2017 House Bill 5368: Ban school and union “pension spiking” deals, and more
Introduced by Rep. Pamela Hornberger (R) on December 13, 2017
To prohibit public school arrangements in which a school employee works full time for a teachers union but remains a school employee for purposes of collecting a government pension. The provision would also apply to pensions credits earned by school employees paid to do union work on school time. Recent news reports have exposed how the recent presidents of the state’s largest teacher union were paid by the union but remained school employees "on leave" for many years, thereby "spiking" their government pension payouts to six-figure amounts.   Official Text and Analysis.
