Detroit employees take third cut in bankruptcy

(WXYZ) - Detroit city employees will have their pensions frozen on July 1 and will move into a hybrid pension under an order from Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr. 

Several employees spoke out against the imposed move during an informational meeting at city hall. 

For them it means less money and they were informed of this change only a week ago. 

It is the third major cut for active employees already hit with pension and health care cuts. 

Detroit has 9,000 active employees and 23,000 retirees. They are voting on the Plan of Adjustment in Bankruptcy.
