Congressman Chris Collins, NY-27, has joined the auto industry pension task force for the 113th Congress. Made up of members of the House of Representatives from both political parties, the group works to bring attention to the issues related to the termination of Delphi salaried retiree pensions.
"Delphi salaried retirees were stripped of the benefits they worked for and were promised," Collins said. "This task force will work in a bipartisan way to help advocate for these retirees and try to find a solution that restores the salaried pensions without impacting federal taxpayers."
Collins met with John Benoit and Rick Strusienski, both Delphi salaried retirees, to discuss the situation in Niagara County. The task force was founded last month and is chaired by congressmen Turner and Ryan, both of Ohio.
