Dear Member of Congress:
Two years ago, Congress passed a funding bill that included a last-minute attachment of the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act which allowed for cuts to retirees pension benefits. The Teamsters opposed passage of the MPRA and have also worked to oppose the massive cuts to plans like Central States that the MPRA permitted. Once again, some members of Congress are trying to sneak bill language into the Continuing Resolution that harms retirees.
The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, as part of the Rail Labor Coordinated Bargaining Group, has asked for federal mediation to settle the Class 1 railroad contract negotiations.
Scholarship applications for the sons and daughters of Teamster members are now available.
