Illinois Retired Teachers Don't Like Union Supported Pension Reform
The Illinois Retired Teachers Association doesn't like the plan which would force them to choose between a couple options, including taking a smaller annual pay raise and keeping access to insurance or keeping their regular pay raise rate but letting go of their healthcare.
Executive Director Jim Bachman says they're gearing up for a court fight if the bill is passed into law. Cullerton's plan is expected to clear a senate committee this afternoon.
Unions that are part of the We are One Illinois group helped pull the plan together that is being presented to the Senate as an alternative to the pension reform bill passed by the house last week.
