    Feb. 28, 2021 The Teamsters are applauding the House’s passage of a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus bill today that includes language granting relief to hundreds of endangered multiemployer pension plans that would protect the hard-earned retirements of more than 1 million American retirees and workers.

    One step closer: The House is voting on our pensions solutions!
    Feb. 25, 2021 The full House of Representatives is preparing to vote on a bill that includes a solution to protect our pensions. We have an opportunity to ensure that the pensions we earned are there for us in our golden years. The Butch Lewis Emergency Pension Relief Act of 2021 is included in the broader COVID relief bill.

    Mar. 1, 2021 | U.S. LABOR | Rarely has the chasm between rank-and-file-workers and the extremely wealthy been this wide. While millions of people have lost jobs, gone hungry and struggled to pay for their basic needs, billionaires' wealth soared to new heights in 2020. And although the pandemic made things worse, America's wealth gap has largely been expanding since the 1980s. Among the many contributing factors: Far fewer jobholders have a seat at the table in negotiating with upper management than they did decades earlier… CNN Business
