Union Members Call Out Illinois Governor at Rally
Tuesday's protest comes the day ahead of Quinn's annual State of the State speech, where he's expected to talk about Illinois' pension crisis. Quinn has been locked in several battles with AFSCME. The union opposes efforts to reduce their retirement benefits and increase their health insurance costs, which have been a central theme on pension talks. Also, the union is angry that Quinn withheld pay raises provided by the last contract.
