Now isn’t that all cozy…and all that bullshit about them butting heads I been saying all along…don’t believe for one minute the Hollywood scripted good cop bad cop, it’s all for show
This is another sad comedy so to speak when you don’t know whether to scream in anger or shed tears over the fact again the deck is stacked. This so called board of 8 is made up of four 9house appointees, 1 judge ( who may be fair or may not, I have no knowledge of her ) and 3 legit members. Reminds me of the laborers pension board four appointed by 9fingers, three local 1001 so called union members that are proven bedfellows to 9fingers and no way represent their members any more and one ( now get this ) retired member who supposedly we voted into that position to represent the retirees even tho by law we can’t be represented ( go ahead say it “HUH” ) . Now if a vote was needed and just say the union people were legitimate ( to which no way in hell that would be true ) the worse that could happen is a tie and im sure it’s built in 9fingers could break the tie. This so called pension board voted the retirees cola and health care benifits away ON OUR BEHALF. Well thank god they looked out for us even tho the law says to leave us alone.
We took them to court a great lawfirm is representing us and won the 1st battle we had our colas restored by order of the court and 2 days ago we recieved backpay for 9 months. Now we are onto the restoration of our health care benifits that our great union 1001 gave away. Which for 2 people non medicare will cost us 1812.00 per month and in 2017 affordable health care which is another joke. Ok get ready for this, our city lawyers that as tax payers we have to pay go against a lawfirm we also have to pay ( granted our law team will sue the city for payment but in the meantime we are sending donations in ) go ahead say it, “HUH” In fact if I’m allowed we are having a fund raiser Oct 24th and I would like to invite anyone interested to come out and it would be a great honor if Fred came out..see our Facebook page
Like I said we don’t know if we should scream or cry but at least they know not to mess with us old farts
