Public Employee Pensions
Public employee pension fund assets have increased dramatically in the past ten (10) years as a result of huge profits from stocks and bonds; and
Public employer contributions have decreased in most cases; and
Public employee pension benefits that were previously reduced during previous fiscal crises have, in most instances, not returned to the same level; and
Employee contributions have either remained the same or been increased over the years.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:
That AFSCME support efforts to improve public employee benefits and/or reduce employee contributions to such plans.
