CSPIC Members Lobby Congress About Pension Bill

August 28, 2005: TDU member Frank Bryant wrote to tell us, “As you advised in your article ‘Taking Action to Protect Your Pension’ in the July/August issue of Convoy Dispatch, a group of my Rank and File brothers and sisters decided to do just that: to take action to protect our pensions.”

On Aug. 25 a delegation of Teamster members traveled to Washington, D.C. to meet with congressional aides about pending pension legislation. The delegation included Tommy Burke, Kevin Wright, Frank Bryant (all from Local 391, North Carolina), Randy Brown, President of Local 728, Atlanta and Sandy Pope, President of New York Local 805. They met with aides from Senators Kennedy, Clinton, Enzi and Burr—all of whom are on the Senate committee which introduced the legislation in the Senate.
