Rauner Wants AFSCME to Pay $2M a Day for Contract Delay
Governor Rauner says Illinois' largest public employee union should pay for dragging its feet over contract talks. The governor filed an unfair labor practices complaint yesterday against AFSCME. Rauner wants a judge to order the union to pay two-million dollars a day for delaying a new contract for state workers. AFSCME says it has the legal right to delay a 'final offer' from the governor, and they are using it.
