AFSCME picket set at Dwight prison


DWIGHT — Keeping Dwight Correctional Center open will be the focus of an informational picket from 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday at the prison.

The event is organized by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which represents many of the prison’s workers. The union plans the picket as part of a larger effort to oppose various budget cuts proposed by Gov. Pat Quinn.
