Labor Board Declares Illinois Contract Talks At ‘Impasse’

The Illinois Labor Relations Board has declared contract negotiations between Gov. Bruce Rauner's administration and the largest public-employees union at an impasse.

That gives the union the opportunity to accept the terms or vote to go on strike.
