Judge Blocks Quinn Administration From Closing Prisons For Another Month


A judge in Southern Illinois has issued a temporary restraining order that blocks the Quinn administration from any moves to close prisons, youth centers or transition centers around the state.

 

That ruling comes in the ongoing case filed by AFSCME, which claims that Governor Pat Quinn’s facilities closure plans violate the union contract and endanger the safety of workers. The restraining order enforces an arbitrator’s ruling last week that the closures should not proceed until the changes are collectively bargained with the union.

 

The order halts, for the time being, closure plans for facilities in Decatur, Dwight, and five other cities… including the Tamms supermax prison.
