Quinn and AFSCME reach a tentative contract


Springfield – A tentative contract for AFSCME has been reached with Governor Quinn.


Negotiations to reach a contract have been ongoing for more than 15 months, and 35,000 state employees have been working with out a contract. Negotiators proposed a three year agreement to AFSCME members for ratification.


Henry Baryer, executive director for AFSCME council 31, says he is pleased they were able to reach an agreement. The new agreement will protect member's standard of living, and is fair for the workers and Illinois citizens. A ratification process will begin statewide during the week of March 4th.


Quinn gave his thanks to all involved "I want to thank the women and men who have stayed at the table for more than a year for their commitment to reaching an agreement."


Details of the tentative agreement will be released after the union's membership has had the opportunity to review it.
