HOFFA MEETS WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP

TO DISCUSS PENSION SECURITY

(WASHINGTON) – International Brotherhood of Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa and International Vice President John Murphy met with President Donald Trump today at the White House to seek support for the union’s efforts to ensure pension security for Teamster members and retirees. They also discussed other issues of significant importance to Teamsters and their families.

"It is important that President Trump understand the urgent need to address the pension crisis our nation is facing," Hoffa said. "We are pursuing efforts to establish a path to solvency for pension funds in crisis. We had a very good conversation and are looking forward to a continuing dialogue."

Murphy has been leading Teamster efforts to address the growing threat to Teamster members’ retirement security.

"Over the past two years, we have worked to develop a viable legislative solution to the pension crisis," Murphy said. "As part of this process, it is paramount that we secure bipartisan support. It is important that the administration understands the scope of this crisis and the impact it could have on millions of Americans."
