IL Unionized Government Workers benefits are “Unsustainable”

In an email to members, AFSCME says the administration wants to freeze wages for two years, among other thing. The administration was explicit in its response: “The union of state government employees fails to recognize that the salaries and benefits the average state employee receives are unsustainable and at levels far exceeding the salaries and benefits of other unionized state workers across the country.”
