By now you have probably heard about the Central States Pension Plan. Central States has filed an application with the Treasury Department to receive permission to cut many retirees’ pension benefits. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters has already submittedcomments to the Treasury urging the Department to deny the Central States application and protect retirees’ earned benefits.
Currently, Senator Peters and Representative Debbie Dingell are leading letters in their respective legislative chambers to the Treasury asking the Department to reject the Central States plan to cut retiree benefits. The letters face a rapidly approaching deadline, so we need your assistance to encourage your Senators and Representative to add their name. Take Action Now!
You can take action here and send an email to your members of Congress or you may call the Teamsters Pension Protection Hotline at 1-888-979-9806 to be connected directly to the offices of your members of Congress and let them know how much this issue means to you.
