Thank the Pension Movement Activists Who Saved Our Pensions!

You did it!  The Butch Lewis Emergency Pension Relief Act was just signed into law.

That stroke of the pen means that 400,000 Teamsters and 2.5 million workers will no longer lose the pensions they earned with a lifetime of labor. 

It took eight years of grassroots organizing to save our pensions. Eight years of meetings, rallies, phone calls, lobbying, and protests. 

Not everyone lived to see this victory. The pension law is named after Butch Lewis, a Teamster and TDU leader, who helped launch the movement and died from the stress of organizing against the pension crisis. 

We humbly thank pension movement activists for your organizing, commitment and sacrifices. 

[TDU will deliver your signatures and thank you messages to pension movement leaders and volunteers.]
