Members took action today to strengthen and protect your retirement benefits
Thousands of Local 1000 members are standing up and fighting for their #1 priority -- protecting their hard-earned retirement--by demanding that Wall Street banks pay back CalPERS' investment losses stemming from illegal and unethical actions.
Today, our Sacramento members rallied outside a CalPERS board meeting and then marched on a JPMorgan Chase bank in Sacramento. They were joined outside of CalPERS by CalPERS Board Member J.J. Jelincic.
After the march, the crowd gathered outside of the branch chanting, "Banks got bailed out, we got sold out!" They also left messages with post-it notes on the windows of the bank letting them know that we will be back - we must keep the pressure on the banks and take back the money they owe us.
