AFSCME Pushing For Promised 2011 Pay Raises

AFSCME is pressing Illinois lawmakers to find the money for millions of dollars in back pay owed to thousands of state workers.


At issue are the pay raises that workers were promised in 2011.


They finally started getting the extra money earlier this year, but the union says the average affected employee is still owed $4,000 for the two years that the raises were withheld.


Henry Bayer with AFSCME says if lawmakers can go to court to fight for their own back pay, they should be able to allocate the $110 million needed to make good on those raises.
