“Our goal is to get state legislatures and local officials like mayors to understand that if these pension cuts go through, many cities, towns and states are going to suffer,” said Dale Dobbs, a retired Wisconsin Teamster and the organizer of a network of sixty Facebook sites addressing Central States proposed cuts. “We need these politicians to understand they need to press Treasury to reject the application or they will face dire costs in their communities.”

Actions are planned for Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Nebraska, Texas, Mississippi and Michigan. For further info, contact the Facebook network: http://www.mycspensionhandsoff.com or Dale Dobbs: (608) 383-3300.
