New Proposal to Reform Multiemployer Retirement Plans Will Help Hard Hit Construction Industry
 

The chief executive officer of the Associated General Contractors of America, Stephen E. Sandherr, issued the following statement in response to the release of the National Coordinating Committee for Multiemployer Plans Retirement Security Review Commission’s proposed plan for preserving, remediating and innovating multiemployer retirement plans: “The Commission’s plan represents a pragmatic, reasonable and – most importantly for taxpayers – self-sufficient approach to preserving and protecting nearly half a trillion dollars worth of multiemployer retirement plans.”

“These retirement plans, many of which are funded by construction firms, are needed to ensure long-term security for tens of thousands of construction workers. As important, the retirement plans’ funds provide a vital source of capital for domestic investments in everything from small businesses to major infrastructure projects. The steps outlined in the Commission’s plan give employers and their workers the tools they need to protect their retirement plans.”
