This is directed to those who say that TDU does nothing but attack the IBT leadership. Here is an attempt by TDU and it's attorney to stop the NCCMP's efforts to cut our pensions........ Remember that General President Hoffa sits on the board of directors of NCCMP and originally back this plan.

March 10, 2014: Over 120 active and retired Teamsters packed the house on March 8 in Richfield Ohio to learn about Congress being lobbied right now to undermine pension law, and the battle to save our pensions. The meeting was organized by Teamsters for a Democratic Union and a committee of Northeast Ohio Teamsters who have been active in defending their retirement security.
Ann Curry Thompson, a pension rights attorney who works with TDU, outlined how the National Coordinating Committee for Multiemployer Plans (NCCMP) has spent the last two years lobbying Congress to rework current pension law. She reported the NCCMP proposes changing the law to allow troubled pension funds, like Central States, the ability to cut already accrued benefits. Thompson said this could slash the benefits of those already retired, as well as those still working. - See more at: Organizing to Defend Our Pensions | Teamsters for a Democratic Union
