Stinking NIPSCO

I just learned today some of the things the Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) is wanting to do to their retirees.

Today, the Executive Board's of USW 12775 and 13796 started the development of the bargaining policy for the 2009 Contract negotiations. Today was the first time I realized that these crooks at NIPSCO attempted to steal the medical benefits from many of our retirees. Nothing beats a good kick in the pants for a job well done and giving your entire working life to this rotten company.

I'll be doing my best to find out what else NIPSCO is trying to do, not only to their retirees but to their active bargaining unit members as well, and at the same time, their wanting to raise their stinking rates. Do you believe that? NIPSCO wants to raise their rates and screw their retirees at the same time.

Keep tuned, because this blog will be used to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about this infamous company.

Trump To Cut Social Security

Trump’s Promise Not to Cut Social Security has been Broken by Robert Roach, Jr. President Trump’s fiscal 2018 budget is a non-starter. He has betrayed America’s seniors. In fact, $2 trillion in deficit reduction turns out to be just a math error. The budget cuts $72 billion over ten years from disability programs, including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Trump promised repeatedly to protect – not cut – Social Security. Yet his first budget does just that, harming millions of disabled Americans.  The Trump budget also slashes $1.4 trillion from Medicaid over 10 years.

Almost two-thirds of that was for seniors and people with disabilities, who rely on Medicaid for health care and long-term care. This cut is drastic and dangerous by any measurement. This budget also decimates the Community Development Block Grant, which pro…

Thanks from Bill Gibbons

Thank YouWhile there have been a lot of serious developments that can adversely affect retirees and the working class that I could write about, I would like to extend my appreciation and thanks to two SOAR activists and leaders of SOAR that I have had the privilege and opportunity to work with in pursuing the mission and activities of SOAR. Charlie Averill, who was the Secretary-Treasurer of SOAR, decided not to run for re-election during our recent SOAR conference. He has since been appointed an Emeritus member by International President Leo W. Gerard. Charlie has devoted many years to SOAR in the performance of his duties as Secretary-Treasurer. Those of us who have had the opportunity to work with him have firsthand knowledge of his dedication and leadership. His work on the “SOAR Chapter-Connection” is just one example. I am pleased that he is still working on it. Jim Centner, SOAR Director, is retiring June 1. I have found Jim’s dedication, leadership and work for SOAR untiring, su…
