State contract ratification vote starts June 12

On May 31 the AFSCME State Bargaining Committee reached a tentative agreement with the Pritzker Administration on a new contract.

After four long years of Bruce Rauner’s adamant refusal to negotiate in good faith and his unrelenting attacks on state workers, state employees can once again have the economic security and job protections that a union contract provides.

Continue to stand in solidarity—come out and vote!

Ratification meetings begin this Wednesday, June 12 and continue through June 21 in AFSCME local unions across the state. 

Here’s information all AFSCME members in state government should know:

The AFSCME Bargaining Committee unanimously recommends a YES vote on this tentative agreement. We’ve come this far by standing together. Be sure to come out and vote.
