Local union celebrates passes of act that saves pensions

The Butch Lewis Act essentially saves workers pensions from taking cuts due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The union celebrates the news with a gathering at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lima, Ohio.

"Long-term speaking, the pension will be in good shape and fixed for thirty years, and they are thinking thirty-five," said Grant Loftis, Secretary Treasurer of Teamsters Union 908. "It's repaired and patched and everyone that earned a pension through teamsters is guaranteed to have their pension when they were promised."
