Unions seek summit with Gov. Quinn, legislative leaders

Crain’s Chicago Business

Illinois’ public employee unions are asking for a meeting with Gov. Pat Quinn and legislative leaders to come up with an agreement on pension changes.

AFL-CIO President Michael Carrigan says in a letter to Quinn and leaders of the House and Senate that the union hopes the meeting will overcome obstacles that have blocked recent pension proposals.

The State Journal-Register reports the coalition of unions, called We Are One Illinois, will meet in Burr Ridge on Feb. 11.
