Four Unions Sue Gov. Quinn Over Health Care Premium


The fight over public sector retirement benefits has now landed in court.

 

Four major unions, including AFSCME, have filed suit against Governor Pat Quinn’s administration, arguing that a new law signed by Quinn this summer is unconstitutional.

 

That law requires retirees in the public pension funds to pay a health care premium.

 

Previously, the state underwrote part or all of the retiree’s premium costs.

 

The unions say the constitution guarantees pensions and prohibits laws that impair contractual obligations.
