Call to Action

From our Region 4 IEA Office:

We’ve been asked to help our friends at AFSCME lobby our legislators in support of HB 580, a bill that would allow AFSCME to have their contract dispute with Gov. Rauner decided by a neutral arbitrator.  The Governor is basically refusing to move off of his anti-union, anti-middle class agenda.

 Please call your legislators at 1-888-912-5959 and ask them to support HB 580.
