Legislative Strategy
During each session of the General Assembly, the IL AFL-CIO researches thousands of bills and amendments and works with affiliated unions to develop to a coordinated and united legislative strategy and agenda for the Illinois Labor movement. 

Educating lawmakers is vital to ensure labor’s voice is heard in the State Capitol and in Congress.  

Voting Record
Each election cycle, the State Federation compiles the thousands of votes taken in the General Assembly and grades legislators on their support of Labor’s core issues.  The State Federation also compiles and grades a legislative questionnaire for non-incumbent candidates to gauge their support of issues important to working families.
The voting record and legislative questionnaires are used to educate union members and are vital to gauge the support our elected officials have for working women and men.
