U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown plans to introduce legislation shortly that he says will ensure retirees in Ohio can keep the pensions they’ve earned.

Numerous Ohio pension plans, including the Central States Teamsters Pension Plan, the United Mine Workers Pension Plan, the Ironworkers Local 17 Pension Plan, the Ohio Southwest Carpenters Pension Plan and the Bakers and Confectioners Pension Plan, are currently on the brink of failure and threatened by massive cuts, said Brown, a Cleveland Democrat, during a visit Monday to the Teamsters Local 377 hall, 1223 Teamsters Drive.
