Thousands of LIUNA Members Call Out Congress on Pension Attack!

The United States Congress is considering a proposal that could destroy our pensions. Read LIUNA’s statement and letter to Congress: http://www.liuna.org/news/story/‘cong...ress-believes-robbery-is-easy-when-no-one-is-looking’ and
https://d2jug8yyubo3yl.cloudfront.net/26999B2F-7C10-4962-918C-E964709E745D/a466d529-aa5e-4c48-a659-bb30f45147ac.pdf

The proposal is a drastic tax increase on our plans, which would rob tens of millions of dollars that current retirees and future retirees alike have worked hard to earn. Thousands of LIUNA members have already connected to their representatives to tell them: I’m against the pension bill that would raise pension insurance premiums and rob me of my pension. Send your message now.

~ JORDAN COVE LNG PLANT UPDATE ~

 

Dear Members:

There are two important public meetings coming up for the Jordan Cove project. These are opportunities for the project to show that its supporters care about this project and want to see it built. We encourage you all to attend and show your support by wearing your Booster t-shirts, hard hats, safety vests or union local t-shirts.

A positive showing by project supporters will show the agency staff and the media that project supporters out-number the opponents.  

THE TWO UPCOMING MEETINGS:

Information meeting on the South Dunes Power Plant application and site certificate review processThursday, Feb. 12, 2015,    6 – 9 p.m.,   Hales Performing Arts Center, Southwestern Oregon Community College, 1988 Newmark Ave., Coos Bay, OR 97420

The Oregon Department of Energy provides the staff for the Energy Facility Siting Council (EFSC), which will ultimately rule on whether or not to allow construction of the power plant that will provide the necessary power for the Jordan Cove natural gas liquefaction terminal. This is an informational meeting to explain the EFSC process and the project. This meeting will include a project briefing by Jordan Cove's development team to explain the power plant. 

DEQ Air Permit application hearing

Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015, 6 – 9 p.m., Heritage Hall at Marshfield High School, 10th & Ingersoll St.,          Coos Bay, OR 97420

Similar to the meetings held in January on the water quality permit, this meeting is an informational meeting on the Air Permit application.

Thank you again for all your support.
