These excerpts come from the public reports by the company paid by the Carpenters union to replace West WA pensions to move liability from employers to employees. Please share to as many carpenters as you can! This is likely a part of a national push by Las Vegas and the employers.
Milliman is the billion dollar multinational actuarial and consulting firm hired to replace Western Washington and South Alaska carpenters pensions with a retirement plan that shifts liability from employers to employees. It is not known yet how much the Carpenters union is paying Milliman, but Milliman’s reports suggest they have been working for the carpenters union at least since 2014.
Because of this ongoing crisis there have been a number of unofficial carpenter meetings organized to discuss the pension and how to fight it. There is a rally planned for Westlake Park on October 19th 5pm. Please spread the word! This is your money!
