CHICAGO (AP) — The Quinn administration has terminated the contract between the state of Illinois and its largest public employee union.
Assistant Budget Director Abdon Pallasch (AB’-dun PAL–lish) said Tuesday that after 11 months of bargaining, state officials informed leaders of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees there will be no additional extensions of a contract covering 40,000 workers that expired in June.
I’ll believe this bullshit when hell freezes over.
This isn’t a step in the right direction, this is an impasse over how the graft is divided, mark my words.
This IS The People’s Republik of Illinois we’re talking about here. I still have hope we’ll go down in history as the only state to have three governors in federal prison simultaneously.
