Firefighters Union Releases Video Arguing Its Position In Pension Debate
(Memphis) On Monday, the Memphis Firefighters Union threw another log on the heated debate concerning pension reform.
Both fire and police unions are at odds with the city over proposed changes to the retirement plan.
Financial experts have said the city cannot sustain the generous pension plan currently in place, so the union paid for its own study — one with a more favorable conclusion — and released a video on YouTube arguing its position.
“All this city is trying to do is generate more revenue by paying nothing to give it to big business. You’re not getting any break as a tax payer.”
The union says it plans to make more videos over the next several months.
