The article reports on the efforts of the Teamsters Union to delete a provision from the pension reform legislation signed by U.S. President George W. Bush that would eliminate early retirement benefits. The union is upset about so-called red zone rules that would allow multi-employer pension plans that are less than 65 percent funded to cut back on early out benefits that have been earned by truck drivers, carpenters and other laborers.
