Mike Walden, a retired YRC Teamster from Akron Local 24, reports that the Northeast Ohio Committee to Protect Pensions has held three organizing meetings in the follow up to their well attended March meeting on pension issues. Committee members have organized a phone tree and email list to get the word out to other active and retired members.
The committee has made plans to lease a bus for a trip to Washington, D.C. for the next round of Congressional hearings. The group has met with representatives of Senator Sherrod Brown.
The Northeast Ohio Committee to Protect Pensions can be contacted through TDU. These committed Teamsters can give you pointers on how to organize to defend our pensions in your area.
