Thousands of Protestors March to Illinois Capitol

Local News

Thousands of protesters descend on Springfield, Illinois on Wednesday to rally against Republican governor Bruce Rauner.

They’re demanding he drop his anti-union agenda.

A coalition of union groups and community organizers flooded the streets and called for a fair state budget.

This is just days after Governor Rauner vetoed a bill that would have appointed a third party to negotiate state union contracts.
