Quinn and Unions Battle Over Planned Prison Closures


The Quinn administration and AFSCME are now battling in two different courtrooms over plans to close two Illinois prisons and other correctional facilities.

 

This comes after an arbitrator ruled that Governor Pat Quinn should be allowed to proceed with the closure, despite union concerns that it will put prison guards in danger.

 

AFSCME has asked a Southern Illinois judge to reject the arbitrator’s finding and keep in place an injunction that is currently preventing Quinn from proceeding.

 

But lawyers for the governor have to court in Cook County, to ask a judge there to throw out the injunction and allow the closures to go forward.
