After four years of conflict between the largest union for state workers and Governor Bruce Rauner, members of AFSCME Local 31 threw more than their fair share of support to Governor Elect J.B. Pritzker. With Rauner declaring talks with AFSCME at an impasse, there has been no sign of two sides meeting at the bargaining table.
