The meetings will allow active and retired Teamsters to voice their opposition to proposed Central States pension cuts. 

Feinberg is charged by Treasury to make a recommendation to deny or allow Central States to implement the changes. A decision to allow the cuts would be followed by a vote of all Central States participants and that vote would be conducted by the U.S. Treasury Department within thirty days of a recommendation.
