Join the Fight for Fairness at a rally near you

11/18/2015
It’s clear that Governor Rauner is on a mission to strip teachers, state employees, and all working people of the right to have a voice on the job. He wants to weaken unions and he's holding the state budget hostage to try to get his way, despite the harm he is causing to Illinois families and communities.

The rights of ALL working people are at risk, but state government employees are on the frontline in this battle because they negotiate directly with the Governor for their union contract.

That's why AFSCME is urging all union members to come together at regional Rallies for Fairness across Illinois from December 5 - 10. It’s time for Governor Rauner to drop his extreme demands and move Illinois forward.

Let’s all come together to demand fairness and tell the Governor that enough is enough!

Please plan to attend one of these rallies near you with your co-workers, family, and friends:
