans without an increase to the retiree's monthly premium. Effective May 1, 2022, the Retiree Health Plans (Plan R4, R6, and FR) will include Dental and Vision benefits.

       

      DENTAL BENEFITS

      Effective May 1, 2022, the Retiree Health Plan will include dental benefits of $1,500 per covered person, per year.

      TeamCare has partnered with Humana Dental to offer TeamCare Dental - a network with over 337,000 providers that accept in-network negotiated discounts. TeamCare Dental allows members to stretch the annual dental maximum further and protects from charges above the negotiated discounted fees. To find a Humana dental provider, call 800-592-3112 or visit humanadental.com.

      TeamCare Dental is a voluntary network. Any services provided by a non-participating dental provider will be paid at the reasonable and customary fee level in that area to the annual dental maximum.

      VISION BENEFITS

      TeamCare has partnered with EyeMed to provide in-network access for eye exams and prescription eyewear. The EyeMed Select network has over 100,000 in-network providers which include national providers like LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Target Optical, America's Best and SVS Vision; along with many regional and local independent optometrists. EyeMed also provides access to online vendors like glasses.com and contactsdirect.com. To find an EyeMed provider, call 866-723-0514 or visit EyeMed.com.

      An updated TeamCare Benefits ID card with Dental and Vision information will be sent to members in the Retiree Health Plan (Plans R4, R6, and FR) in mid-April.

      The improvements to the Retiree Health Plans were made possible due to the continued strong performance of the Central States Health Fund and by maintaining industry-low administrative operating costs. These benefit improvements will not increase the monthly premiums required under the Retiree Health Plan.

      If you have any questions regarding the benefit improvement, Local Unions can contact their Field Service Representative or visit MyTeamCare.org.


      Sincerely,

      MEMORANDUM

      To: Holland Local Unions
      From: John A. Murphy, National Freight Director
      Date: February 10, 2022
      Re: Dispatch Problems

      It has been brought to our attention that Teamster represented drivers at Holland are not being properly dispatched, are losing work opportunity and/or not being dispatched in a timely fashion, all while the Company uses purchased transportation. Please be advised that TNFINC is investigating this matter and that such issues WILL BE ADDRESSED. If Local Unions have experienced these problems in recent days, please e-mail a brief detailed description of the situation (including the specifics of the contractual violation) to the freight division ASAP (aernest@teamster.org). Please also send copies of any grievances that have been filed.

      NATIONAL FREIGHT NEGOTIATING COMMITTEE

      MEMORANDUM

      TO: ABF Freight Local Unions
       

      FROM: John A. Murphy, National Freight Director
       

      DATE: February 1, 2022
       

      RE: Profit Sharing Bonus

      Today, ABF announced that it achieved an 89.9% operating ratio for 2021. As a result, the profit-sharing provisions of the 2018-23 ABF NMFA have triggered. Specifically, qualified members (generally those employees who were on the seniority list from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021) will receive a bonus of 3% of their 2021 earnings. This is the third year in a row that ABF Freight members have received a profit-sharing bonus. This year’s bonus, however, is the largest so far. The Company’s success is due to the hard work and dedication of ABF’s Teamsters who worked through the challenges of 2021. The profit-sharing bonuses will be paid on or about February 16.
