Rauner and Teamsters agree to contract terms

Despite rhetoric by some public sector union representatives that Gov. Rauner is attempting to “union bust,” the administration and the Teamsters agreed to a new four-year contract for more than 4,600 state employees. 

The Teamsters represent a significant segment of the state’s Illinois Department of Transportation workforce. 

The new agreement was lauded by both sides as being a “good deal” for taxpayers and the members of the bargaining unit.
