Iowans To Tell Governor, Legislature – ‘Keep Your Promise, Respect Our Retirement’

Day of action to protect retirement security planned for January 23rd

Des Moines, Iowa

— Iowans will speak out at the capitol on the first day of the legislative session to call on Governor Reynolds and the legislature to keep promises made on the campaign trail and respect their retirement. Vital retirement programs have been under serious
threat recently, such as the Iowa Public Employees’ Retirement System, better known as IPERS.

More than 350,000 Iowans would have their economic security threatened if IPERS is changed, and on Monday Iowans will stand up against potential threats to their
retirement.

Monday’s press conference will be hosted by the Iowa Coalition for Retirement Security, in partnership with AFSCME Council 61, the Iowa State Education Association, and the Iowa Federation of Labor AFL-CIO.

Speakers will encourage Iowans to participate in a day of action on January 23rd, which will include contacting elected officials and sharing facts about retirement security online.
