Now is the time for all Teamsters – active and retired – to contact their Senators to urge that pension protection be included in the new stimulus bill.

Without relief, the Central States Pension Fund will become insolvent and hundreds of thousands of Teamster families will suffer. The stimulus bill will provide funds to many businesses and corporations – it must provide pension protection, too.
