Subject: Retiree Update: A Big Victory: City Pension Reform - Order declaring PA 98-641 unconstitutional

Dear Retirees:

I am very happy to report that Judge Novak agreed with us, that the City Pension Reform law, Public Act 98-641, unconstitutionally reduces benefits protected by Illinois Constitution Article XIII, Section 5. Judge Novak granted our motion for summary judgment and has ordered the City to pay the benefit increases that the City has been sitting on, while the litigation was pending.

We are pleased that the Court agreed with us on all of our arguments. And a great thank you to those who have helped, by attending hearings, as well as contributing to the war chest; some of you a number of times. But this is not the end of this battle, by any measure. The City will certainly appeal this ruling directly to the Illinois Supreme Court for a definitive ruling.

So our battle continues, as does our need for your help and contributions. We’ve attached the decision, and welcome your comments and questions. Let’s enjoy this victory, and get set to continue the fight.

And the healthcare battle, of course, continues as well.
