Michael P.

I worked for United Parcel Service for 33 years as a driver.  I worked hard all those years and paid for my pension. After retirement my wife became disabled and I tried to get part-time work to help our income, but every job I asked permission to get was refused by Central States. I was retired, but was controlled by them or else I would lose my pension. In 2006 I had to have a double knee replacement which ended in total respiratory failure.  My lungs had been destroyed. I was on oxygen 24 hours a day and not able to do anything. I had a double lung transplant and now take very expensive anti-rejection meds.  Just one of those meds cost me $1000.00 a month. If they take over half of my pension away, we will not make it and without my meds I will die.

Central States has upper officials that make as much as $600,000 a year with private jets, vacations, and many other perks.  They have mismanaged the funds for years and now want us to pay for it!!  Please don’t let this happen!
