Let’s Rally in Springfield on October 26, 2011

We fought off efforts during the Spring to gut our pension benefits but the big corporations vowed to return during the fall veto session.  Well, the fall veto session goes into swing next week and we need a few good members to step forward  and drive down to Springfield and lobby their State Senators and Representatives on the pension issue.  But that’s not all.  Also at stake is the future of collective bargaining because Governor Quinn’s stance on current contracts (the General Assembly didn’t appropriate enough money, so I am going to have to reneg on my promises made in collective bargaining agreements) could kill collective bargaining in Illinois whether you work for the State, city or county.  This is important stuff and we need members to step up and fight.  Send an email to board@cookcountypd.org and let us know that you are ready to take a day off and drive to Springfield to fight for what’s right.

    Aren’t we glad the city, state and county are run by “progressive” Democrats?
