(WASHINGTON) – The Teamsters today hailed the Senate Finance Committee for holding a hearing looking into the need to reform multiemployer pension plans like the Central States Pension Fund, which has proposed slashing the benefits of retirees by as much as 70 percent.

The Teamsters Union actively advocates on behalf of Teamster members and all of America’s working families at all levels of government. Priority state issues for the 2016 state legislative sessions include:
Ensure Retirement Security for Working Families: All hard-working Americans should share in the American dream of living their golden years without fear of bankruptcy or poverty. But with pensions and Social Security under attack many questions remain about whether that will be a reality for millions of Americans approaching retirement age. Congress must take steps to guarantee that those who played by the rules and were promised retirement benefits have financial security when their working days have ended.
