Parties Issue Public Thanks to FMCS for Role in Rhode Island Pension Settlement Talks
 
 
Release Date: 2/17/2014

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Governor Lincoln D. Chafee, General Treasurer Gina M. Raimondo and plaintiffs challenging changes to Rhode Island’s state-administered pension system (on February 14) issued the following joint statement:

“More than one year ago, Superior Court Judge Sarah Taft-Carter ordered the parties involved in numerous pension lawsuits into mediation. With the help of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, the parties to this litigation have worked collaboratively on a proposed resolution.

“The settlement agreement marks an important first step forward, and the beginning of a process that will benefit all Rhode Islanders. It is a proposal that we all support and jointly offer to the General Assembly, members of the retirement system, and to the public."
 
In a separate statement of its own, the FMCS commended the parties for their professionalism, hard work and commitment to the negotiating process.
