Tell Gov. Rauner: Do Your Job!
March 30, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Stop Holding Illinois Hostage—Pass A Fair Budget Now!
Don’t Dictate, Negotiate a Fair Contract with State Workers!
Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner is hosting a “Governor’s Dinner” to raise money for himself and other Republican politicians—charging $40,000 for a “Gold Level” private reception.
We won’t be buying any tickets, but we’ll be there—to tell Governor Rauner to “DO YOUR JOB, negotiate with state workers and sign a budget now!”
Join Illinois Working Together, the Chicago Federation of Labor, AFSCME Council 31, SEIU Illinois, the Illinois Federation of Teachers, Illinois Education Association, the UAW, Laborers International Union, Citizen Action/Illinois, Arise Chicago, GEO Local 6297 and more.
For two years, Rauner has failed to propose a balanced budget and refused to work with legislators on a compromise. From students to seniors, he’s holding hostage the people of Illinois.
Meanwhile, Rauner has failed to settle contracts with five unions that represent the overwhelming majority of women and people of color in state government. For the past year he’s refused to negotiate at all with AFSCME, the largest union of public service workers in state government, instead pushing to impose his harsh terms!
