Pension Legislation

Late last week Governor Rauner vetoed legislation that would’ve put our pension funds on a path to stability and full funding. He is now pushing a different pension bill that would drastically cut our benefits.

This Bill is called Senate Bill 16 and it would steal money from our life savings, and make it harder for employees of the City to ever retire.  Please call your State Senator and plead with them to VOTE NO on Senate Bill 16!

You can type your zip code (and address if necessary) here to figure out who your State Senator is. Click on their name to find their phone number and call them to tell them to Vote NO on Senate Bill 16- you’ve worked too hard to have Governor Rauner steal your pension.
