Union Coalition Increases Pressure With New "Leaders" Video


With only two weeks left until the scheduled adjournment of the General Assembly in Springfield, the We Are One Illinois coalition is putting pressure on lawmakers to do the right thing and support SB 2404, the responsible labor-backed pension bill sponsored by Sen. President John Cullerton. Watch and share the coalition's new YouTube video.

Although this mess was not the fault of public employees, SB 2404 will help us be part of the solution to ensure that sacrifice is shared by ALL, not just US. SB 1, in contrast, would destroy pension benefits and squarely put the burden on the backs of active public employees and current retirees.

Keep the pressure on your lawmakers and tell them to support SB 2404 and oppose SB 1! Click here to conveniently e-mail your State Representative TODAY.
