Great Lakes Radio News UpdateMARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) A Michigan Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments June 12 in the lawsuit from state employee unions over a law requiring employees in the old pension system to contribute 4 percent of their pay to the system if they want to remain in the pension system.

A lower court ruled in September that the 2011 law is unconstitutional. The law requires long-time state employees in the old pension system to contribute 4 percent of their salary to the system or have their pension benefit capped at their current years of service and be switched to a 401(k) for any future retirement benefit.
