Possible Strike for AFSCME

ILLINOIS (WIFR) -- Members of one of Illinois’ largest government unions are being asked to hunker down, and be financially prepared for a strike.

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees has been at odds with Governor Pat Quinn over contract negotiations. AFSCME says Quinn is asking them to pay too much for health care and a strike might be the only way to get their message across.
