Luckily IMRF actually cares about transparency. Yesterday I filed a request for all the Accelerated Payments charged to the City of Bloomington because they are to chicken to change the Sick Leave Buy Back policy. Instead of the precious government employees being told the golden goose got cooked, employees are told it’s just fine to spike your pension! They already earn you more than the private sector, get better benefits, a wonderful pension – but they can steal more from the taxpayers for a SWEET retirement! They worked hard all those years, not like those icky citizens paying all the bills.
If government workers want respect:
Start respecting the people paying you!
Rant over, but you will want to join in when you see what IMRF gave me. You owe more than I reported yesterday:
Tari Renner, David Hales, and the City Council have proven they don’t care about taxpayers.
It may be tough to take this ridiculous perk away, but your rulers prefer to have happy employees.
Of course, the media will ignore this abuse too. I’m sure they have been instructed to ignore facts.
Powell: Fire Inspector
McDannald: Heavy Equipment Operator
Walsh: Solid Waste Truck Driver
Cummings: Director Water
The City has known about this problem since the law changed in 2012. Union contracts should have been changed. Non union employees should have been told the PARTY IS OVER! Neither has happened.
Raising taxes is so much easier.
