Biden releasing nearly $36B to aid pensions of union workers

President Joe Biden is announcing the infusion of nearly $36 billion to shore up a financially troubled union pension plan.

President Joe Biden on Thursday is announcing the infusion of nearly $36 billion to shore up a financially troubled union pension plan, preventing severe cuts to the retirement incomes of more than 350,000 Teamster workers and retirees across the United States.

The money for the Central States Pension Fund is the largest amount of federal aid provided for a pension plan, the Biden administration said, and comes from the American Rescue Plan, a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package that he signed into law in 2021.

Many union retirement plans have been under financial pressure because of underfunding and other issues. Without the federal assistance, Teamster members could have seen their benefits reduced by an average of 60% starting within a couple of years.

“Union workers and their families are finally able to breathe a huge sigh of relief, knowing that their hard-earned retirement savings have been rescued from steep cuts,” said Lisa Gomez, assistant labor secretary for employee benefits security.

Multiemployer pension funds are created by agreements between unions and companies and are partially insured by the federal government's Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation. The insurance program was on track to become insolvent in 2026, but the pandemic relief money is expected to keep it on firm footing through 2051.

Biden traveled to Ohio in July to highlight the final rules for the pension relief program. Before Thursday, the program had awarded aid to 36 troubled pension plans, but none of those had received more than about $1.2 billion.

The amount going to the Central States Pension Fund represents somewhere between one-third and one-half of the total estimated cost of the federal aid program.

The retirement plan has participants in almost every state, with the largest concentration in the Midwest. There are about 40,000 participants in both Michigan and Ohio, nearly 28,000 in Missouri, 25,000 in Illinois and about 22,000 each in Texas and Wisconsin, according to figures provided by the White House.

This is just one of the many banners that proud Retired Teamsters from Wisconsin traveled with for years across America to ensure Teamsters and their Families were always at the forefront. 

Retention and Recruitment Issues causes Waste Management “Again” to Modify the Current Labor Agreement

Submitted By Local 200 Business Representative & Joint Council 39 Solid Waste Director Tom Benvenuto

Over the last seven months Waste Management had hoped that the earlier April changes to the current Labor Agreement would have solved their “Retention and Recruitment” issues, but they did not. So, in mid-November Waste Management reached back out to Local 200 to meet and discuss additional changes to the Labor Agreement that they felt might help fix their “Retention and Recruitment” issues.

The Company latest offer starts by moving next year wage increase up six months. The next change will add a large weekend premium to the members’ base rate before it combines with the time and one half for Saturday and the double time for Sunday. This extra weekend premium will apply for all weeks in which there is no holiday during that week, because then Saturday is part of the normal workweek. The Union was also able to add eight days more of paid time off for a new total of (33 days) for employees with 25 years or more. Also, we were able to increase time off for other employees by them getting more vacation time sooner, along with new employees based on their hire date in their first year with the company being able to earn up to one week of vacation.

The Company also proposed, and the Union agreed to add new language to the Labor Agreement for what we call “refresher school”.  By adding this new language to the Labor Agreement, it means that members would get an extra kick at the can for discipline as it relates to Accidents, Incidents and Injuries every 12 months. By taking this refresher class members will be able to remove one level of discipline.

The Company was also asking for a Saturday rotation so that new employees would not have to work every weekend. The Union said they would agree with the Company proposal under two points. One, being that anyone volunteering each weekend has first choice over anyone in the rotation for that week. Secondly, all employees of 15 or more years are excluded from the rotation schedule, unless everyone is working. The Company agreed to both of the Union demands.

Teamster Local 200 Waste Management group consists of hauling sites, landfills, container shop and transfer stations totaling almost 200 members. This latest offer was presented to the membership on December 4, 2022, and after all questions were answered, members voted over 95% to except the Company latest offer.

Joint Council 39 Solid Waste Director Tom Benvenuto says this is a good deal for the membership in Southeastern Wisconsin who work in the Waste Division. These last two offers by Waste Management have raised the area standards and allowed the Union to enhance the overall working conditions for its members. 

At a recent General Membership Meeting of Teamsters Local 200, Roundy’s Driver Union Steward Brian Griffin expressed his thoughts and concerns regarding Roundy’s Driver Larry Wilhite. Brother Wilhite suffered a personal medical emergency while on duty when making a delivery at a local Roundy’s store. Union Steward Griffin made a motion with the motion being seconded by all in attendance to “pass the hat” for Brother Wilhite, with the Executive Board announcement to match the collected donation by the membership. Recently, Business Representative Jay Couturier, Union Steward Brian Griffin, and Assistant Union Steward DeAngelo Thornton visited with Larry and shared the offering of the Members and the Local Union. The General Teamsters Local Union 200 Membership, Executive Board, Agents, Staff and especially the co-workers of Larry’s at Roundy’s wish him a speedy and full recovery.  

 

During the early morning hours on Friday, November 4, 2022, Business Agent Jared Wolski shared a delicious treat and communicated the importance of the upcoming election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, with our Teamster Brothers and Sisters at RYDE in the City of Racine. 

Along with Agent Wolski were the PFO Members of Wisconsin Teamsters Joint Council No 39 and Evan Anderson of Local 200 with the JC39 Semi.

 

To the Actives and Retirees of the Local Union and who are participants of Wisconsin Health Fund, please watch your mailbox for very important information about the Open Enrollment Period beginning November 1, 2022. If you have any questions, the Staff at WHF is available to assist you.

Teamster Brother James Harmeyer was presented a pin by Business Representative Jay Couturier that recognizes his 45th year as a member of General Teamsters Local Union No.200. Brother Harmeyer has worked his entire Teamster career at Roundy's and has been instrumental with his ability and strong character to show others the benefits of belonging to the Teamster Union. Thank you, Brother Harmeyer,  for your service and for all you do.

STATEMENT BY SEAN O'BRIEN ON
 KROGER-ALBERTSONS MERGER

(WASHINGTON) – The following is a statement from Teamsters General President Sean M. O’Brien regarding the proposed merger between Kroger and Albertsons:

“Teamster warehouse jobs in the grocery industry are some of the best jobs in the country, and our members take great pride in what they do. The proposed merger between Kroger and Albertsons will have serious implications for the more than 18,000 Teamsters employed at both companies and is another example of why real antitrust reform is needed.

“Historically, mergers of this magnitude have a negative impact on workers and the public. Less competition almost always means higher prices and fewer choices.

“We will be monitoring developments as the regulatory process plays out. There are a lot of unanswered questions that need to be addressed. Our concerns are shared among workers, customers, elected officials, shareholders, consumer advocates, and the general public.

“We fully stand with our members and will oppose any merger that threatens jobs or weakens working conditions. These essential workers keep the nation fed, and they must be considered first and foremost throughout every step of this process.”

Founded in 1903, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters represents 1.2 million hardworking men and women throughout the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Visit teamster.org for more information. Follow us on Twitter @Teamsters and “like” us on Facebook at facebook.com/teamsters.

 

 

Juan Sanchez, pictured with LU200 Business Agent Jay Couturier, has decided to enjoy the life of retirement after 2 decades at Roundy's Supermarkets Inc. Juan has been a good friend, role model, and a source of building one's good work ethic for many, as the only job he chose in the rebid process during the 20 years was as a Selector.  His coworkers presented him with a trophy that states, "Numero Uno Selector"! 

Juan will stay active assisting his son in the world of sports collectibles and memorabilia in the Milwaukee area.

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, Business Agent Terry Simenson met with two separate LU200 Teamster Bargaining Units that perform services at Quality Carriers in Bristol, Wisconsin. Proposals were provided by the Teamster Mechanics from Quality Carriers and from Teamster Tank Washers that work under the Quala Tank Wash collective bargaining agreement. Both Teamster Units are very highly qualified in the field of services they perform in their industries.      

The below offering is from Kyle McCoy from the SoldonMcCoy Law Firm that represents Wisconsin Teamsters Joint Council No. 39 regarding a recent decision by the National Labor Relations Board and your ability to wear Union Insignia or Union Apparel at the worksite.  Union activism is at its highest level in decades, and we can ensure our presence is not silenced by elected officials and anti-Union employers that are determined to weaken the power of your Union and your voice!

 

“On August 29, 2022, in a case involving auto workers at a California Tesla plant, the National Labor Relations Board found that wearing union insignia (shirts, buttons, etc.) at work is protected communication that an employer may not normally restrict. The NLRB overruled its 2019 decision involving Wal-Mart, which placed restrictions on employees' rights, and instead reinstated the rule that an employer has a heightened burden to justify any attempt to ban union insignia. Employers are afraid when they see employees banding together and know that it's easier to divide and conquer when you can ban what employees wear. The Republican-appointed members of the NLRB dissented in the decision; they wanted to allow Tesla and any other employer to forbid Union insignia at work. For many corporations, unlimited campaign spending is protected free speech, but a small pin with Thunder, Lightning, and the Local's number, why that's too scary and should be illegal. Stop by the Local's office on Bluemound to pick up the latest gear for frightening your employer this Halloween!”

 

There are sensible work rules that have been bargained about uniforms and discussions proper attire at the workplace over the years. If additional information is sought on these matters, please reach out to your Local 200 Business Representative to review the language of the CBA.

“Pipelines are the #SafestWay to Fuel Tour”

On Thursday September 8th Local 200 President Tim Pinter, Joint Council 39 Construction Director and Business Representative Tom Benvenuto, along with Business Representative Gary Shearier attended an event called “Pipelines are the #SafestWay to Fuel Tour”, which was held at Steamfitters Local 601 in Milwaukee. The program is tied to the Line 5 Relocation Project and the promoting of pipelines as the one of the safest ways to deliver energy to the public. This project will provide over 700 good paying Union jobs for Wisconsin Tradesmen and women. There is already a signed PLA for all the work on this project, meaning it will all be done by Union members from the Teamsters, Operating Engineers, the Laborers and the UA. At the conclusion of the program guests were invited to partake in signing a piece of the pipe which will be installed as part of this project. The “Pipelines are the #SafestWay to Fuel Tour” has been traveling the State of Wisconsin educating the public about how safe pipelines are for moving energy. On Friday, the “Pipelines are the #SafestWay to Fuel Tour” was in Green Bay at Lambeau Field. Local 662 President Tom Strickland, attended the pipe signing event on behalf of Local 662.

 


 

Labor Fest 2022 was a powerful day where Organized Labor gathered in Milwaukee to showcase our commitment to our community, families, and friends. Teamsters Local 200 Brothers and Sisters stood together with a strong message of unity and solidarity with all Brothers and Sisters of Organized Labor.

President Biden, along with Secretary Walsh, spoke of the American Rescue Plan and the ongoing efforts of the restoration of earned Multiemployer Pensions of millions of workers across America. These comments energize Active and Retired Teamsters in attendance at Labor Fest.

On behalf of the Executive Board, Agents, and Staff, we thank everyone that came to Labor Fest this year.

 

As we gather to enjoy Monday, September 5, 2022, as Labor Day, let us recognize and honor the efforts of each Brother and Sister of Organized Labor. Our contributions shall continue to strengthen the lives of generations to come.

General Teamsters Local Union No. 200


 

Teamsters standing united for our Brothers and Sisters!

 

Brothers and Sisters,

For nearly a decade, Teamsters Local 200 has stood in support with our Retirees of Central States Pension Fund working towards a positive solution for the preservation of the earned pensions of thousands. As this matter found us at our moment of need, the work continued with so many costs. Along the way, we found Pension Warriors that fought a courageous battle, and along the way, we lost several of these Pension Warriors as their will never surrendered, but their heart was not strong enough to finish what they had begun.

As our goals have not changed, the methods to seek the results for all changed from moment to moment. There are several individuals that were determined to work outside their personal comfort zones, and they were determined to prevail with a cost many will never fully know. There are individuals that have worked day and night, city to city, and state to state, and individual to individual. We gather our thoughts and appreciation toward those individuals that fought the battle and used their old-fashioned Teamster heritage when required of them.  

Recently, Teamsters Local 200 Retiree Kenny Stribling meet with President Joe Biden to offer his voice and speak the words of wisdom of so many to ensure that Actives and Retirees have dignity during their days of Retirement. Brother Stribling never stood alone in this movement as Retirees Bob Amsden, Bernie Anderson, and many others of Local 200 shared the same vision and passion of work ethics on behalf of CSPF Members across America.    

As the Application has been recently resubmitted to the PBGC by Central States Pension Fund, we stand firm awaiting the positive news that so many work tirelessly for on the behalf of people they will never personally know.  

Local 200 is proud to announce that we have signed a new gravel hauling company under the Teamster Union banner. Blume Trucking out of Brighton, WI has signed a Three Year Labor Agreement to become Local 200 Teamsters. We continue to look forward to adding more companies like Blume Trucking in the future. This new Agreement covers Wage, Healthcare, Vacation and Retirement benefits for our new members.

 

Business Representative Gary Shearier meets with long-term union steward Tim Domagalski from GFL to receive out standing member applications.

Please read this very important information from Central States Pension Fund. 

Central States Pension Fund Has Withdrawn and
Resubmitted Application for Special Financial Assistance

In April, we informed participants that Central States Pension Fund submitted an application to the federal government for Special Financial Assistance (SFA) under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA).

At the time we submitted our application, we understood it was possible that the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) would direct the Fund to withdraw it and resubmit a revised version. As we previously notified participants, it is not unusual for this to occur as most pension funds that submitted an SFA application have found it necessary to withdraw and resubmit.

In response to guidance from the PBGC and to take advantage of favorable provisions of the PBGC’s “Final Rule” concerning SFA, we withdrew our original SFA application and submitted a revised version on August 12.

The revised application applies PBGC-requested changes to certain assumptions. The revisions also apply favorable provisions contained in the PBGC’s final rule concerning the SFA program, which became effective on August 8. 

As a result of these combined changes, the amount of SFA requested by Central States in the revised application is one-half of one percent (0.5%) lower than the amount requested in the original application.

The SFA is expected to allow Central States to remain solvent and continue paying all benefits through at least 2051, and likely longer.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? 

The PBGC has up to 120 days to review the revised application (by December 10), but it is possible the PBGC will render its decision sooner than that. Based on the PBGC’s extensive review of Central States’ application to date, as well as the average time for the PBGC to approve and deliver payment on prior revised applications, we would expect to receive the approved special financial assistance in one lump sum before the end of 2022.  

After submitting our original SFA application in April, we had anticipated receiving PBGC approval by August and payment by November. As is provided for in their rules, the PBGC will reimburse the Fund with interest payments so that the delay caused by refiling will not have a material impact on the financial health of the Fund.

We will provide updates about important developments with the SFA application via this website, email and on our recorded message hotline at 800-323-7640. Click here to register for email updates.
