The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) announced the approval of a Special Financial Assistance (SFA) application submitted by the Laborers’ International Union of North America Local Union No. 1822 Pension fund, which covered 525 participants in the construction industry in Syracuse, New York.
