Gov. Pat Quinn wants to cancel raises for thousands of state employees to help cope with the Illinois budget crisis.
The administration notified 14 state agencies and the affected unions that the 2 percent raises won't be paid as required by contract.
Quinn's office said Friday that lawmakers did not provide enough money in the new budget to cover raises for nearly 30,000 employees.
