If Hoffa Really Cares About Teamster Pensions...

Teamsters and retirees across the union are battling to save our earned pension credits. If Hoffa's on our side, here's how he can show it.

On June 18, 150 retirees converged on Washington to support the introduction of the Keep Our Pension Promises Act.  

Hoffa served on the board of the NCCMP in 2014, which drafted and lobbied for the pension cut legislation. But he sent International VP John Murphy to the Capitol on June 18 to support its repeal.

If Hoffa is serious about protecting our pensions, he needs to show it with action, not just words.

Three Simple Steps Hoffa can Take Right Now

  • Post an Open Letter to the Central States Trustees and Director, asking them to temporarily hold off initiating pension cuts, and back our work on the Promises Act.
  • Send a letter to all U.S. Local Unions and retiree clubs, asking them to voice support to all US Senators and Congressional Reps in their respective areas. And ask them to call on Central States Trustees to do the right thing.
  • Send a blast email calling on all Teamsters and retirees to join this fight. 

So far, we have not seen these minimal, low-cost steps taken. We call upon the Hoffa administration to take action now. And then go on to help mobilize for a mass mobilization in Washington D.C.

Teamsters and retirees are working together with allies to save our pensions. We expect our International union to be on our side – with actions, as well as press releases.
