Teachers across Connecticut rally to protect their futures
Teachers across Connecticut are rallying Tuesday for changes to how their pensions are funded.
The Connecticut Education Association says the teachers' retirement fund faces an unfunded liability of more than $5 billion. According to a member of the Statford Teacher's Union, teachers pay in 6 percent for their pension but the state has not been kicking in its share. The teachers are hoping their demonstrations will get lawmakers to pass a resolution to amend the state constitution so that their pensions are fully funded annually.
Any changes to the constitution would have to be approved by voters in the fall.
