About 1,000 Teamsters union workers and retirees filled a meeting room at Bartle Hall to capacity on Tuesday evening at a U.S. Treasury event to air complaints about proposed cuts to pensions from the Central States Pension Fund. The fund is grossly underfunded, and deep cuts to many recipients are proposed to keep the fund solvent. The Treasury appointed a special master, Kenneth Feinberg, who was at Bartle Hall to listen to the union members.
