Gov. Bruce Rauner Unbothered by AFSCME's Potential to Strike

Contract Negotiations in Limbo Between Gov. Rauner & AFSCME

The ongoing battle between Governor Rauner and the largest union in the state is heating up as the state's chief executive reacts to a possible strike by AFSCME.
   

This week, Rauner spoke in the Quad Cities about the process of finalizing a contract for state employees.

"We're gonna do this, we have to do this and I hope you don't strike. I don't want you to strike, but we're probably not going to miss you if you go," says Gov. Rauner.
   

AFSCME says it's asked Rauner to come back to the negotiating table for months.
   

The State Labor Board has declared the sides are at an impasse and the issue is making its way through the courts.
   

"Rauner doesn't care who gets hurt in the process," says the Illinois Democratic County Chairmen's Association.
