Appeals Court Bolsters Union Argument Against Pension Law


An appeals court ruling this week could give a boost to state workers and teachers who hope to have the state’s new pension reform law thrown out. 

 

That appeals court in Springfield ruled that the state was required by its constitution to pay full stipends to county treasurers… even though lawmakers had not appropriated the full amount. 

 

Crain’s Chicago Business says the ruling echoes the argument made by public sector unions that the state constitution… and its prohibition on reducing compensation and benefits… takes precedence over any law.
