Local 150 behind yet another anti-Rauner move
Friday, Oct 10, 2014
* Back in the GOP primary, the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 was the earliest and most enthusiastic supporters of the “Stop Rauner” movement. Subscribers know a bit more about the personal reasons behind this, but the political angle was totally genuine. Rauner is for “right to work,” and while 150 has lots of Republican members, that’s a killer issue for them.
$30K is chump change, but if 150 or other unions start kicking in more money, they might be able to cause some real trouble for Rauner.
