Next General Meeting on
Our final General Meeting for 2015
will be held on Tuesday, December 8 at
4:45pm, at Cougar Lanes in the
basement of the MUC. Light
refreshments will be served. We
will have access to the facility so
you'll have plenty of time to bowl
after the meeting!
The final read and approval of the
revised Constitution is scheduled.
Join AFSCME in a Rally
together! State employees will come together for
rallies in each region of the state for a fair
contract. The Rauner Administration’s
contract demands would hurt the services we
provide and drive down our standard of living.
We’re saying “NO!” to:
• Big hikes in our costs for health care
• A freeze on wages, including no step increases
• An end to protections against irresponsible
privatization of public services
• Putting politics into our paychecks with
so-called “merit pay” schemes
We’ll join with AFSCME members from local
governments and state universities, members of
other unions, and those in our communities who
are being hurt by Rauner’s refusal to work
toward a fair budget, his harsh cuts to programs
that aid children, the elderly and the disabled,
and his fierce hostility toward working people
having a voice through our unions.
Join us on Thursday, December 10 at 5pm at the
IBEW Local 309, 2009 Mall Street in Collinsville
for the rally.
