Illinois Tollway Authority no longer forced to hire unionized contractors

Tri-State Tollway, Des Plaines, IL
Like Illinois' Republican reform governor Bruce Rauner--I'm not anti-union. I'm pro-worker and pro-taxpayer. Both received some good news yesterday.

From the Daily Herald:
Illinois tollway directors voted Thursday to eliminate a 21-year agreement requiring contractors to hire collective bargaining units, reflecting Gov. Bruce Rauner's push to reduce union influence in the state.

"The governor believes the tollway made the correct decision which will save tollway users money," Rauner spokesman Lance Trover said.
It will.
