Movement on AFSCME/Rauner Dispute Not Expected Until 2018

The labor dispute between AFSCME represented state workers and Governor Bruce Rauner has gone quiet of late and it will remain that way a while longer. A court decision that blocked Governor Rauner from imposing labor terms has been on appeal for sometime, but it appears oral arguments won't occur until early next year. AFSCME has been working on an expired contract since mid 2015.
