Union Influence Debated During GOP Gubernatorial Primary Forum


Three of the four Republican candidates for governor are defending public sector unions… while the fourth says he wouldn’t get rid of them, but would work to diminish their influence.

 

The role of unions for state workers and teachers was one of the big issues in Tuesday’s debate in Springfield among the four GOP contenders, heard live on 970 WMAY.

 

Bruce Rauner says public sector unions are a “corrupting influence” on government… and says he would restrict their power by allowing workers to choose whether or not to join those unions.

 

His three rivals… Bill Brady, Kirk Dillard, and Dan Rutherford… all said the government unions have value, but promised to take a firm stand in negotiations with them.
