Taft-Hartley pension funds offer much-deserved benefits to union members of different-sized employers. However, the regulations associated with these funds are immensely complex and require the counsel of a knowledgeable firm.

Understanding Taft-Hartley Pension Funds
Under the federal Taft-Hartley Act of 1947, unions have the option of negotiating the same pension plan with multiple employers. This allows them to provide uniform pensions for union members who have small- or mid-sized employers. These types of defined benefit plans are known as Taft-Hartley pension funds or multiemployer plans.
