Gov says union contract saves $900M
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — An administration official says Gov. Pat Quinn will spend part of his budget address crediting a contract agreement with Illinois' largest union for $900 million in healthcare savings.
Quinn and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 31 reached an agreement last week for a three-year deal after negotiating 15 months.
The tentative deal requires state workers to pay more toward healthcare and retirees to pay health insurance premiums for the first time.
