JB Pritzker, candidate for Illinois Governor in the upcoming Democratic Primary Election, spoke to the members present at the General Membership Meeting on July 28th about his plans for Illinois.
“Bruce Rauner has got to go,” Pritzker said to a cheering crowd. “Workers need someone who cares about them, and I can tell you that when I go to Springfield, I’ve got your back!”
Local 150 endorsed JB Pritzker earlier this year in the Democratic Primary election. Defeating Bruce Rauner in the upcoming election is a priority for Local 150, as it should be for all workers in Illinois.
“Since Bruce Rauner took office, he has held the state hostage in an attempt to lower wages and bust unions,” said Local 150 President-Business Manager James M. Sweeney. “JB Pritzker understands that workers are part of the solution, not part of the problem, and that’s what we need to bring back to Illinois.”
