Speaking Out Against Pension Cuts

February 4, 2015: Teamster members are making their voices heard about the threats to our pensions. 

John Raffiani is sick about what may happen to his Central States Pension but that’s not holding him back from doing something about it. He contacted a reporter at the Albany Times Union and made sure the pension cuts story made headlines in his city.

Check out the coverage in the Albany Times Union.

The pension cuts story needs to be told in cities and communities across the country--and you can help. Your story is important and TDU will work with you to get it out to the press and to the public.  

Call TDU Organizer Peter Landon at (313) 842-2600 for more information.

Teamster members and retirees are coming together to defend our pensions.

Contact TDU to get involved and help organize a pension meeting in your area. We can help, including with guest speakers who can help explain pension issues and what’s next for the pension protection campaign.
