Union Leader-Librarian-Prevails in suit against Retirement System

Former National Education Association – Shawnee Mission president Nancy Fritz has prevailed in her effort to get the Kansas Public Employee Retirement System (KPERS) to give her service credit for the time she spent leading the teachers union.
Nancy Fritz served as the head of the Shawnee Mission chapter of the National Education Association until 2015.

Nancy Fritz, a librarian who had worked for the district for 27 years when she took the NEA president position, filed suit against KPERS last fall after the retirement system informed her that it would not be counting the five years she spent as head of the union toward her retirement account. During that time, KPERS claimed, Fritz was no longer an employee of the district, but of the union.
