Renaker Hasselman Scott successfully represented an employee of a United Food and Commercial Workers local union who participated in the UFCW International Union’s Pension Plan for Employees. The employee was terminated from his union employment after 16 years of service, during which he had contributed to the Pension Plan and vested under its rules. A year later, the local rehired the employee, but it failed to recommence withholding his pension contributions. After three years, the employee realized that his pension contributions were not being withheld. He re-enrolled in the Pension Plan and requested to make up the missing contributions, but the Pension Plan refused to allow him to do so and, when he appealed the decision, refused again. Renaker Hasselman Scott submitted a further appeal, and the Pension Plan agreed to accept the contributions and credit the employee’s service, bringing him to 20 years’ pension service and making him eligible to continue medical benefits when he retires.
