Public Union Coalition Sues Over Pension Reform Law

A coalition of public sector unions has made good on its threat to go to court over Illinois’s new pension reform law. 


The “We Are One” coalition calls the measure approved last month a “pension theft” law, because the group says it is an attempt to illegally take away the life savings of state workers, teachers and others in the state public pension systems.  The class action suit, which was filed in Sangamon County Circuit Court, has 25 named plaintiffs… including D’Ann Urish, a Springfield special ed teacher. 


The unions say the new law is unconstitutional… and may seek an injunction to prevent it from being implemented while the legal challenge is heard.
