We Are One Coalition Prepares Lawsuit Challenging Pension “Reform.”

The IEA announced on its website today that the We Are One Union Coalition is preparing a lawsuit to challenge SB 1, Governor Quinn’s pension slashing plan:  http://www.ieanea.org/2014/01/01/union-coalition-preparing-pension-lawsuit/

Teachers, public servants, retirees and  college and university faculty are joining together to protect Illinois from the ravages of “reform.”

CFA is not a formal member of the We Are One Coalition, but our organizing partner, the Illinois Federation of Teachers will play a leading part, helping with legal research and supporting the suit.  We believe everyone deserves a safe and secure retirement, and that everyone ought to be able to trust a contract with the State of Illinois.
