    Oh what a relief. The cost of my wife's therapist was about to bankrupt us.

    All Tricks, No Treat in Peeps Candy Strike

    And Hostess comes up again! Unforgivable what happened there. And if bean is lurking around the site I am sure it is killing him to read my opinion and not be able to come back and blast the unions here on this site.

    Just Born is pushing to eliminate pensions for new hires—a move that threatens the viability of the union’s multiemployer pension fund, which has 112,000 participants.

    After the Teamsters’ Central States Pension Fund, the BCTGM’s is the second-largest pension fund with “critical and declining” status. It’s projected to run out of money in 14 years.

    Under the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014, funds with this status can cut benefits—even for current retirees. Central States retirees have mounted a grassroots fight to resist the announced cuts to their benefits, and recently won a reprieve. But ultimately it will take Congressional action to get these troubled funds out of danger.

    “The whole reason the pension fund is in critical status now is because of what Hostess did,” said John Price, the BCTGM’s director of organization. “They went to bankruptcy court and got out of $1 billion of withdrawal liabilities.”
