The Pension Protection Act
April 9, 2010 - NYC
Issues and Challenges in Collective Bargaining
The Pension Protection Act (PPA), signed into law on August 17, 2006, has been described by many as the most sweeping pension legislation in over three decades.
The PPA, significantly changes funding rules for defined benefit plans negotiated by employers and unions. The Act, combined with the recent economic crisis, has led to unanticipated consequences. This program includes discussion of the PPA’s implications for plan sponsors and the challenges and opportunities facing negotiators as they bargain contracts in a volatile market.
Our panel of experts will guide participants through the myriad issues that arise at the bargaining table, with a particular emphasis on lessons learned from some of the most significant negotiations involving PPA issues.
