An Emergency Pension Update From Pres. Mike Shields - FOP LOCAL 7

President Michael Shields and the Board of Directors are urging all FOP members and FOP family members to reach out to their legislators and tell them to vote NO on Senate Bill 1673.
While this bill currently does not include language that would affect any Lodge #7 member, we need to unite with our Illinois Union Brothers and Sisters in the fight to protect all Illinois public pensions. This is the first in many battles that could surely have an impact on OUR Pensions if this legislation is passed.
We must let our legislators know that we are a powerful voting bloc that will be heard. The two easiest ways to contact your representatives are by calling 1-888-412-6570 or by clicking this Contact Your Representatives Link.
Please visit the We Are One Illinois website.
Please forward this message to anyone who will assist us in this fight.
