DNC Pension Forum Featuring Teamster VP Murphy

A top Teamster voice on the issue of pension security joined with the House Ways & Means Committee chairman and other union leaders on Aug. 18 in calling for reforms that would boost failing multiemployer pensions plans to ensure that workers and retirees get the benefits they deserve.

International Vice President John Murphy, one of several participants in a virtual panel on retirement security at the Democratic National Convention, said there is no time for delay in coming up with a solution to the nation’s multiemployer pension crisis, which is jeopardizing the hard-earned nest eggs of some 1.5 million Americans.
