California Professional Firefighters

Protecting Retirement Security

As it did during the 2005 pension protection battle, CPF is helping to spearhead a united front of working people coming together to fight these new attacks.

CPF is one of the founding members of Californians for Health Care and Retirement Security (CHCRS). That’s the same group that led the successful fight to block Governor Schwarzenegger’s pension privatization plan.

This page is designed to keep you current on the latest efforts to preserve your retirement security ... and what you need to know to fight for it at the state and local levels:
