AFSCME and Gov. Quinn Blame Each Other for Planned Layoffs at DCFS


AFSCME workers are urging Governor Pat Quinn to hold off on laying off hundreds of workers in the Department of Children and Family Services, saying the job cuts will jeopardize the children served by the agency.

 

But Quinn says the layoffs, scheduled to take effect on October 1st, are really the union’s fault.

 

Quinn says AFSCME is to blame because it has gone to court to block Quinn’s attempt to close two prisons and several other corrections facilities.

 

Quinn says he planned to use that money to make up a shortfall in the DCFS budget and keep those 400 employees on the job.
