As a follow-up to NYSSA’s Multiemployer Pension Conference in 2016, the 1st Annual State of the Union Pension Funds will feature leading representatives from the union multiemployer pension universe to discuss how these funds are managing not only the volatile equity markets, but also the low interest rate environment. Multiemployer Pension plans, which are operated by groups of companies together with officials of a union that represents their workers, oversee roughly $500 billion in assets under management. Such plans are common in sectors like the building trades, where the workers move from job to job, taking their benefits with them. The trucking, retail and mining industries also have many multiemployer plans. The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation estimates that about 10 million Americans are earning or receiving pensions from the roughly 1,400 multiemployer defined benefit pension plans in the US. While the financial crisis greatly impacted the funded status of these plans, they have recovered significantly since 2009.
