President Donald J. Trump is Taking Unprecedented Steps to Protect the Pensions of American Workers

Press Release:

    "As long as I am President, we will never waver in our undying loyalty to the American worker." - President Donald J. Trump

    PROTECTING AMERICAN AUTOWORKERS: President Donald J. Trump is taking action to address the Obama administration's decision to terminate the pension plans of non-union and salaried autoworkers of the Delphi Corporation.

  • Today, President Trump issued a Presidential Memorandum directing his Administration to review the Obama administration's decision to terminate the pension plans of Delphi Corporation's non-union and salaried workers.
  • When Delphi Corporation spun off from General Motors (GM) in 1999, its union workers received a deal from GM to protect their pensions, while non-unionized and salaried workers did not.
  • After both companies went bankrupt, Delphi's union pensions were fully protected while its non-union and salaried pensions were not.
  • The non-union and salaried retirees have spent the last decade in legal and financial limbo as they challenged this decision in the Federal courts.
  • The Memorandum calls for a thorough review of the decision to terminate, for additional transparency around the decision, and for information about the actions the Federal Government can take to remedy the situation, including potentially restoring the plan.
  • President Trump is committed to protecting the pensions of hardworking Americans, regardless of union affiliation.


    SAFEGUARDING AMERICAN PENSIONS: The President is also calling for a thorough review of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation's (PBGC) financial position.

  • The PBGC serves as a vital safety net for millions of Americans with defined-benefit pension plans.
  • In 2019, the Government Accountability Office included the PBGC's Single-Employer and Multi-Employer Programs on its list of high-risk Government programs.
  • The Multi-Employer Program is particularly vulnerable and is projected to become insolvent within the next five years.
  • The President's Memorandum directs the Secretaries of the Treasury, Commerce, and Labor to inform the President of steps that can be taken to strengthen these programs and provide financial certainty and security for millions of Americans.


  • PROTECTING THE AMERICAN AUTO INDUSTRY: President Trump has taken numerous actions to protect American auto jobs.


  • President Trump is protecting the American automobile industry, its workforce, and is standing up for American innovation.
  • The President signed the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which includes game-changing new protections for American autoworkers.
  • President Trump worked to significantly improve the United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement, securing key changes that benefit the American automobile industry.
  • Last year, the President issued a Proclamation directing his Administration to pursue negotiations to protect the automobile industry and its vital role in our national security.
