Incoming AFSCME Head Encouraged by Illinois Supreme Court Ruling on Subsidized Health Insurance for Retirees


The incoming head of the largest state employees union says a state Supreme Court ruling last week appears to confirm the union’s view that Illinois’s pension reform law cannot stand.

 

The high court ruled last week that retiree health insurance benefits are protected under the state constitution and cannot be diminished. Roberta Lynch of AFSCME says it should be clear that the pension reform law will face the same legal hurdle.

 

She says the union is willing to work with the state to find a legal resolution to the crisis… but so far, no one has reached out to AFSCME to discuss alternatives.
