Labor Board Compliance Officer issues order on step increases

An Illinois Labor Relations Board Compliance Officer has issued an order in the matter of the state employee step increases frozen by Governor Rauner in 2015.

AFSCME challenged the freeze and won an appellate court ruling directing the ILRB to shape a remedy that would restore the step increases. A Labor Board Compliance Officer was charged with developing the specific steps needed to comply. Yesterday the Compliance Officer issued a "Compliance Order Directing a Hearing" which provides:

The order sets a hearing before a Labor Board administrative law judge on "all disputed issues" which will take place after the production of all of the records and documents required by the order which are due by October 1.
