Contact Senators Kennedy and Enzi Today!

March 16, 2006: The key senators to contact about the dangerous Red Zone Amendment are the ranking members of the Senate Health Education Labor and Pensions Committee, Edward Kennedy (D-MA) and Mike Enzi (R-WY).

A sample letter appears below. You can use the “Cut and Paste” function on your computer to send this letter via email to these Senators. Their websites, phone and fax numbers appear below.

Dear Senator,

Our family is counting on a pension from a multi-employer plan, which we have worked hard to earn. We need your help to make sure that already earned benefits cannot be cut, by a dangerous provision that was included in HR 2830 at the last minute: the so-called “Red Zone Amendment.”

We urge you to support a pension bill but to oppose any provision that amends ERISA to allow already-accrued benefits to be cut.

We are worried about our future and our retirement. Working families need legislation that will protect our retirement security—not undermine it.

Please support a pension bill without the language that would destroy the long-standing anti-cutback protections of ERISA.

Senator Mike Enzi, Chairman, Senate HELP Committee (R-WY)

Labor Notes: NLRB Attacks Rights of Stewards

"The NLRB announced employers will no longer be restrained from disciplining or discharging stewards or officers who use profanity or engage in other “abusive” actions in violation of an employer’s enforced code of conduct. The decision upends the special legal protections enjoyed by union grievance handlers for the past 70 years."
