The IGFOA does not advocate on or for specific outcomes of legislation or other proposals. Accordingly, the IGFOA takes no position on information disseminated, neither encouraging or discouraging action, and leaving the decision on how to proceed with individual members.
On Friday, July 20, the Illinois Attorney General’s Office issued guidance (linked here for your convenience) regarding the rights and duties of public employees, public employers and public employee unions in light of the United States Supreme Court’s Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Council 31 ruling fair share fees unconstitutional.
The guidance provides information on payroll and dues collection, collective action rights, access to member information and other resources that may be of use for public employees, employers and public employee unions.
