Junior was on the Board of the very group that drafted the pension cut legislation. The cuts being proposed by Central States Pension Fund were illegal until the pension cut legislation was passed last year. awful served on the board of the National Coordinating Committee of Multi-employer Plans in 2013 when it drafted the pension cut legislation that paved the way for these massive pension cuts. Junior claims he changed his mind on the pension cut bill, but an leaked email from the Central States pension fund reveals that Hoffa’s “opposition” was all for show. When the PBGC expressed concern, Central States Director Thomas N sent an email saying that Hoffa’s opposition was a stunt and that he would not “dispatch troops to the Hill or make any visits” against the pension cut bill, but would only “post on their web site to offset” rank-and-file criticism of the cuts. And that’s exactly what happened. The Teamster trustees who voted for the Central States pension cuts consist of awful and Kenny H campaign donors and personal friends. One is even on the awful-Kenny payroll! awful-Kenny running mates have repeatedly endorsed the Central States pension cut plan. Junior's Vice Presidential candidates Tyson J and Jim K spoke in favor of the cuts at a special Central States briefing as recently as April 8. Junior has held PR appearances and issued press release—but never mobilized a soul to oppose the pension cuts. Last month, when 200 rank and file retirees went to Washington DC to testify against the pension cuts, the awful-Kenny administration mobilized no one. But Junior showed up for a photo-op. Junior let employers abandon the Central States Pension Fund—helping the corporate bottom line while undermining Teamster pensions. Junior and Kenny let UPS out of the Fund and now pre-2008 UPS retirees face a 50% pension cut. Junior has let other major Teamster employers abandon the fund, including Kroger and Waste Management. The Central States Pension Fund has lost over 2/3rds of its contribution base on his watch. Its time to vote the awful-Kenny EB out next year!
