Chicago and State employees have a fair and decent pension. It could be better, but look at the corruption. We have been advised by several sources including the unions, Mayor Daley and many of his political goons are attempting to have a revision to Article XIII (13) Section 5 Pension and Retirement Rights. They want to remove the following "Membership in any pension or retirement system of the State, or any unit of local government or school district, or any agency, or instrumentality thereof, shall be an enforceable contractual relationship, the benefits of which shall not be diminished or impaired. " Contact your Political Clout Now! It seems the people in power are after the one promise that should be kept. Call your Union, Call your Local Representatives, and Call your State Representatives. Tell them NO, Do Not mess with our pensions. Use your talent to get anyone out of office that violates the trust. Mayor Daley must want to put the money in more of his family's hands.
