You may remember the unhappiness of McHenry County Board members for being called out by Local 150 of the Interanation Union of Operating Engineers for allegedly violating the Open Meetings Act when Governor Bruce Rauner came to the Woodstock Opera House to promote his Turnaround Agenda.
Supposedly for legal bills, even though no time sheets were submitted.
Now Legislative Committee Chairman Nick Provenzano is asking that
“reforms to collective bargaining and union membership dues”
be added to the Board’s legislative agenda.
The meeting will be held on Friday, June 10th, at 8:15 AM at the Administrative Building.
The settlement the County Board approved required the following:
- payment of $25,000 to the union
- repeal of the Board resolution supporting Rauner’s platform
- agreeing not to subsequently approve a similar resolution
