I worked for two different trucking companies, Red Ball Motor Freight and Yellow Freight., now known as Yellow Roadway Corporation (YRC). I did 15 years at Red Ball and 15 years at Yellow Freight. I paid in all my union dues to get my retirement and I retired in Sept.1998 and I have been drawing this ever since then, $2,200.00 after taxes. I earned this, and now, age 73, they want to cut my pension that I earned. This is a hard job and the only reason that I stayed was for the hourly pay at the time in 1964 at Red Ball Motor Freight. They gave me Teamsters benefits at the time and they went out business in 1982 and I went and found another company Yellow Freight where I payed all union dues there until I retired in 1998. I would like to know what the Central states and southeast did with our money? I think the people that did all investments should be accountable for this because there is something going on. I just want to know did someone or somebody pocket the money or stole it from the Pension Fund?
