  • Workers' Pensions Saved! A Message from Sherrod Brown
    Updated On: Mar 22, 2021

    Senator Brown's Website



    After years of advocacy by Ohioans and workers around the country who never gave up, Congress finally passed a version of my Butch Lewis Act to save American pensions - and last week, President Biden signed it into law.

    For over a million workers and retirees, the multiemployer pension crisis threatened to take away the retirement security they paid into their entire lives.

    Year after year, we fought together for a pensions fix when many in Congress refused to act, and I pushed Congress to get this done in the American Rescue Plan.

    And on March 6 - one of the best days of my career - the Senate finally passed my pensions fix.

    Now that President Biden has signed the American Rescue Plan into law, these workers will finally have peace of mind that they can retire with the dignity they earned. 

    Senator Brown and Rita Lewis hold up a photo of Butch Lewis, Teamsters Local 100

    As many of you know, I named my pensions bill in honor of Butch Lewis, a legendary Ohio Teamster from West Chester. Butch passed away in 2015 while fighting against devastating cuts to the retirement security he and his fellow workers earned.

    I promised his widow Rita Lewis and workers across the country that I'd never stop fighting until we fully protected their pension benefits.

    Thanks to all of you who made Congress listen to your voices, we've now kept that promise.

    And when we knew this was finally done, I gave Rita a call to share this huge moment with her (WATCH TO SEE HER REACTION).

    Thank you. It's been an honor to fight alongside all of you.

    Spread the good news with someone you know.
