The Plan was originally established January 1, 1971, was amended and restated effective December 31, 2001, and was again amended on December 30, 2002, February 20, 2003, and December 21, 2009. Throughout the Plan's history, it has been updated continuously to keep up with the changes in the law. Many of these changes have resulted in important benefit improvements and added protections for Employees and their spouses. The Trustees have also amended the Plan, from time to time, to add new benefits (such as Disability, Early Retirement, and Death Benefits), to increase the benefit schedules and the amount of income you will receive at retirement, and to shorten the time required to become vested in your benefits.
We hope you will share with us our enthusiasm for the Plan and the added measure of retirement security it provides for those who work in the culinary, bartending, and hospitality industry.
