IFT APPLAUDS GOVERNOR PRITZKER'S PRO-WORKER ACTIONS ON FIRST DAY IN OFFICE

Jan 15, 2019

IFT President Dan Montgomery issued the following statement in response:

“By signing agreements that ensure fair pay for state workers and move toward pay equity for women, Governor Pritzker has shown more respect for workers and our unions on his first day in office than Bruce Rauner did during his entire term. 

“We applaud Governor Pritzker for making sure the state fulfills its end of the bargain in negotiated contracts, and we encourage that deliberate steps be taken to address the back-pay issue.

“We look forward to continuing to work with the new administration to improve the lives of Illinois workers, provide high-quality public education and services for all, and ensure that the wealthiest pay their fair share to help run our great state. It truly is a new day in Illinois.”
