Regional Local 207 also provides for the membership a Defined Contribution Pension Plan. With this style of Pension Plan, our employers have no unfunded liability. The plan provides an accounting of each individual member's monthly contribution. All monies are invested together to maximize earnings as well as protecting the overall integrity of the Trust.
