It's possible and likely. You wouldn't "lose" your pension but your payments would stop because you wouldn't be considered retired. They would resume when you again retired. Retirement meaning you are not working in any covered employment as defined by your union/plan.

sanchezmikea, what CuseFan describes would be spelled out in a "suspension of benefits notice" that you would be required to receive if you went back to work in a union job that was covered by the union pension plan. But if you went back to work in noncovered employment, you would not get one. In any event, the terms of the suspension should be contained in your pension plan's Summary Plan Description. You should get a copy of that and review it carefully.
