Arbitrator rules Quinn, prisons violated union contract; facilities to stay open

Two major Illinois prisons that Gov. Pat Quinn wanted shuttered by Friday will stay open at least another month after an arbitrator ordered the administration to properly negotiate with state workers over the impact of the closures.

Arbitrator Steven Bierig found that the state departments of Corrections and Juvenile Justice violated the contract with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and ordered the two sides to reach an agreement on ground rules for the shut downs.

Noting the state’s budget crisis — the reason Quinn wants the facilities closed — Bierig decreed an arrangement be reached within a month.
