Educators file class action suit

Five members of the Michigan Education Association have filed a class-action suit, which “seeks to overturn a provision that requires school employees who don’t retire this summer to start paying an extra 3 percent of their compensation into a fund for retiree health care …” according to the Associated Press.

However, according to the story, the “suit doesn’t challenge a provision that gives slightly higher pension benefits to school employees who retire this summer.”
