Retired IL state workers contacted about working during possible AFSCME strike

Public-sector unions are not your friend. They may soon strike in Illinois. But the Land of Lincoln's reform governor is planning ahead.

From the State Journal-Register:
The administration of Gov. Bruce Rauner has been contacting retired state employees to determine if they would be willing to return to work on short-term contracts in the event of a strike.

The calls apparently have been made over the last several weeks as the Rauner administration and the largest state employee union, Council 31 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, have continued negotiations on a new labor agreement.
