FREE for WP&BC SF Chapter Members

Thursday, July 14, 2016 (11:45 AM - 1:00 PM)
Come join us for a lively round table discussion!
Come discuss the complex and controversial issues surrounding the Central States Teamsters pension plan and lobbying efforts to provide multi-employer plans relief. We will share tips and best practices and our discussion leader will provide clarity on the issues at hand.
Charlie Storke from Trucker Huss will lead the discussion.
Charlie Storke has over 30 years of experience in the employee benefits field, and specializes in representing regional, state-wide and local multi-employer pension and health and welfare plans, including the Western Conference of Teamsters Pension Trust Fund, the largest Taft-Hartley trust in the United States.
Mr. Storke has considerable knowledge and experience with tax-qualification and other Internal Revenue Code issues for multi-employer pension plans. He has been instrumental in designing and implementing a hybrid defined benefit-defined contribution multi-employer pension plan structure that gives Taft-Hartley trustees wide flexibility in maintaining negotiated pension levels while providing significant allocations to individual accounts for participants.
Mr. Storke has counseled trustees of financially troubled pension plans on their responsibilities under the funding provisions of the Pension Protection Act and the parties who sponsor those plans on the implications of those funding requirements for their labor negotiations. He was directly involved in crafting the multi-employer funding relief provisions of the Pension Relief Act of 2010.
Alison Wright from Hanson Bridgett LLP will moderate.
