On This Day in 1934
United Textile Workers strike committee orders strikers back to work after 22 days out, ending what was at that point the greatest single industrial conflict in the history of American organized labor. The strike involved some 400,000 workers in New England, the mid-Atlantic states and the South.

Butch Lewis Act best solution for pension crisis
Updated On: Jul 12, 2018

Workers and retirees aren't asking for a handout;
they just want what is rightfully theirs

July 10, 2018

Continued from main page | The Teamsters believe the Butch Lewis Act, introduced in Congress earlier this year, to be the best solution to deliver retirement security to the hard-working Americans who are paying, or have paid, into the pension pool and have played by the rules all their lives.

There are about 1.5 million retirees – including 1,900 former Local 557 retirees  – in desperate need of quick action to save the retirement nest eggs they spent decades contributing to. 

The more support the Butch Lewis Act receives, the more likely it is that the Joint Select Committee will take it up and pass it. 

Please call 888-979-9806 right now and tell your member of Congress to co-sponsor the Butch Lewis Act.
