  • WHAT SHOULD I SAY TO MY MEMBERS OF CONGRESS?

    • Here are a few suggested things to say in phone calls, meetings, emails, and letters. However, it is most important that you tell your story.

      •Tell them your name and where you live.

      •Tell them that you want Representative/Senator ________ to actively support the work of the Joint Select Committee on Solvency of Multiemployer Pensions

      •Tell them you are in the Central States Pension Fund and, unless Congress takes action now, your hard-earned pension will be cut to almost nothing.

      •Tell them that your pension security is your top priority, and you hope it’s high on their list of priorities too.

      •Tell Your Story.

      •Share your type of work along with how many years you have worked toward your pension.

      •Explain how losing your pension will affect your life—mortgage, healthcare, food, basic utilities.

      •If you are a veteran, it is important to inform your Members of Congress of your military service for your country.

      •Most of all – Be polite, but firm.

      •Make sure they understand that this is an important issue that will absolutely affect how you vote.
