Incoming AFSCME Head Says New Approach Needed On Pension Crisis

The incoming director of the largest state employees union says an Illinois Supreme Court ruling appears to confirm the union’s view that the state’s recent pension reform law is unconstitutional. 


Roberta Lynch of AFSCME Council 31 says it’s too soon to know the full impact of the ruling, but thinks it shows the state will have to find another way out of the pension mess. 


She says the union is willing to work with state officials to find a fair solution… but says there has been no recent attempt by state officials to hold talks with the union.
