" We are joining together as representatives of labor and management to ask for your strong support of the multiemployer pension plan proposal that has been developed by the Retirement Security Review Commission of the National Coordination Committee for Multiemployer Plans. Their proposal is known as Solutions Not Bailouts (SNB). It will significantly benefit both the 325,000 skilled craft men and women in the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA) and the 2,800 employers that belong to the Mechanical Contractors Association (MCAA) by making the retirement plans in our industry more secure. This will be done without a government handout. It will be done by labor and management working out solutions together through bargaining and through cooperation at the pension fund level."
