Illinois lawmakers are once again considering an intervention in state labor negotiations.
Contract talks have stalled between Illinois' biggest government labor union -- AFSCME -- and Governor Bruce Rauner.
Rauner wants the state Labor Relations Board to decide whether negotiations are at an impasse; the union says that’s premature.
Under legislation approved by a House committee yesterday, such failed negotiations would be resolved by an arbitrator on whom both sides agree.
AFSCME says it’s willing to give up its right to strike to get that change.
