A lot of uncertainty these days for Illinois members of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees who work for state government.   

The union remains without a contract.  A strike has been authorized, even though no date has been set and there’s decision if it will occur. 

And, the Rauner Administration has launched a website for people to apply for jobs in the case union workers walk off the job.

The State Journal-Register’s Doug Finke took a look at some of those issues.  He joined us to provide an update.
