Rauner Administration Collecting Names To Replace AFSCME Members
If the state's largest union decides to strike, it's unclear whether the people who replace those workers will keep permanent positions or not.
According to the State Journal-Register, Governor Bruce Rauner's administration has begun collecting names of people willing to work if AFSCME members strike.
The administration suggested online that replacement positions could turn into permanent jobs.
Whether those people would get a permanent state job could be another issue for the courts to decide.
Union members have voted to give its bargaining committee authority to call a strike at some point in the future.
