"Truth And Fiction" SFERS Board Member Herb Meiberger Exposes IFPTE 21 Muscat Hit Video On His Record
The IFPTE Local 21 run by executive director Bob Muscat has produced a hit video attacking Herb Meiberger who is a board member of the San Francisco Employees Retirement System SFERS. Meiberger has opposed more of the city employee pension funds being invested in speculative hedge funds. Meiberger explains what is really going on with the "charges" against him by Bob Muscat. Both The IFPTE Local 21 leadership, the Police Officers Association POA and the Management Employees Association MEA have pushed for more hedge fund investments and now want to remove the only non-fire and police representative on the pension board representing all San Francisco city employees. They and the POA also tried to bully Meiberger to drop out of the race. Muscat, the MEA and the SFPOA also supported taking away the COLA that city workers have won for their pensions in a so called "reform pension" initiative that particularly hurt low paid CCSF workers which actually cut their pay by cost shifting the costs of the pension and healthcare on their backs.. They are now spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to remove Meiberger from the board and this could include money from hedge fund operators who would benefit from kicking Meiberger off the board. This presentation was made to City and County workers on December 16, 2016.
