Career DuPont Employee Fights To Save Retirees Earned Pension and Benefits

eTradeWire News/10578936
NEW YORK - eTradeWire -- When Carol Knotts retired from industrial giant DuPont after 31 years, she planned to dedicate her time to volunteering for causes dear to her, like fighting breast cancer.

But on Sept. 1, 2017, something radical occurred to change those plans: Du Point completed a $130 billion merger with Dow Chemical to form what became the DowDuPont (DWDP) company.

Now, as Carol explains in a recently produced promotional video (which can be viewed at the link below), retirees' pensions are at risk because DuPont transferred pension liabilities to Corteva. A company that has no loyalty to the women and men who gave their careers to DuPont, puts earned pensions and benefits at risk.

She says it is more important than ever for retirees of the DuPont Company to band together to support and defend their earned pensions and benefits.

Three years after retiring, Knotts joined and committed to serving the Association of DuPont Retirees, which advocates for former DuPont workers who planned their retirements around the pensions and benefits they were promised, and which are now at risk.

"I know when people are retired, they get their regular check every month, they think they are safe, and they think they don't need to do anything," Knotts explains. "That is not true in this case. It is so inexpensive to be a member of this organization, and people don't realize how critical it is at this very moment."

In order to advocate for the protection of retirement pensions and benefits, retirees need to communicate with each other. Members of the Association of DuPont Retirees will have access to up-to-date information and receive regular updates on the issues that affect the safety of our earned benefits, as well as the opportunity to offer feedback and engage in discussion with other fellow retirees.
