Illinois Legislative Update

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

What will court decisions and pending legislation mean for your collective bargaining process?

We’ve invited state legislative representatives and local legal experts to report on Illinois and Federal pending legislation, court and other legal decisions for 2018.

Please share this event with HR Directors, Labor Relations Managers, Department Heads, Elected & Appointed Officials/Managers. This training is intended for management personnel not represented by a labor union.

Join us for what promises to be an informative and lively presentation!

John Curran – The honorable Illinois State Senator and former Vice Chairman of the DuPage County Board will speak on the topic of legislative trends in Springfield: What has happened over the past year that has impacted Illinois public employers? Who are the major players and what are their agendas? Senator Curran will discuss the state of politics and share his knowledge on the spring legislative session in Springfield.

Jim Powers – Labor relations and employment law attorney for Clark Baird Smith, LLP. Jim will share his take on recent legislative changes impacting public sector employers, and what he expects going forward. He will discuss the challenges we may anticipate on a state and national level based on recent trends, regulations, decisions and legislation.

The League's mission is to articulate, defend, maintain, and promote the interests and concerns of Illinois communities.
