Letter from Governor Rauner on AFSCME Contract Negotiations

Dear Friends, 

I have had a lot of comments and calls on SB1229, many positive and many negative. Many of my friends who work for the state are being told they will be forced to strike. I asked for assurance from the Governor’s office that this is not the case. Below you will see a letter, with the Governor’s signature, that explicitly states that he wants to extend the tolling agreement indefinitely. This means no lockout, no strike, and continued operations under the prior contract. Please read the entire letter.

Please feel free to review the letter below and call me if you would like to discuss this further at 618-242-8115 or email me at Bryant@ILHouseGOP.org
