I worked for Schlitz/Stroh Brewery for 30 years. Every contract that came up we took retirement benefits instead of the massive raises that the company offered. We were promised that our money would grow and when we retired it would be there for us. Now that I have been drawing my pension, Central States says that they are going to cut our retirement in half. It is not my fault that they mishandled the money. I think that they should come up with a better plan than cutting benefits to thousands of fellow Teamster brothers and sisters that have worked hard for their pension only to be told we are going to take half back. I think that our congressmen and women and senators should support the KOPPA ACT and help us out.  Thank you for letting me voice my opinion.
