Williams: State should keep compensation promises to all workers



briefcase newspapersIt didn’t take long.

The morning after we blew the whistle on those biased anti-pension newspaper editorials, the Tacoma News Tribune this morning (Nov. 1) ran a guest editorial from former state Rep. Brendan Williams defending the Federation and Retirees’ Supreme Court fight for gainsharing and the PERS 1 Uniform Cost-of-Living Adjustment.

Williams, who had a front-row seat when the Legislature repealed gainsharing in 2007, asked, “Do we want a bait-and-switch government?”

“As private citizens, we are not free to lure, and entrap, people into commitments we will then break — telling our victims they should ignore what we said. Justice demands more.”
