Tell Congress: Protect Our Pensions

I am a Retiree and I Vote: Keep Your Hands off My Pension

On November 28, 2018 approximately 250 IBEW members from across the United States carried the simple message to Capitol Hill: say no to a circulating proposal that could decimate IBEW’s multi-employer pension plans like the NEBF. In person and in writing, the IBEW delegation warned against excessive fees and onerous taxes on pension plans and urged Congress to remember that workers and retirees put a lifetime of work into their pensions and reminded them of their obligation to protect families and communities from financial ruin. A day after IBEW members stormed Capitol Hill, the committee drafting the proposal announced it was unable to make a recommendation.   

We have won this battle, but we cannot stop there. History is known to repeat itself, so we should prepare for the unknown. Some or all of this damaging proposal could be released as legislation at any time.

That is why we are asking IBEW retirees to follow up the in-person mobilization with postcards or a handwritten letter to members of Congress. A handwritten note is the most powerful mail a member can receive.

Suggested retiree postcard content to members of Congress

Dear Tim Burchett or Marsha Blackburn,
After ___ years of hard work, I rely on my monthly pension. It is a promise negotiated by my union, the IBEW, and my employer. I know some multi-employer pensions are in trouble, but Congress cannot resolve this problem by ruining healthy plans. If you tax my pension, raise premiums, and force burdensome requirements on my plan, my family and I will suffer.
Keep your hands of my pension. Remember: I vote, and I am following the issue.

Name and Address.
