From the State Journal-Register:
Gov. Bruce Rauner's administration is starting a new compensation system for some state workers that includes merit pay and bonuses for saving taxpayers money, a plan the former businessman says will make government more efficient.That union is AFSCME Council 31.
But Illinois' largest public-employee union is balking at the Republican's idea, saying it's "ripe for abuse" and political favoritism and that bonuses shouldn't replace regular salary increases as Rauner has proposed.
With its outrageous pension demands--which to be fair Illinois politicians agreed to--public sector unions have been abusing taxpayers for decades.
