Betrayal, Deception, Investigation, Robocalls: SB2404

John Cullerton, Democratic Senate President, wrote Amendment 002 to his own “shared sacrifice compromise” pension bill, SB2404, on May 8. Two past-presidents and the present president of IEA have endorsed the bill while IEA robocalled and emailed all active teachers to support SB2404. WHY?

SB2404 GIVES US A CHOICE OF PAYING 100% OF AN UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT AND EVERCHANGING COST INCREASES FOR WHATEVER IS CHARGED FOR HEALTHCARE – OR WE MAY CHOOSE TO DO WITHOUT HEALTHCARE. (See actual wording below.)

SB2404 SURRENDERS OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS AS SOON AS WE AGREE TO IT. (See actual wording below.)

The IEA must send robocalls and emails to all teachers AND retirees telling about this horrendous deception. IEA used robocalls and emails to promote it; it must do the same and more to tell us the truth.

The IEA must investigate this deception (dated May 8) and reveal who was implicated in this betrayal. It is inconceivable that no one in IEA or We Are One Illinois was aware of Amendment 002 for over a week. They all granted smiling endorsements and attended a Rah-Rah Rally in Springfield.
WHO BETRAYED US?

STOP 2404 NOW.

“Retired Option 1:

  • The TRS COLA would continue to be 3 percent compounded annually calculated from the member’s current pension.
  • A staggered automatic two year forfeiture of the member’s COLA after the effective date of the bill.
  • Access to state health insurance with the possibility of paying 100% of the premium. 

Retired Option 2:

  • The TRS COLA would continue to be 3 percent compounded annually calculated from the member’s current pension.
  • No access to state health insurance.”

“The vested and enforceable contractual right to a program of health benefits is NOT offered as, and shall NOT be considered, a pension or retirement benefit under Article XIII, Section 5 of the Illinois Constitution, the Illinois Pension Code, or any subsequent or successor enactment providing pension benefits…”
