(Springfield, IL) — Governor Rauner has said that while he doesn’t want a strike by the state’s largest union, he’d be willing to take one, and now it appears his administration is making strike contingency plans. “CapitoFax” reports that one retired state worker’s wife says he got a call from an office staffing company asking if he’d be interested in coming to work for the state in the event there’s a strike. The governor has asked the state labor board to declare talks with AFSCME at an impasse, which would force the union to vote on the administration’s last offer.
