SEIU Local 721 Threatens To Sue L.A. Over Pension Reform
Service Employees International Union Local 721 President Bob Schoonover recently suggested that the union is willing to sue the city of Los Angeles if it adopts a proposal to reduce retirement benefits for new city workers. The pension plan being considered would eliminate health care benefits for workers' dependents and increase the retirement age from 55 to 65, among other things. Schoonover said the plan is "unsound and unlawful."
