AFSCME Sends Gov. Rauner Letter To Restart Negotiations
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WRSP/WICS) —
Governor Bruce Rauner released the following statement in response to the letter:
The bi-partisan Labor Relations Board ruled unanimously that AFSCME and the state are at impasse. AFSCME’s latest framework does not bridge the more than $3 billion gap between the parties. Instead of this superficial letter, we invite AFSCME to drop its litigation blocking the administration’s last, best, and final offer and work with us on implementing common sense proposals like earning overtime for working over 40 hours in a week, using volunteers, and creating workplace safety programs.
