Please take action IMMEDIATELY!

In November, 2019, the Grassley - Alexander Multiemployer Pension Recapitalization and Reform Plan was introduced in Congress.  This legislation is TERRIBLE for multiemployer pension plans, and we are asking ALL of our members, and their family and friends, to please contact their United States Senator and ask them to oppose the Grassley Plan and to instead, consider signing on to the better option, the Butch Lewis Act (H. R. 397), which has broad bi-partisan support.

We are asking everyone in all three (3) Sates, Indiana, Ilinois, and Missouri, to contact their respective Senators by calling them at (844) 551 - 6921.  If you feel more comfortable utilizing a local Senate office, please utilize the following:

In Illinois, please contact Senator Tammy Duckworth in Carbondale at (618) 677-7000, and also Senator Dick Durbin, in Carbondale also, at (618) 351-1122.

In Indiana, please contact Senator Mike Braun in his Indianapolis office at (317) 822-8240, as well as Senator Todd Young, also in Indianapolis, at (317) 226-6700.

In Missouri, please contact Senator Roy Blunt in his Cape Girardeau office at (573) 334-7044, and Senator Josh Hawley in Cape Girardeau as well, at (573) 334-5995.
