Including the Pension cut provision in the Omni bill was done underhandedly. It is in direct contradiction with ERISA that protects these pensions. Crippling the pensions earned by 270,000 people deserved to be discussed on the floor of Congress on its own merit. We as Teamsters must realize that this was initiated and done by the democrats, the very same people we supported over the years in the very same way Clinton undercut us with NAFTA deal.  The Federal government is directly responsible for crippling our Pension Plan. Appointing the Central States management was a complete disaster. Yet, Nyhan is getting a $ 38,000 raise for crippling the Plan. It is worthy to mention that our Pension Plan does not have cost of living raises and therefore our buying power is shrinking with every passing year.
