These dedicated Teamsters rallied to get media exposure for the fight to stop pension cuts for Central States Teamsters. A number of Michigan Teamster pension activists made the trip for the rally. They were joined by other activists backing the Fight for 15 campaign and a range of causes.

Amsden was interviewed by two television stations and reporters from various media were also on hand. Check out the Wisconsin Committee to Protect Pensions facebook page for more details.
