Most city workers spend decades in public service to build up modest pensions. But for former labor leader Dennis Gannon, the keys to securing a public pension were one day on the city payroll and some help from the Daley administration.
And his city pension is more than modest. It's the highest of any retired union leader: $158,000. That's roughly five times greater than what the typical retired city worker receives.
In fact, his pension is so high that it exceeds federal limits and required the city pension fund to file special paperwork with the Internal Revenue Service to give it to him.

Par for the course for public unions. Except for teachers, of course. If unions really cared about their members, and weren't self-serving disgusting bags of vomit, the starting salary for a public school teacher in my neck of the woods wouldn't be $27k./TOA

Chicago is a corrupt mob town, and the unions are in cahoots.
Screw the unions. When I see a product that says "Union made" it DOES NOT go in my basket.
