Save Our Pensions = Call Congress

Friday, January 19 marks the key date in the fight to save our pensions. Congress plans to vote on a budget spending bill, and the pension protection movement is lobbying to get the Butch Lewis Act attached to that legislation. This gives us a chance to achieve the goal of securing retirement security for Teamsters and other workers.

Schumer_Press_Release_thumb.jpgThe National United Committee to Protect Pensions (NUCPP) is calling on all active and retired Teamsters to call both local and national Congressional offices. Get family and friends to do the same. Press these legislators and their staffs to support the Butch Lewis Act.

Any pension rights supporter can call House majority leader Paul Ryan’s office in Washington: 202-225-0600.

Last week, two Republican Congressman – Peter King (R-NY) and Kevin Cramer (R-ND) - signed on in support of the bill. Other Republicans have sent letters to House and Senate leadership asking them to address the pension issue. Momentum continues to build and we need to keep the pressure on.

    I didn’t work for the union to retire and have my retirement lowered. Social Security doesn’t have good cost of living increases and the union pension has zero amount. Don’t take our money away.
