What are the grounds if any for a teamster to forfeit his or her pension? I have 30 good years, can I lose my pension?

DOES ANY GOVERNMENT AGENCY HAVE THE POWER TO TAKE MY PENSION FROM ME FOR ANY CRIMINAL REASON OTHER THAN ILLEGAL CONTRIBUTIONS.

In 2001, I wrote a story about a special tree in the Shell Ridge Open Space.  I shared the story with a few friends.  One of the friends was Daya Cramer.  Daya taught  a college preparation course in creative writing at a local High School.  The first story was written by one of her students.  It is about a class field trip to my home in Walnut Creek.  In October of 2001, approximately fifteen students from Daya's class were introduced to the mystical realm.  I learned later that they were "not the same" for the rest of the school year.  I don't know if they have all recovered or if they want to.

I am pretty sure that the answer to your question is NO they cannot take your pension. Unless maybe you are ordered to pay restitution then they would be able to take it the same as they could garnish your paycheck.

Why do you ask? Have you been robbing members retirement benefits and been putting it into your pension?

if an incompetent "banned for life" toodleoo crook like Ron Carey was able to keep his multiple pensions (over 5 of them) then it is doubtful that you can do anything more egregious to lose your pension.

"In 1993, Teamster president Ron Carey stopped any further benefit accruals in yet another officers-only pension fund, the Affiliates Plan. He also abolished the wasteful Area Conferences, and their officers-only pension boondoggles. These reforms saved our union some $30 million per year. This Southern Fund was then so well funded—over 200 percent funded—that no contributions were required. Later, under the Hoffa administration, it was depleted."

The PGBC is the government agency that essentially takes over distressed pension funds. It stands for Pension Guarantee Benefit Corporation. Can your pension be eliminated entirely? I don't know. However, I do know that any pension taken over by PGBC typically pays reduced benefits. I'm not aware of any union pension funds that were taken over by PGBC but it happens with employer Pension Funds all the time. The biggest threat to Union pensions is reduced membership and the inability to negogiate new unionized employers into pensions. Additionally, there are many unionized employers seeking to stop participation in multi-employer union pensions at contract renewal time. Scary times. Members need to be willing fight to retain their pensions. It is simple math...The amount being paid into a pension fund has to keep up with the amount currently being paid out to retirees. Otherwise, unfunded liabilities occur. Unfunded liabilities are ultimately tthe responsibility of employers participating in the pension...hence the reason employers are heading for the exit if they can get away with it. I am aware of a significant Teamster employer that has paid employees bonuses of up to $5,000 when new contracts were negotiated over the past couple years...in order to eliminate their pension from the CBA. Some units held out and retained pension...but many more took the bonus and settled.

Ron Carey -- First term

Changes and challenges came quickly during Carey's first term. Within days of his inauguration as union president, he replaced a large number of top staff at the union's headquarters, and within a few weeks sold the union's two airplanes and started charging staff for lunches in the union cafeteria.[25] He twice ordered his own salary cut, from $225,000 in 1991 to $175,000 in 1994.[24] In his first few months in office, Carey defeated a disaffiliation attempt by flight attendants working for Northwest Airlines (and later refused to agree to a contract in which the Teamsters would win a 30 percent ownership stake in Northwest in return for $886 million in contract concessions),[26] renegotiated a contract for truck drivers (carhaulers) who ferried automobiles from ports and factories to dealers, and defeated an attempt by the Safeway grocery store chain to contract out its trucking operations.[10] Carey was also active politically. He was the first Teamsters president to testify widely in front of Congress.[10] He vigorously opposed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and pledged political retaliation against members of Congress who did.

Carey became a UPS driver and joined the Teamsters in 1956.[11][12] He and his father pooled their money and bought a home for both families in Kew Gardens, Queens.[9][13] He ran for and was elected shop steward of the 7,000-member Local 804 in 1958 because he felt members weren't getting the services their dues paid for.[8][9][10][11] He was elected secretary of the local in 1965.[11][12] After several unsuccessful campaigns, Carey was elected Local 804 president in November 1967.[8][9][10][11] He earned a reputation as a hard bargainer (by 1977, he had negotiated salary increases which doubled his members' 1968 hourly wages) and for being free from graft and the influence of organized crime.[9][11][14] Under his leadership, in November 1967 Local 804 became one of the first Teamster locals whose members qualified for a pension after 25 years of employment regardless of age.[9][10][12][14] He also led long but successful strikes in 1968, 1971, 1974, and 1982.[12][14][15] He was re-elected eight times, winning each campaign by landslide margins.[9] Although Local 804 had always negotiated its own contract with UPS, the national union forced the local to participate in the national master contract in 1979.[14] Carey was named a negotiator for the national master contract, but was not included in the Teamsters' national bargaining team.[9] In 1987, Carey sued to overturn a provision of the union's constitution which permitted rejection of a proposed contract only by a two-thirds majority. The union changed the provision to permit a majority to reject a proposed contract.[

Let me get this straight. You don't consider encyclopedia's, including Wikipedia, to be a reliable source. You get your information from a blog that was written by an obscure reporter. The dots simply don't connect. You have to do better with this topic. I agree with many of your posts. Surely you can do better with this topic. Who are you and what local do you belong to?

=======================================================

 

In 2001, I wrote a story about a special tree in the Shell Ridge Open Space.  I shared the story with a few friends.  One of the friends was Daya Cramer.  Daya taught  a college preparation course in creative writing at a local High School.  The first story was written by one of her students.  It is about a class field trip to my home in Walnut Creek.  In October of 2001, approximately fifteen students from Daya's class were introduced to the mystical realm.  I learned later that they were "not the same" for the rest of the school year.  I don't know if they have all recovered or if they want to.

I certainly do NOT consider Wikipedia a credible source....ever since Sarah Palin stated that Paul Revere warned the British the government was coming to take their guns in opposition to the second amendment....and reichwing advocates entered enough mis-information into Wikipedia to reflect this fairy tail.........shaman if you are relying in Wikipedia to absolve crooked Carey and his toodleoo minions....you are even more pitiful than I thought.

Ron Carey and Pension Reform @ http://en.wikipedia...._(labor_leader)

Carey did take extensive measures to clean up the union, however. In September 1992, he trusteed 18,000-member Local 237 in New York City for corruption, which led to an extensive battle for control of the local.[35] In January 1994, he trusteed Local 732 to remove it from the influence of the Lucchese crime family,[36] and trusteed Local 851 (which represented workers at John F. Kennedy International Airport) for being under the influence of organized crime as well.[37] He investigated the Local 819 health plan for selling policies to non-members and denying reimbursement to members to fund the scheme;[38] trusteed the local representing workers at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for corruption and nepotism;[39] trusteed Local 97 in Union, New Jersey, for being under the control of the Genovese crime family;[40] trusteed Local 875 after federal investigators found that more than $8 million had vanished from the union's pension fund;[41] and trusteed Local 1205 after finding that the union put non-members into its health plan, engaged in nepotism, and had violated federal pension regulations.[42] By mid-August 1995, Carey had trusteed 51 of the union's 651 local unions (mostly on the recommendations of the Independent Review Board).[40] The number had risen to 67 by July 1996.[25][43] The changes did not come without a backlash. Carey received a number of death threats during his first term, and hired bodyguards to protect himself and his family.
