Based in Champaign and Chicago, the Labor Education Program is the only state-wide provider of professional training and development for union leaders and workers in Illinois.


The Labor Education Program will consult with your union or organization to design an appropriate educational program covering a variety of subject areas throughout Illinois.

Classes can be presented in multiple formats, including half-day and day-long sessions. We can also provide educational presentations of variable length to accommodate your meeting or conference schedules. All courses can be conducted either in our classrooms or at your site. Classes are arranged to meet at times that are best for your organization, including weekdays and evenings, and weekends.
