Quinn, state mum on strike preparations
Convincing assurances are lacking
The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees is certainly rattling the saber when it comes to the idea of a strike by state workers.
Its most recent memo to members updating contract talks said, “There’s no longer much reason to believe that this contract can be settled at the bargaining table.”
It blamed the hard-line stand by Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration on things like a 3-year general wage freeze, a partial freeze on anniversary raises, and higher health insurance payments.
