Victory: Central States Cuts Rejected – But Fight Is Not Over!
IBT | We are extremely pleased to share the news that the Department of Treasury has rejected the application to cut pension benefits proposed by the Central States Fund. While this is a great victory for retirees, we still have a long fight ahead of us to ensure that retirees’ earned benefits and quality of life are protected. Both the Keep Our Pension Promises Act (KOPPA) and the Pension Accountability Act (PAA) would help secure retiree benefits but they are stalled in Congress. We need you to reach out to your Representative and Senators to ask them to support these bills and help move them through Congress.Take Action

This gripping documentary chronicles the strikes that set the stage for a massive upsurge that brought millions of unorganized workers into unions. Notable for their advance preparation and military tactics, the strikes succeeded with the support of non-union, unemployed and women workers.
