AFSCME Makes ''Modest'' Contract Offer, Says Talks Are Not At Impasse

AFSCME says state workers will continue on the job as usual for the foreseeable future… despite Governor Pat Quinn’s move this week to terminate the state’s contract with the union. 


Under state law, the contract terms remain in place until there’s a determination that contract talks have reached an impasse.  AFSCME spokesman Anders Lindall says there is no impasse… and notes the union just this week submitted another contract offer, one which Lindall describes as “modest,” but which he says will allow workers to keep pace with the cost of living. 


Lindall downplays talk of a strike, something which has never happened in the 40 years that AFSCME has represented state workers… but he doesn’t rule out the possibility.
