Take Action To Save Teamster Pensions

Teamsters are on the verge of a victory that will stop devastating pension cuts as part of the upcoming COVID-19 Relief Bill. Take action now to save the pensions of 2.5 million workers and retirees, including over 400,000 Teamsters.

The U.S. House the House Ways & Means Committee has approved “The Butch Lewis Emergency Pension Plan Relief Act of 2021.”

This is the first step toward winning this protection as part of the COVID-19 Relief Bill. But we’re not there yet.

Anti-worker forces are pushing back hard. Thousands of activists are taking action to make sure the Senate does not exclude pension protection from the COVID-19 Relief Bill before it's voted on in March.

Seven years ago, TDU launched a movement to save the pensions of Teamsters and other retirees. Now, Teamsters are on the verge of a huge victory. 

The legislation to save our pensions is named after Butch Lewis, a Teamster and TDU leader who died before the movement he helped launch completed its mission.

We can’t let that happen. Together, we can make sure the Senate includes pension protection in the COVID-19 Relief Bill.
