IMPORTANT NEWS FROM IEA PRESIDENT CINDA KLICKNA 5/12/14
Colleagues:

Illinois' new pension law will not go into effect starting June 1 after a judge today granted the members of the We Are One Illinois coalition, of which the Illinois Education Association is a member, a stay in the case.

Sangamon County Circuit Judge John Belz heard from all sides on the issue today and granted a temporary restraining order, meaning none of the law is to be implemented until he rules on the entire case.

The law, known as SB1, was passed in December and slashes cost-of-living adjustments, reducing the value of pension benefits by one-third or more after 20 years in retirement. It also hikes the retirement age and makes other, unconstitutional cuts to the pensions of working and retired members of the Teachers' Retirement System, State Employees' Retirement System and State Universities Retirement System.

"For our members who are part of TRS and SURS, we had a victory today in being granted this stay," said IEA President Cinda Klickna. "Now we'll wait to see what the court says about the entire case."

No date has been set for that lawsuit.

SB1 was to go into effect on June 1. However, WAOI filed a motion Monday asking that the law not be implemented. Teachers and other public service workers around the state were being asked to make life-altering decisions based on a law that is still subject to a lawsuit, the coalition noted. Belz granted the WAOI request.

IMPORTANT NEWS 5/12/14
Press Statement on Injunction Filing – Final – For Immediate Release We Are One Illinois Seeks Injunction to Halt Implementation of Pension Theft Legislation
Today, the We Are One Illinois union coalition and plaintiffs filed a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction in Sangamon County Circuit Court to seek a full stay of the implementation of Senate Bill 1 (Public Act 98-599), pending a resolution on the act’s merits.
SB 1 slashes cost-of-living adjustments, reducing the value of pension benefits by one-third or more after twenty years in retirement. It also hikes retirement ages by up to five years and makes other unfair, unconstitutional cuts to the pensions of working and retired members of the Teachers' Retirement System, State Employees' Retirement System, and State Universities Retirement System.
"The pension theft bill must not be implemented before the courts have ruled. The fair and proper thing to do is not to allow this legislation to cause any damage until the courts have spoken on its constitutionality. Otherwise, teachers, first responders, nurses, and other state and university employees and retirees will be irreparably harmed," said Michael T. Carrigan, president of the Illinois AFL-CIO, on behalf of the coalition.
"People are being forced to make irrevocable, life-altering retirement decisions,” Carrigan continued, “yet they face these decisions in an uncertain economic environment while awaiting a court ruling. The pension theft bill should -- and, we believe, will -- be overturned, but the decision to retire cannot be undone.” The court filing also argues that the harm to pension system members and the pension systems themselves will be immediate without an injunction, but an injunction would not immediately impact the state’s fiscal situation. The filing states: “To the extent that the Act purports to fix pension system funding issues, that fix is implemented over a long term. The State admits in its recent budget projections that no savings would be realized from the Act until Fiscal Year 2016.” Carrigan concluded, “A complete stay of the bill's implementation is necessary to avoid irreparably harming active and retired teachers and state and university employees.”

Statement from the We Are One Illinois labor coalition "This is no victory for Illinois, but a dark day for its citizens and public servants.

"Teachers, caregivers, police, and others stand to lose huge portions of their life savings because politicians chose to threaten their retirement security, rather than pass a much fairer, legal, negotiated solution in Senate Bill 2404.

"It's bitterly ironic that, on the same day legislators used the state's troubled finances to justify stealing the retirement savings of public servants, they approved millions of dollars in new tax giveaways for big corporations.

"A majority of legislators ignored and defied their oaths of office today—but Governor Pat Quinn doesn't have to. He can stay true to his oath and the legal promise made to public employees and retirees by vetoing this unfair, unconstitutional bill. If he doesn't, our union coalition will have no choice but to seek to uphold the Illinois Constitution and protect workers' life savings through legal action."
