Well it didn’t help that 710 bought all their agents brand new Ford Explorers and we have a multi million $ union hall with a bar that cost $300,000. 710 needs to be put back in trusteeship in my opinion, our Prez has been out campaigning for JB Pritzker, wouldn’t be surprised if our pension money has been used for campaign contributions.As a member that be very troubling. We just had a few years of great stock increases and the percent funded is going down. As a member I would not want a pension increase then.
What if the pension was increased so they are paying more money out and then another long recession hits.....then the pension would have to be cut.
