Your Central States Pension is in Crisis…TAKE ACTION NOW!
|It’s Crunch Time …!! We need your help to get all members and retirees to call their Senators. The new COVID stimulus bill which includes relief for multiemployer pension plans has now reached the Senate where the bill is open to debate and various motions. If passed by the Senate, Central States and other multiemployer plans will receive funding to avoid beneﬁt reductions to participants. We expect some Senate Republicans to try to offer amendments or try and remove pension relief from the COVID stimulus bill. It is critically important that our members, unions, and employers call their Senator and tell them that multiemployer pension relief is desperately needed and to vote against any motion that eliminates this important relief for essential workers. Passing the COVID stimulus bill by the Senate would solve the pension crisis facing millions of essential workers and retirees across the country. But … this won’t happen without one final push ….|
