AFSCME To Talk Strike If Contract Negotiations Continue to Stall


If contract talks between Governor Pat Quinn and the largest state employees union don’t show any progress this week, AFSCME says it will start talking to its members about a possible strike.

 

Henry Bayer says his members are frustrated and angry about what they see as an unprecedented assault by the administration.

 

Quinn has said the state’s fiscal crisis requires everyone to sacrifice.

 

A walkout would involve most of the 40,000 state employees who belong to AFSCME, but would also raise the possibility that other unions might refuse to cross picket lines.
