Minnesota House Rep Stands By Teamster Pension Activists

Congressman Rick Nolan (D-MN) has invited Sherman Liimatainen, the Vice President and Treasurer of the National United Committee to Protect Pensions (NUCPP), to sit beside him when President Trump addresses Congress for the first time this evening. Nolan stated, “Make no mistake, there are powerful forces trying to do away with people’s pensions, and we will continue to fight them on every front…”

Nolan also announced the establishment of the new Pension Protection for Working Americans Caucus in Congress. Teamster pension activists from various committees are visiting Congress this week to continue to lobby for legislation that will provide real solutions for pension participants in the Central States and other Funds facing cuts.

TDU members continue to work with the Pension Rights Center, the AARP, the NUCPP, and other allies to organize grassroots meetings and actions to defend our retirement security. If you would like to learn more or get involved, sign up here.

    I hope something happens and I hope a lot of CSPF officers get worried.
