Presentations were made by IRTA officers including President Dave Davison, Vice President Roger Hampton, IRTA Executive Director Jim Bachman, and several members of the IRTA staff from Springfield.
The point was made by Jim Bachman that unless we as citizens of Illinois are directly affected by the budget stalemate and its financial implications, we aren't really too concerned about state budgets or the shortfall of state payments.

Union Pension Proposal

IRTA executive director Jim Bachman called the changes "clearly unconstitutional."
"The legislation may be less draconian than the bill sent over last week by the House of Representatives, but it still fails the test of constitutionality," Bachman said in Tuesday's statement. "If our organization sits back without a fight and allows changes to the spirit of our state's laws governing enforceable contracts, then no agreement will ever again be safe from arbitrary dissolution under the law." Bachman noted the IRTA created a legal defense fund last year to be used to challenge pension legislation it believed to be unconstitutional.


TRIP Information - Winnebago County Retired Teachers Association

"The IRTA believes that not funding T.R.I.P. is not only unfair it is unconstitutional," IRTA Executive Director Jim Bachman said.
"Retired educators do pay premiums, anywhere between $42 and $793 for their coverage, so they are participating," said James Bachman, IRTA spokesman. "Part of TRIP is also that school districts and active teachers pay in." The state's portion of TRIP funding is about 24 percent of the approximately $451 million program. The appropriations bill signed by Rauner last year to fund primary and secondary education included TRIP coverage, Bachman said. Bachman said the governor's action to cut insurance for retired teachers conflicts with his contention that K-12 education is the most important state expense. "I think it's the total opposite," Bachman said. "It will take the combined support of all Illinois retired teachers to combat another threat," IRTA Executive Director Jim Bachman said. In 2015, the IRTA successfully defended an unconstitutional assault on pension benefits that were put in place by then Governor Quinn when he signed Senate Bill 1 into law. "Raiding future health benefits is theft, and it must be called out as such," Bachman said. "It will take the combined support of all Illinois retired teachers to combat this new and urgent threat," Bachman concluded. February 22, 2014This is the latest information concerning our lawsuit related to our pension benefits being reduced which was shared with the Legislative Committee of IRTA on Thursday (Feb 20th) of this week by our part time lobbyist, Andrew Bodewes and IRTA Executive Director, Jim Bachman. Legislative Update: Andrew Bodewes and Jim Bachman told that the focus of the legislative program at this time is on pursuing health care issues. IRTA Executive Director Jim Bachman spoke to the North Lake Shore Retired Teachers in Des Plaines this afternoon. Pensions and healthcare were addressed. Bachman reiterated the recommendation of IRTA that retirees remain with one of the State of Illinois plans (United Healthcare or Humana) at least through 2014. He addressed the anxiety that the State of Illinois United Healthcare Advantage plan would not offer the same services as Medicare or that the plan would deny claims that Medicare would approve - Bachman strongly rejected both premises . Bachman also stressed that unlike all other Advantage Plans which have negotiated reduced fees with providers, the State of IL plan pays doctors and institutions the same exact amount as Medicare . He also explained that providers need to understand how the State of IL plans work; thus, retirees are urged to contact United Healthcare (UHC) and ask that they contact their doctor or hospital to provide them with plan information: 888-223-1092 (Group #12809).
