05pp Illinois Union Holdout-6

FILE - In this May 8, 2013 filer photo, Service Employees International Union members rally in the capitol rotunda before a Senate hearing on pension legislation at the state Capitol in Springfield Ill. The ability of Illinois unions to withstand the pressures that broke down their colleagues in other states could be tested during a veto session beginning Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013, as lawmakers try for the umpteenth time to confront the nearly $100 billion shortfall in the public-employee pension system, the largest in the nation. The Legislature is under pressure to consider slashing pension benefits or requiring employees to contribute more to their own retirement funds or to retire at a later age.
