HAGAN'S HIT LIST

Former UFOA President Al Hagan is constantly updating us on the whats going on with your Pensions. So we decided to feature Al's Updates here on this page.
Below click on the links that Al has sent us since January of 2016. 
It's a good way to educate yourself about Pension Reform and
what is really happening
with "OUR" money.
Please check back frequently as we feature these Pension articles. 
Many Thanks to Al Hagan for his concern and help

and Please get Pro-Active when it comes to your money!

2017 Update
So I bet you thought it was all a bad dream-that talk of Pension Cuts
on our precious and guaranteed Pension Benefits.
Well it is all too real. The latest group to experience it:
The NY Teamsters, among them UPS Drivers-Local 804,
of which I (Bill Schillinger) was once a part of. They are talking of reducing existing Pension Benefits to Retired Drivers-WHAT?
NO WAY?
Can they do that?
Read this article featured on our Home Page

New York’s Teamsters May Have Their Pensions Cut. What Went Wrong?

Time to get Politically Active! Contact the UFA or the UFOA and tell them you want to volunteer. This is the year that places the Constitutional Convention on the Ballot. A simple NO vote stops it in its tracks, a YES vote and the process continues. 
Let's all get together to educate the public
on placing an X in the "NO" Box on the ballot.
Let's make it a Happy Year on November 7th, 2017.

2017 IS COMING!!!
It's the year when a Constitutional Convention might appear on the ballot,
with the chance to undo the
Pension Protection we have enjoyed since
-November 8th, 1938-
NYS Constitution Article V Section 7
[Membership in retirement systems; benefits not to be diminished nor impaired]
§7. After July first, nineteen hundred forty, membership in any pension or retirement system of the state or of a civil division thereof shall be a contractual relationship, the benefits of which shall not be diminished or impaired. (New. Adopted by Constitutional Convention of 1938 and approved by vote of the people
November 8, 1938.)
