Retirees Turn Out in Force

May 24, 2013: On April 14, some 3,000 retirees came to the union hall to hear an update from Al Nelson of the Central States Pension Fund. Many are concerned about the move by Central States and the Hoffa administration to pass a law which would eliminate the "anti-cutback" rule and allow Central States to cut existing pensions.

"I am glad we had a meeting for retirees at Local 41 in Kansas City. Vic Terranella, President of Local 41, was concerned that our members got some information from Central States on the proposed cuts in the "Solutions not Bailouts" document. Let your voice be heard loud and clear. Our solidarity must not waver. Many of you have worked 30 or 40 years for your pensions. So be part of a fair solution; stay informed and active. Talk with other retirees. Talk with your local and TDU. And join TDU. I did. TDU will keep you informed, and information is POWER."

David Scheidt, YRC, Local 41, Kansas City (Retired)
