Great news! We just learned that Senator Bernie Sanders will introduce the Keep Our Pension Promises Act next Thursday, June 18, 2015. The bill would strengthen multiemployer plans and stop cutbacks of retirees’ hard-earned pension benefits. These cutbacks, authorized by the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014, could reduce the pensions of more than one million retirees in financially-troubled multiemployer plans.
If you can come to Washington, DC, we hope you will join us at the U.S. Capitol for the introduction of the Keep Our Pension Promises Act.
What: Press event announcing the introduction of the Keep Our Pension Promises Act
When: Thursday, June 18 at 11 AM in Washington, DC

We need your support! If you are a retiree, spouse or widow who would be affected by the cuts allowed by the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014, your presence at this event is very important. If you can attend an event in Washington, DC on June 18 at 11 AM, let us know by completing this form. We’ll keep you updated about the event as details are finalized.
