In this Aug. 15, 2012 file photo, union members, supporters and labor leaders boo Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn on Governor's Day at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield, Ill. As Quinn and the largest state employees' union remain deadlocked on a contract agreement, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees has begun preparing its members for a possible strike. Quinn is unclear about whether his administration is making preparations to run government in case of a work stoppage, but a strike doesn't mean paralysis of all state functions. AP Photo/
