State employee labor unions testified Monday against a resolution that would set limits on wage increases in upcoming negotiations.

But when or if lawmakers might be asked to vote on the resolution is unclear. At the conclusion of the House Revenue Committee hearing, Chairman Rep. John Bradley, D-Marion, said there is no timetable for further action. He said he will confer with the ranking Republican on the committee, Rep. David Harris of Arlington Heights, to come up with a number for raises that both Republicans and Democrats feel is acceptable.

“We don’t have a specific timetable as to when we will reconvene,” Bradley said.
