Mark Your Calendar for IFT Lobby Day, Wednesday, May 1

Throughout the week, the IFT’s legislative department  asked that members reach out to their State Representatives to demand they oppose any unfair, illegal pension slashing megabill. 

Your efforts helped stop the Illinois House from advancing any non-negotiated, draconian proposals this week. Thank you!
In Springfield, top labor leaders and staff have been collaborating with legislators to ensure that retirement security for public employees and retirees is a priority in any pension solution.  We will continue that effort next week, as well.
The House is taking off for a one-week break next week. It will be a good time to stop by or call your House lawmaker to remind her or him just how important it is to oppose any legislation not agreed to by the IFT. 
The Illinois Senate will be in legislative session next week.
Make sure that you mark your calendar for IFT Lobby Day on Wednesday, May 1. We need more members, retirees and families there to let Illinois politicians know that we’re watching.

IFT Briefings will be held in the morning and then members will be sent to the capitol to talk to their lawmakers. Lunch will be provided and members will be reimbursed for mileage.

Call the IFT legislative office to register and receive more information. 217-544-8562
