Together, as a union, we won a huge victory for school employees across the state yesterday. After five years of legal maneuvers, the Court of Appeals ruled in our favor today on the lawsuit attempting to get members a refund - with interest - for the 3 percent retirement payments they made in 2010-12. Long after other public employees had already received their money back from similarly unconstitutional laws, school employees' funds were held in escrow awaiting this decision.
