Louisiana educators pension checks

Posted: Updated:

Louisiana educators are urging lawmakers to protect their pension checks. Members of Red River United's Teachers Union held a news conference Thursday afternoon to talk about budget cuts that are not only being felt in the classroom.
 The National Public Pension Coalition is also feeling the impact.  They are also concerned
 About retirement of firefighters, Police officers and other public workers who don't receive social security.

 "part of going to work and doing the things they do is to know is that at the end of their tenure as a public educator 
there would be a retirement that would be a defined benefit," said Jackie Lansdale with Red River United

Similar events are taking place in other cities across the state including Monroe, Lafayette and Lake Charles.
