    Along with the workers contributions to the pension as well. Which tended to make up MOST of the over funding of the pension plans.

    NOT the companies "profits"

    And they arent really giving up profits if they had already agrred to those terms to begin with. Is my company giving up their profits to pay me for working? Nope.

    Pensions tend to become "overfunded" due favorable stock market activity. Pensions would never make on employee contributions alone

    that almost begs the question of why the executive pension plans were so "mismanaged".

    Even if that were true ( its not ) So what?

    And why would the rank and file pension be so grossly over funded while the executive one was so grossly over funded?
