Illinois board moves forward with union employee pay raises

SPRINGFIELD (AP) – The Illinois Labor Relations Board is moving forward with certain salary increases for unionized state workers.

About 15,000 union members are eligible for the step increases, which are automatic raises workers receive sometime during the first decade of their careers.

The board rejected a request from Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration to hold another hearing about the issue before money is paid out, the State Journal-Register reported. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees called the administration’s move a stalling tactic.

“Our union will keep doing everything possible to make sure that employees are placed on the correct step and made whole for the increases they’ve been denied,” AFSCME Council 31 Executive Director Roberta Lynch said in a statement.
