Chicago area Electricians union official resigns amidst pension flap


The head of one of the biggest unions in the city has resigned amid allegations of pension double dipping.


The executive board of the 15,000-member International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 134 on Monday accepted the resignation of Tim Foley, the unions’s business manager, according to a press release.


“IBEW Local 134 members come first and have historically come first,” Foley is quoted as saying in the release. “Placing each of the 15,000 members and their families ahead of me is the easy part of my decision to resign. Recent focus in news reports has impacted how we are perceived by the public. Our journeymen are the very best because of the schooling and training they’ve completed, and the focus needs to laser in on how their efforts and skills lead to jobs getting done on schedule and on budget.”

What I just heard on the news is they can keep the City pension or
the Union pension - not both.
Another good "bureaucrat" at work!
(Well; not that good - got caught!)
