Negotiations between the Rauner Administration and the largest union for state workers have turned into a war in the court of public opinion. 
 
Anders Lindall with AFSCME Local Council 31 is hopeful the temporary stay that has prevented Governor Rauner from imposing contract terms will stick around a while longer.
 
 
While union members voted overwhelmingly in favor of a strike authorization vote, Lindall says picket lines are not a favored option.
 
 
81% of AFSCME members supported a strike authorization vote.
