This article in City Pages is headlined How a once-mighty union sold out thousands of workers on the eve of retirement, but the full story is a bit more complicated than that. People are being left out in the cold by their union pension fund, in this case the Teamster's, but it's more a case of political football than sell-out. The game involves the federal government and its pro-corporate policies and the machinations of another mighty player, United Parcel Services. Not that that makes it any better for the victims.
