Secretary-Treasurer Brian Ball met with a group of Local 61 retirees and discussed pension news.  The North Carolina Committee to Protect Pensions (NCCPP) has worked extremely hard to lobby Congress and advocate for protections of the earned pensions of our retirees.  NCCPP leaders Dale Hanner and Norm Parham gave updates concerning the Central States Pension Fund.  Brother Brian Ball gave updates to the group about active issues happening at Local 61 including upcoming negotiations for UPS, T-Force & ABF.
