Teamsters Rally in Washington to Protect Pensions

Over 2,000 retirees and Teamsters from 20 states rallied on Capitol Hill today to support the Keep Our Pension Promises Act, and to call on the U.S. Treasury Dept to reject the pension cuts proposed by the Central States Fund.

The grassroots movement that has been building for two years turned out in buses, cars and airplanes, with their signs, banners and energy. We drew support from a number of Senators and Congressional Representatives who spoke at the rally.

The pension movement is growing and building strength. Get involved and add your voice.
