Unused Sick Days
The head of the Better Government Association is giving the Emanuel administration high marks for changing a controversial sick day policy at the City Colleges of Chicago.
He could be the king of double-dipping in Chicago. The Better Government Association says what’s happening with Chicago State University President Wayne Watson proves the public pension system is broken.
Action is being taken to stop millions of dollars in payouts to Chicago Public Schools employees who retire or resign.
Chicago Public Schools officials said Tuesday that they are seeking to implement a new sick day policy for non-union workers, ending a decades-long practice that has cost the system tens of millions of dollars a year.
