Contract Negotiations Between AFSCME And State Continue


The current contract between AFSCME and state government will remain in effect for now, while the two sides bring in a mediator to help them negotiate a new deal.

 

The union and the state are locked in contentious negotiations that have been complicated by Governor Pat Quinn’s plans to close some state facilities, and by an ongoing legal battle over promised pay raises that Quinn was withheld for budgetary reasons.

 

A Cook County judge is scheduled to rule Monday on whether the state must keep its promise to give out those raises.

 

There has been no meeting scheduled yet between the state, the union and the mediator to discuss a new contract.
