Take Action

Take action - for a fair solution!

Last spring and again last fall, your calls and emails stopped attacks on the modest pensions that teachers, fire fighters, nurses and other public employees earn, pay for and depend on.

Workers know there is a pension funding problem -- and nobody has a greater stake in solving it than they do. After all it's their retirement security.

That's why Illinois public employees and their unions have stepped up to work for a fair solution, offering to help clean up a mess they didn't make. But the same politicians who created the pension debt by failing to pay their share now are trying to make workers bear the entire burden for solving the pension problem themselves.

Use the tool below to write to your legislators and the governor. Tell them not to punish public employees but work with them for a fair solution.
