Large union gathering awaits the governor

Posted by wlpo on June 6, 2016

Union members are meeting up Monday at Jeremiah Joe Coffee in downtown Ottawa but its not to get a cup of joe.

That’s the meeting place before they head over to Ottawa City Hall for the governor’s visit. Illinois Valley Building Trade’s President Steve Conrad put out a Facebook message over the weekend calling on union members to greet the governor.

While saying he isn’t anti-union, Rauner remains at odds in negotiating a new contract with the state’s largest union, AFSCME.
