Dallas needs to help painters on strike: Trive Capital and SSW Advanced Technologies are
Using Our Pension Money to Attack Our Pension!

Gemtron Corporation in Vincennes, Indiana is wholly owned by SSW Advanced
Technologies, which in turn, is wholly owned by Trive Capital, a private equity firm right
here in Dallas.
The IUPAT has represented the employees at Gemtron for decades and has secured
contracts that provide family-sustaining wages and benefits, including a defined-benefit
pension plan that allows workers to retire with dignity.
Gemtron now faces multiple unfair labor practice charges and a strike as it seeks to
deny its employees their full pensions and tries to strip away any hope that new workers
can earn their own retirement.
The same Pension Plan that Gemtron is trying to deny to its workers invests millions in
contributions made on behalf of blue-collar participants across the US and Canada. Part
of the Pension Plan’s responsibly diverse portfolio is. . . tens of millions of dollars
invested in Trive Capital and SSW!

Tell Trive and SSW that union busting is disgusting!

Private equity firms like Trive beg for the union pension fund dollars they rely on to fund
their ventures, but they show their true colors when they spend those dollars to attack
the very unions and pensions that fund them!
We won’t forget that Trive Capital took working peoples’ money to attack working
people. Neither should you.

Join in us supporting the Gemtron worker efforts to collectively bargain in good faith.

When: Wednesday May 22
Where: 2001 McKinney Ave Dallas, TX 75201/Corner of Olive St and McKinney St
