Federal Court: Quinn Can Block Raises

A federal appeals court agrees that Governor Pat Quinn has the right to withhold scheduled pay raises for state workers, even though the raises were agreed to under contract.


The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals found that the state cannot be compelled to spend money that was not appropriated.


That was Quinn’s rationale for canceling the raises, saying he could not pay them because the funding was not approved by the General Assembly.


AFSCME says it will continue to fight for the raises.
