After a lifetime of hard work, we all deserve to retire with dignity. Unions negotiated to provide retirement security for millions of working people, but some pension plans are now at risk.
Sens. Chuck Grassley and Lamar Alexander have put forth a proposal that would make the situation much worse, cutting retirees’ benefits and threatening the future of the entire multiemployer pension system.
Working people did not cause this crisis and we should not be penalized because of it. The Grassley-Alexander proposal not only includes big cuts to retirees’ benefits, it also would impose hefty costs that would destabilize healthy multiemployer pension plans.
Call your senators today and urge them to reject the Grassley-Alexander proposal. Tell them to support legislation that will provide retirees with their hard-earned benefits and stabilize the multiemployer pension system overall. Anything less is unacceptable.
