WHAT DOES THE ILLINOIS LABOR RELATIONS BOARD DO?

The Board conducts secret-ballot elections to determine whether employees want union representation; certifies, modifies, and clarifies bargaining units; investigates and remedies unfair labor practices by public employers and unions; processes information regarding arbitration and mediation that will serve parties in resolving labor-related disputes; and conducts emergency investigations of public employee strikes and strike threats upon demand to determine whether judicial proceedings are warranted to restrain or prevent strike activity imperiling the health and safety of the public.



CAN THE ILLINOIS LABOR RELATIONS BOARD HELP YOU?

Answering the following questions will help you determine whether we may be able to assist you.  

 

  • Are you a public employee?
You must be employed by a governmental entity such as the State of Illinois, an Illinois county, an Illinois municipality or a special district for the Board to have jurisdiction.

If you are not a public employee but a private employee, please see the information provided below for guidance regarding other agencies that may be able to help you.

If you are a public employee, please be aware that there are other statutory limitations on the Board's jurisdiction. For more details, please contact one of our offices.
  • Do you have a job-related question or a problem that also involves union representation in some way?
For example, do you
    1) seek representation by a union?
    2) seek to remove a union as your representative?
    3) think that your employer or your union has threatened you or treated you
    unfairly because you either support or refuse to support a union or because
    you have acted on behalf of fellow employees with regard to working
    conditions?
If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, the Board may be able to help you. For more details, please contact one of our offices. If your question or problem does not appear to be covered under our Act, please see the information provided below for guidance regarding other agencies that may be able to help you.
